Man belongs to nature, and man cannot exist alone without nature. Thus, man and nature coexist. However, human development depends on the development of natural resources. Since modern times, with the rapid development of industry and science and technology, the blind utilization of natural resources has damaged the natural environment to a certain extent, resulting in the threat to human normal survival. Especially in recent decades, environmental problems have become more and more serious. Disasters, diseases and other problems have deepened human’s sense of crisis. Therefore, the coexistence of man and nature, environmental problems and environmental governance are urgent problems to be solved to realize the coexistence of man and nature. However, to solve the problems of natural environment and realize the coexistence of man and nature, a very important point is to establish a correct ethical consciousness and clarify the ethical responsibility. Only in this way can we effectively protect the natural environment and promote the continuous development of ecological civilization.
