What is EcoArt?
EcoArt is an artistic practice or discipline proposing paradigms sustainable with the life forms and resources of our planet. It is composed of artists, scientists, philosophers and activists who are devoted to the practices of ecological art. EcoArt is distinguished by a focus on systems and interrelationships within our environment: the ecological, geographic, political, biological and cultural.
EcoArt creates awareness, stimulates dialogue, changes human behavior towards other species, and encourages the long-term respect for the natural systems with which we coexist. EcoArt manifests as socially engaged, activist, community-based restorative or interventionist. There are numerous approaches to EcoArt.

A current definition of EcoArt, drafted collectively by the EcoArtNetwork is "... an art practice that embraces an ethic of social justice in both its content and form/materials. EcoArt is created to inspire caring and respect, stimulate dialogue, and encourage the long-term flourishing of the social and natural environments in which we live. It commonly manifests as socially engaged, activist, community-based, restorative or interventionist art."
