Greetings plant people and biophilic designers,
Last month we received the happy news that GPGB.org had 10,015 visits from unique IP addresses in a 24 hour period.
Some of these are visitors to this page where, thanks to our donors, we are curating research papers and articles to amplify the work and voices of biophilic design thought leaders.
While researching articles for this resource page I noticed how many papers are beginning to reference a potential correlation between increased awareness of biophilic design benefits with an increased climate and mental health activism.
To quote from one research paper (Exploring Challenges and Opportunities…) “Rather than relying on abstract universal ideas of nature, using evidence-based biophilic design and policy at a building, neighborhood, and city scale, to link our daily lives with biodiversity, may encourage sense of place and make environmental action more meaningful. Then, improving our natural capital in the urban built environment might help address the current climate and disease crisis, as well as improving our physical and mental health.”
I believe we are beginning to see that our work to accelerate the adoption biophilic design is having impact in professional and grass roots communities outside of our horticultural, design, and entrepreneurial “silos”.
And how great is this! What could be better than to strengthen our professional community, AND contribute to the movement to recover the planet’s health and enhance human wellbeing?
