ABOUT
The word Ecology derives from the Greek term Oikos, that means House, and from Logos, that means Study. For a long time, this "house study", i.e., the study of the ecosystems we inhabit, was mainly supported by scientists, environmentalists, and biologists.

These professionals were engaged in understanding and solving problems of the maintenance and preservation of the environment and "external nature".
However, in the last decades, this ecological perception has been extended to several fields of knowledge, such as Psychologies, Philosophies, Arts, and Pedagogies.

In their studies and practices, these "new Ecologies" address the care and preservation of the "internal nature" of human beings themselves, i.e., their physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual health, in communion and interdependence with environmental/social nature health.

As much as these ecological dimensions promote an integral perception, of mutual care, between the human being, environment and socio-cultural context, we can say that we share organizational systems that go in the opposite direction of this way; environmental, political, economic, and existential catastrophes are some of the aspects that indicate this.



Still, we can say these challenges begin to be perceived, questioned and reevaluated by the new generations, who seek to live a life that promotes inclusion, belonging, equality and freedom, understanding the human being as part of the living organism of the Earth. In this way, ecological awareness can help us in this process by unveiling perceptions of health and well being of the being, in constant integration with himself, with others and the environment in which he lives.

Based on this concept, we present Self Ecologies, itinerant educational space, dedicated to the experimentation and learning of Ecological dimensions. Our purpose is to cultivate a culture of integration and regeneration of the various facets of reality, in communion with the diversities, adversities, and singularities of each living being, in communion with Planet Earth, our ecological home.
