About the Book

Do you ever think about your relationship with Nature?

This book is about the importance of nature and the need for (re)connection, a topic that concerns all of us.

You will discover the links between nature and health, nature and nutrition, the disconnection from nature and how to (re)connect. But the main part of the book consists of twenty-seven interviews with a group of inspirational people, who are all strongly connected with nature, through profession or personality. The interviews produced twenty-seven fascinating stories about the importance of nature. Be inspired.

The book is full of fascinating facts and practical advice, focusing on the special relationship we all have, consciously or unconsciously, with nature, the benefits for our health and well-being, and the necessity to restore this lost connection to save our planet and our future.
