Abstract: How can Eco-linguistics contribute to an elaboration and realization of UN’s global goals for sustainable development? The paper outlines a few principles for the communication both inside and across the communities and eco-zones, dealing with the interdependency of the three parameters of the biological, social, and ideological conditions. Climate change is today an obvious example of dramatical change of human life conditions forcing the need of sharing territories and goods in more solidariy ways. The situation calls for new ways of trans-cultural communication and life-forms with deep respect for the wild and civilised ecology of all species.
ECO-REBEL5The paper refers theoretically to the Eco-linguistics tradition from 1987 until today, especially The Danish Dialectical Theory of Language and Eco-linguistics (BANG; DØØR; NASH; STEFFENSEN,2007), and focuses on elaborations and analyses of all kinds of language & languaging (communication, interactivity, discourses, dialogues, and texts) in the context of reorganising the local and global human life forms into more socially equal and sustainable eco-civilizations.
