"In 1992, Buddhist teacher and deep ecologist Joanna Macy asked" Path of the Friend "to establish an environmental institute devoted to furthering the field of deep ecology through education and advocacy. We responded by creating the Institute for Deep Ecology. For six years we organized two and three-week residential summer programs in California, as well as weekend workshops and presentations throughout the year. The IDE brought together deep ecology teachers, writers, and activists from around the U.S. and helped to cross-fertilize this field and establish it as a legitimate area of study in higher education." [1]

The Institute for Deep Ecology is a project of the Tides Foundation. [2]
