Sustainable development, Ecology of the Mind, Ecology of the Environment: a technological development in harmony with the living beings and the environment

The author traces the development of the guideline of the WPA Section "Ecology, Psychiatry and Mental Health" back to their source and discusses the thinking of the psychiatrist Roger Montenegro who wrote in 1995 “The human species currently stands at a crucial stage. The ongoing damage we have done to the ecosystems we depend upon for our survival has led us to a situation in which it has become urgent to plan some sort of concerted action with the goal of realizing satisfying conditions for everybody.”

Following this, the author analyzes the impact environmental degradation has in deepening socioeconomic inequalities, poverty, hunger, analphabetism and diseases (mental diseases first of all). Some examples for these global processes can be found in the international dependency on raw materials, in neocolonialism and unfair trade exchange, and thus, more generally, in the evaluation of the social and economical dimensions, in conservation and management of the resources of development, in the strengthening of the principal bodies of human cooperation, in the cooperation between governments and the different international organizations and finally in the promotion of an ecological awareness.
