About the webinar

Human beings have a deep seated connection with nature that was slowly eroded as societies became ever more urban. By 2050 it’s estimated that 75% of people will live in cities. The average American spends 93% of their time indoors, far removed from the natural landscapes that surrounded people until modern times. But some psychologists believe that this disconnection from nature is linked to the recent surge in mental health problems or at least that exposure to natural landscapes can be very therapeutic. For many the pandemic lockdown brought a reconnection with green spaces as people turned to nature visiting the countryside and walking in parks to soothe fears and anxieties.

Connecting with nature brings huge wellbeing benefits, especially for our mental health. This webinar explores those benefits and looks at how we can incorporate nature into our daily routines. It also looks at the ways that, both large and small, businesses have introduced principles of natural design into the workplace environment.
