    The study of human and environmental interactions focuses on the symbiotic relationship between humans and the environment. This discussion cannot be separated from socio-cultural aspects that involve cross-disciplinary discussions, such as psychology, anthropology, sociology, social psychology, geography, ethology, and so on seek to find answers to questions about how the environment has been shaped, perceived, used and enjoyed. This study aims to explore the nature of human interaction and the environment. A qualitative method with an explanatory descriptive approach was used to find the philosophical background of human and environmental interactions. Based on the exploration, it was found that human characteristics as individuals or groups play a role in shaping their environment, there are unique mechanisms for connecting humans and the environment, and there is an influence of the environment on humans or vice versa.
