The Green Web
is a small independent research group and network with a
left biocentric perspective. (This is a socially-conscious tendency within the
deep ecology movement.) The Green Web aims to serve the needs of activists in
the environmental and green movements. We do not solicit or accept government
or corporate funding.
The nucleus of the Green Web is
based in Nova Scotia, Canada. It was formed
in 1988. Our network of information distribution and exchange exists on a local,
provincial, national, and international level.
We believe the world-wide
industrial capitalist system is destroying the
This system, with its human-centered view of nature as a "resource" and its
roots in endless economic growth and consumerism, has us all on a death path.
Needed are new ecological, social, political, spiritual and cultural visions, and a
reduction in human population. A new environmental ethic and associated
environmental economics are required. Societies have to be ecologically
sustainable for the survival of all species on Earth.
We have so far produced or reproduced eighty bulletins, plus a number
of articles, book reviews, etc. Any material may be freely reproduced with
acknowledgement and if no profit is made. Green Web Bulletins have covered a
number of main themes:
