Example text

The new conceptualization of the self, and the new identity needs emerging from it, reshape the perspective on the environment. In the same sense that the traditional ideal of identity can be said to have given rise to ecologist views about natural and social relations, contemporary patterns of identity construction give rise to post-ecologist conceptualizations of environmental problems and imperatives. The ecologist politics of nature was shaped by the principles of libertarianism, post-materialism, inclusiveness and long-term continuity.

Also, there can be no doubt that the more radical ecological demands, in particular, have lost much of their wider societal appeal and mobilizing force. Even though concerns for health and safety, or consumer protection, remain high on the agenda, and although some radical demands continue to be rehearsed in contemporary movements against corporate globalization, a certain deradicalization of the ecological debate and eco-politics is undeniable. Environmental issues have indeed lost much of their ideological explosiveness.

The idea was that it is part of a citizen’s responsibility to be involved in the decision-making process and make the voice of those directly affected heard along with the interests of private owners and the government. It is true that such groups, identified as ‘nimbys’ (not in my back yard), tend to disband after the specific problem has been resolved, but the diverse nature of environmental hazards has been recognized as a mobilizer of political protest. Usually it was not a one-off protest, but cyclical form of political activity (Brand 1990; Della Porta and Diani 1999: 165–92).
