What nature Recovery means to me

While I would probably define nature recovery as meaning a global increase in the scale, abundance and variety of resilient, biodiverse ecosystems; its personal meaning for me relates to healing society’s broken relationship with nature and being a good ancestor to the next generation by striving to leave the biosphere in a better condition than it is today.

Environments that make me happy

Walking in Ancient woodland, steaming in a mobile sauna, sipping a nice drink in a jazz club and lazing on the sofa with my family
