ABSTRACT Environmental problems, also defined as destruction of ecologic balance, are among the most significant problems of
today’s world. Increasing mankind pressure on environment have made destructions of ecological balance evident. Such a case
then emerged a need for not only national, but also international approaches for environmental problems and also emerged
various alternative approaches to solve environmental problems. ‘Deep Ecology’and “Ecological Foot Print” are two basic
approaches developed for sustainable environment. Although Deep Ecology approach is a modern movement, intellectual
origins go back to European romanticand AmericanTranscendentalism of the 18th and 19th century and supports the idea of
“all the living and non-living life forms have the same value with the humans, we should also think of the others and behave
accordingly”. Ecological Foot Print concept puts forth the human pressure exerted on nature which is composed of limited
sources and has a specific resistance power, the reasons of such pressure and provides methods to calculate the human pressure
on natüre. In today’s world with ever-increasing competitiveness, the primary target is to preserved thesources and provide a
sustainable environment while using already available natural resources. In this study, the basic principles of “Deep Ecology”
and “Ecological Foot Print” concepts, two significant concepts for thesustainability of nature, were evaluated and the
relationships between them were put forth.
