This ambitious symposium explored “how to incorporate more nature in and around the places we live to achieve better health and well-being, improved ecological and environmental outcomes, and to contribute to climate change mitigation.”

As the first of its kind on the topic of nature and well-being, the symposium “reached across the spheres of ecology, planning, human health, landscape architecture, and policy.”

Questions

  • Will anyone be live tweeting the event and/or taking collective notes?
  • Is anyone reporting / blogging / vlogging about the symposium?
  • Will the video be available on-demand after the event?

Questions for Catherine: Is there overlap between ‘neighborhood nature’ and ‘radical localism’? The pandemic made us all superaware of our immediate surroundings. How do we maintain this awareness?
