    Description

    Over the past 150 years, a blink of an eye in terms of human history, our experiences in relation to nature have changed radically in much of the world. Dramatic migration to cities—coupled with urban planning and design that emphasized gray over green infrastructure, inequality, and perhaps an overvaluing of technology—has led many people to be divorced from nature, with little access to nature’s social and ecological benefits. At the same time, stress levels are rising. Though medicine has made incredible advances in recent decades, life spans that had for many years been lengthening are now contracting in some communities (Squires 2017). Our communities continue to face old and new challenges: some human-made, some natural, and often a mix of both—as with Hurricane Sandy in 2012 in the New York metropolitan area.
