The future of Conservation lies in Community
As the digital age continues to lure us away from nature and community we see the rise of obesity, depression, environmental degradation, and philosophical polarization. The latest research in psychology, ecology, and pathology points towards the detrimental effects of disconnection. Addiction is not the opposite of sobriety, it is the opposite of connection. Schools and government agencies are not designed to establish a multi-generational community modeled on connection to nature. In fact, outside of religious institutions, very few organizations will attempt to build community at all, and yet, it is precisely what we need as humans. In our experience, community is the most essential element for cultivating every metric of health in ourselves and in our environment. That is why we say, ‘The future of Conservation lies in Community’.
