Abstract

The state of the world is progressively declining due to the growing disconnect between humans and nature. Therefore, ecological living is essential. To be prepared for the future, it is necessary to know past ideas and discussions and examine their evolution over time. Alternative ecological life ideologies, which existed in various formats with their effects from the past to the present, show that societies have been in search of an ecological life for the future since the emergence of the climate crisis while questioning whether an ideal ecological life can exist. This study employs comparative case study investigation and discourse analysis to identify common themes in various ecological ideologies, their intended audiences, primary objectives, and societal impacts while questioning an ideology's success criterion. It is assumed that today's eco-smart city projects and urban green plans for the future are at the end of this chronology of ecological life ideologies, which evolve into many different formats from experimental communal settlements to green utopianism, from visualized manifestos to smart urban planning. The development of ecological life ideologies is closely tied to the evolution of societal ecological awareness, with each influencing the other in an iteration, resulting in an overall increase in ecological consciousness within the society. Thus, it is questioned whether the concept of Eco-Futurism can be used as a perception tool in landscape design with the continuous development of technology at the source of this mutual development for landscape architects as the creators of society's environmental perceptions in daily life.
