People with Impact: Connecting with Nature to Heal, to Calm, and to Inform Design
July 12-1PM EST, 2020
There’s a lot happening in the world around us – from pandemics to social movements to economic instability. The way we work, play, and interact with each other has shifted our reality, and let’s face it – we’re living in a stressful time. So, how can we reduce that stress? One simple way is to spend time in nature.
Join us for an interactive conversation with three experts on the positive impacts of nature on people. They will expand upon the scientific benefits of spending time in nature, share their unique career paths as advocates of the natural environment, and ways you can integrate more nature into your life.
