Life environmentalism: Indigenous policy
and theory responses to environmental challenges in Japan
Life environmentalism (seikatsu kankyo shugi 生活環境主義) is a set of
theories and policy approaches to resolve local environmental problems,
which originally emerged in the 1980s in Japan. Some of its main tenets
resemble the claims of contemporary Anglo-American social science
studies, and may no longer appear as novel. Nevertheless, I will
demonstrate that we can still learn useful lessons about what it means
to build theories and policies by taking historical geographical
contexts seriously, as well as about our deep-rooted assumptions about
socio-environmental problems and solutions.
