It’s hard to care about things we don’t know, and that includes nature. By extension, it includes the environment, climate, and our stressed planet. In this session, we will consider how contact with nature influences what is known as environmental attitudes and behaviors and more fundamentally, how we as individuals become changed through our relationship to nature. Examination of scientific evidence will launch our discussion. Plus, how you can participate in scientific research to move forward understanding of how time in nature affects brain health!
