Deep Adaptation

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Deep Adaptation is a concept and social movement based on the view that humanity needs to prepare for the possibility of societal collapse, as environmental change increasingly disrupts social, economic, and political systems. Unlike climate change adaptation, which aims to adapt societies gradually to the effects of climate change, Deep Adaptation is premised on acceptance of impending abrupt transformations of the environment. The concept was originally shared in a paper released by the University of Cumbria in July 2018, from sustainability leadership professor Jem Bendell.
