Biophilia – Nature’s Call
 
The Biophilia hypothesis suggests humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life.
 
Edward O’Wilson introduced and popularised the hypothesis in his book ‘Biophilia’ (1984)
 
He defines biophilia as the urge to affiliate with other forms of life.
 
Exposure to nature has never been more important than it is today.
 
We are spending more and more time indoors, looking at screens and away from the natural world.
 
What this means is that we are missing out on essential psychological and physiological benefits that exposure to the nature provides us with.
