“By inquiring about the human-nature relationship as individuals, communities and organisations we come to ‘know’ that we intrinsically belong to this one ecological system. This wisdom can lead us to act in caring ways that support our collective wellbeing and ensure a thriving future. See nature – see self in nature – see nature in wellbeing and environmental sustainability”
