Nature in the News-May


This month, we have added a new white paper from GPGB board member Jim Mumford and his colleagues in the Silverado Roundtable. “The Nature of the Post-Pandemic Workplace” summarizes key findings from recent surveys and research, and contains new infographics. You can find it here.

We’re sharing links to biophilia-related posts on GPGB’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. Please enjoy reading and sharing this information with your communities and clients.

To grow the demand for access to nature in the built environment we request a Retweet, Favorite, or Regram from each of you.

Need help figuring out how to Regram? Here’s a helpful guide.
