ABSTRACT
Our modern society is facing a lot of changes-values, insecurity, ecological problems, financial crisis. For some countries this is more intense and has various faces. It is the time where different approaches have come to the scene to give their own views and solutions. It is the time that ecopsychology can have a big part in reminding our natural sources of resistance and recreation of our natural self. In this lecture, this issue is going to be discussed-how is able ecopsychology to contribute to our modern society to transform people per se, or society as a whole towards problems that affect ourselves, our human society and the planet. What this approach can offer to our modern world to survive and positively develop towards a better survival and improvement as a whole inner and outer system.
