Now more than ever before, we know that having access to natural, green spaces is vital to our mental and physical wellbeing. But, as urban development spreads, grey has become the new green. 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. Taking root from the mission and vision of the campaign, Ellen brings together an inspiring collection of engaging essays, interviews and exercises from leading voices on the subject. Through each expert contributor, we discover a new perspective on why contact with nature should be a protected human right, journeying through personal narratives on mental heath, disability, racism, environmental inequality, creativity, innovation and activism." - Book cover
