Reconnecting with Nature

Human evolution is intrinsically tied to our changing connection to the natural world. As we moved from the agricultural age through the various stages of the industrial and now digital revolutions, humans have sought to domesticate and eventually to dominate the environment, producing a radical change in the way we live and consume. Now we realize the urgent need to regenerate the balance between humans, animals and nature, creating a more healthy environment for all. As we come full circle in these relationships, we are beginning to understand the value of Indigenous and traditional strategies, which combined with new technologies can lead us toward the design of a more green and vibrant future.
