LECTURE
The Human Relation to Nature

Is Nature a threat to humans or vital for our survival? Most people would certainly say ‘both’. But why do we view nature as we do? Why do some people protect trees and others cut them down? For hundred thousands of years

For hundred thousands of years, humans have walked on Earth living peacefully with Nature. It is only within the last 150 years things have started to change, but what happened?

Learn more about the history and psychology of humans’ relationship with nature and book us for a lecture or workshop.

The lecture can be held in both English and Danish.
