Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you for your helpful suggestion. At the moment I am toying with "humanity forms a positive/valuable part of the global ecosystem". Daniel - it doesn't really matter whether this is future tense or not because the phrase occurs is many times and in many forms throughout the lengthy essay :)


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Daniel Penso: I agree with your translation except I would make it future tense as "humanity will turn into/become a positive part of the global ecosystem".
1 hr
  -> Thank you. Obviously, the tense it depends on the context.

agree  David Patrick: Or, playing around as Ruth suggested, "Beneficial integration of humanity in the global ecosystem"
4 hrs
  -> Thank you. Integration was also one of the possible variations on my list.
