Restoring
the Human-Nature bond

Friday 4 and Saturday 5 June 2021

There is only one Earth, not one planet for nature and another for humans. However, it seems our planet is being treated as a back-drop in most people’s lives. The Covid-19 pandemic is a reminder that all living beings are interdependent, including humans. If one part of the system changes, it impacts on us all. We have the opportunity to reorient our societies, our mindsets and economies to secure a sustainable way.
