Nature Institute

Nature around us is whole and interconnected. Though we are part of nature, we do not yet fathom her depths, and our actions to do not embody her wisdom. A fundamental shift in our way of viewing the world is necessary if we would contribute to nature’s unity rather than dissolution. At The Nature Institute, we develop new qualitative and holistic approaches to seeing and understanding nature and technology. We work to create a new paradigm that embraces nature’s wisdom in shaping a sustainable and healthy future through research, publications, and educational programs.
