General introduction

Abstract : The ecology of sport (Andrieu and Loland 2017), along with body ecology and emersive leisure, is a new way of using bodily techniques when immersed in nature, in the elements and inside one’s body through the power of awareness. Leisure becomes ‘emersive’ when it involves the production of new emotions in the body: ‘emersion’ is the activation of what is living in the body. With environmental ecology, the ecological conscience finds a way of preserving and fitting into ecosystems by using restoration and recycling techniques: ecological ‘immersers’ may penetrate the wilds and see the signs of human degradation but they do so by defining a philosophy of aesthetics and of aesthetical immersion in the elements.
