Ecoist is an civil society organization that is devoted to solving issues of all aspects of sustainabiltiy, through introduction of innovative, creative and holistic approaches, involving public, private and civil sector for the most synergistic effect. Ecoist website serves as an informative base for people that want contribute and participate in the preservation of nature and environment. Philosophy behind ECOIST as a name we chose to reflect what we believe in is nicely and clearly put by Professor Dr. David Orr ''When we heal the Earth, we heal ourselves''
With the assumption that, if you are already visiting a site that deals with environment, you are partly an Ecoist yourself. In that sense we didn't want to talk much about what you already know: how necessary it is to recycle, to use renewable energy resources, to use green transport and to be eco-friendy in general. That's why we want to support you with specific information on one question that is often neglected: HOW?
Ecoist also believes that things in environmental field are developing slower then the actual market demand because of fundamental misunderstanding that we are entering a new green era and that it will inevitably come. We also believe that in the long run, it makes absolute economical sense to practice sustainable development. Relativity in understanding of the problem comes from a different perspective: if you would like to find a solution for a very short period of time or you prefere to fundamentally solve the problem, spending less funds and less energy in the future.
We are guided by this principle and we do believe that every person has higher or lower level of Ecoism in themselves. We believe that every person wants to improve the quality of their life and environment and that environmental field doesn't fall into a category of 'alternative' approach anymore, but has slipped into our everyday life and slowly will become mainstream. We also believe that technology and systems will highly improve so that when we look back in time, we will laugh at our (today's) primitve systems.
