Living in a sustainable relationship with nature

03 March / 13.15 -14.15

Having recognised in time that our future as a species depends on the health and viability of the only planet that we can live on, we took George Monbiot’s advice and stopped putting our various wicked problems into boxes marked ‘‘climate’, ‘biodiversity’, ‘pollution’, ‘deforestation’, ‘soil loss’, ‘overfishing’, ‘drought, ‘flood’, ‘fires’ because we understood that “all these boxes contain aspects of one crisis”. We recognised that maintaining human health and wellbeing depended on a healthy ecosystem along with our economy and all the resources that sustain life. We acknowledged that we needed to control consumption so that we could all have resilient and sustainable life support systems. So, having put the restoration of our natural environment at the top of our ‘to do’ list with immediate and effective action taken by all including planners, designers and developers, we find ourselves in a ‘Nature Positive’ UK in 2030.
