Nurturing our natural surroundings is an element often left out of the collective urban consciousness. We don’t grow our own food and we are oblivious to where our waste goes. As we grow distant from nature, the lavish ways of urban life continue to fuel ignorance, breeding a consumptive lifestyle with little or no regard of its overarching impacts to our planet. Worse of all, we fail to understand the magnitude of impacts we are inflicting on ourselves.
The urban pitfall.
The demands and desires of urban life are significant factors behind our planet’s degradation. It is expected that 2/3 of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. Indonesia is expected to have 56% of our population live in cities by 2035. If we don’t alter the urban way of living, we risk irreversibly corrupting this planet and diminishing our own quality of life.
A ripple of reconnection, a wave of change.
Reconnecting with Nature is about gaining awareness of our role as part of Mother Earth. It is about understanding the reality we face and choosing to take concrete daily actions that can truly create a wave of difference. Sometimes, reconnecting can start with something as simple as nurturing a seed, from sow to harvest – and we’re here to help you along the way.
