Bioregionalism is an ideology, that believes certain communities in their region, climate flora, fauna and environment affects how people act in their community and in their environment. Therefore it is environmentalist so we can better the human condition in these places. It is against ideas like capitalism and other homogeneous economies due to lack of concern for the environment. Bioregionalism is NOT for the idea of free markets, EVEN IF they follow economic regulations, as they think free markets are inherently harmful to the environment.
The history of bioregionalism beings in the 60's when Peter Berg advocated for it. Although the term wasn't coined until the the 70's by Allen Van Newkirk, it was still an ideology just without a name. Peter advocated for a system where certain bioregions (Environments), were separated by others because certain bioregions affect how people act and thus it would be better for people in the certain bioregions to be separated from others. Bioregionalist activism is mostly seen now in Cascadia (bioregion) in where the Doug flag is implemented.
Bioregionalism believes that people are shaped by their environment, and that we should let people in their certain bioregion flourish. To flour they say a couple of changes (a lot) need to be made in these bioregions, Like the abolition of markets and economies that put profit over the environment or more polices in these bioregions to help the environment. The environments are different so usually different polices are implemented. Bioregionalists see humanity and its culture as part of nature, focusing on building a positive and sustainable relationship with the environment. Bioregionalism can also expand to Biogeographic realms that look at continents environment and their geography make up. Bioregionalism also advocates encourage the cultivation of native plants of the region, encourage the use of local materials where possible and ensure that political boundaries match ecological boundaries.
Bioregionalism is very concerned about the environment. Therefore he usually yells and screams at balls that don't have much concern for the environment. He doesn't like when other environmentalists treat humans and their culture as an enemy of nature.
