Human ecology is the study of the relationship of man with his natural,
social, and built environments. As the global market economy sweeps across
the world, Southeast nations drive their economic development to remarkable

However, social gaps have widened, environmental damage has relentlessly
advanced, and human right violations, regional/ethnic conflicts have fallen
into a deadlock. In the process of forming nation-states after being freed
form the yoke of colonial domination, Southeast nations, especially the
Philippines, which have become mired in the middle-income trap, have
struggled to integrate their diverse ethnicities, religions, and culture,
and have expressed criticism and resistance, based on religious and moral
values, to the changes in the social environment under globalization.

In a recent encyclical, the Catholic Church has sternly criticized the
widening of the disparity in wealth and the destruction of the environment,
calling for social justice and restoration of ethics. The encyclical raises
the concept of human ecology. This seminar hopes to be a first step towards
understanding the meaning and significance of this key concept.
