Handouts from my lecture at CEMUS, Centre for Environment and Development Studies in Uppsala
The lecture had the purpose of giving a range of different perspectives on happiness and the man - nature relationship and present theories from different fields such as Positive Psychology, Environmental Psychology, Neuroscience, Ecophilosophy, Medicine etc.
The ambition was also to present examples from different parts of the world concerning happiness, health, sustainable land use, food production & societies, and to show that humanity is more dependent on the natural environment than on things and materialistic behavior, if we want to live a happy and good life.
- an article with the title Can we be Happy within Ecological Limits? intended to supplement the lecture.
