Description

An inspiring collection of original writing from world-leading 'green' voices on why contact with nature is vital for our mental, physical and social wellbeing

Already, concrete outweighs every tree, bush and shrub on Earth.

Nature deprivation is a fast-growing epidemic, harming the health and happiness of hundreds of millions of people worldwide - especially vulnerable and marginalized groups. To combat this, Nature is a Human Right, founded by Ellen Miles in 2020, is working to make access to green space a recognized right for all, not a privilege.

This book brings together a collection of engaging essays, interviews and exercises, curated by Ellen, from a selection of expert ambassadors and supporters (including authors, scientists, human rights experts, TED speakers, and climate activists). Through each contributor, we discover a new perspective on why contact with nature should be a protected human right, journeying through personal narratives on mental health, disability, racism, environmental inequality, creativity, and activism.

This is a captivating collection of original writing and ideas that highlights the importance of nature, the threats of nature deprivation, and the work that must be done to make our future happier, healthier and more equal.
