Humans & Nature: how we shape and are shaped by our environment

A weekend seminar where leading thinkers will challenge us to re-examine our relationship to nature – and to the world we have built.

This unique and insightful weekend will bring together scientists, architects, anthropologists, psychologists and urban planners to look at how we relate to the natural world, and how this knowledge can help us create a more sustainable future.
