One evening, SHIFT held a screening of Love Thy Nature which shows the ways a renewed connection with nature is key to our personal health and that of our planet. Narrated by Liam Neeson, the award winning film underscores how deeply we’ve lost touch with nature and how a new era of nature-connection has led to “Biomimicry” where scientists look to the natural world for the most brilliant inventions, social ecologists unveil how nature restores our communities, and doctors are finding new ways in which nature heals the body, mind, and brain. Presented in person by Director Sylvie Rokab, Christopher Golden, PhD, Aruni Bhatnagar, PhD, and the Trust for Public Lands’ Linda Hwang for a conversation about the connection between public health and the health of the planet that provides a global context for SHIFT’s 2019 theme.
