Why our connections matter
The strength of our connections to life on Earth directly impacts our health and well being and the health and well-being of all life on Earth.
"Living Connections is a life-affirming experiment in connecting people more deeply to their natural environment and to each other. This is facilitated by state-of-the-art AR and VR technologies, in a moment in time when we desperately need to harness the latter in a nature-focused way for the sake of the survival of our planet and our own mental and physical health." Jian Jun Zhang, Head of the National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA).
TIME TO CONNECT WITH NATURE, TIME TO CONNECT WITH OURSELVES
Our connections to life on Earth help our mental and physical health.
In the UK atleast 74% of children play outside less that 1 hour a day, thats an hour less time outside than prison inmates.
KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS OF OUR INTERDEPENDANCY
Knowing and recorgnising our dependancy on life on Earth gives us a sense of respect, a role, a sense of place.
‘’Our new relationship with nature needs to recognise that we are incredibly integrated into the ecosystems and connected to the secret network of nature. We can’t survive without it’’. Prof Miles Richardson, Unversity of Derby
