"Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them." Bill Vaughan
Ancient? Innovative? Or just a trend?
What if you were asked to think of a place where you feel relaxed and at peace? Chances are you would see yourself in a natural environment. For nature has been our home for millions of years and we are wired for it. Yet in recent years, we've been spending more and more time inside, in concrete surroundings and in front of screens.
We deprive ourselves from experiencing not only its health benefits, but also its teachings and beauty.
Various studies have now established that nature plays a vital role in our well-being. It helps us reset our body and mind, but also sparks our imagination and reinforces our relationships.
As a result, nature-based initiatives are spreading around the world and SHINRIN-YOKU LONDON, in the same breath, aims at supporting people to reintroduce that missing green link into their lives.
