Will the children who inherit the Earth, and the potential issues that might still remain unresolved, feel the innate desire to preserve it? Or is our connection to nature being lost? This interesting and thought provoking concept was introduced to me by Kim Marshall McLean, a PhD classmate of mine at George Mason University and a NOAA Biologist. Kim is researching how exposure to the outdoors and the lessons learned in nature shape our understanding and even our intelligence. The sociological and environmental information gathered from this kind of research is far reaching and has implications for business as well. It is the hope that future leaders, especially those in business, will retain the close kinship with nature.
Patanjali was right, we don’t need outside “things” to live a fulfilled existance.
This comes at a time when it will take a lot more than recycling and buying organic to reverse our destructive path toward global climate change. We need to make a cultural shift away from consumerism and toward the simple joys of life, like enjoying a walk on a beach, biking through a park, or hiking in a national forest.
