Reconnection - Miles Richardson - Sept/Oct 23
Our deep read for September & October asks how did our relationship with nature become broken, why does it matter and how can we fix it?
Yet solutions focus on technical fixes to treat the symptoms of that damaged relationship, such as reducing carbon emissions and increasing habitat. What we urgently need is a whole new way of thinking.
Reconnection explores Prof Miles Richardson's pioneering work on the science of Nature Connectedness to reveal our hidden links with nature, setting out a way to revivify the relationship across society and charting a path to a meaningful life that unites both human and nature’s wellbeing.
And everybody has a role to play. From business leaders to conservationists, teachers to medics, from drivers to walkers, we can all reduce the damage we do and find new ways to bring nature into our lives. This timely book considers the problems scientifically, then offers simple, practical, positive steps for how we can all work towards a better world.
