Nature Is A Human Right: Why We’re Fighting for Green in a Gray World by Ellen Miles

$19.99

Having access to natural, green spaces is vital to our physical and mental well-being. But, as urban development spreads, gray has become the new green.

Already, concrete outweighs every tree, bush, and shrub on Earth. Nature deprivation is a fast-growing epidemic, harming the health and happiness of hundreds of millions of people worldwide – especially vulnerable and marginalized groups. To combat this, Nature Is a Human Right, founded by Ellen Miles in 2020, is working to make access to green space a recognized right for all, not a privilege.

This book has taken root from the mission and vision of the campaign, bringing together a collection of engaging essays, interviews, and exercises curated by Ellen from a selection of expert ambassadors and supporters (including authors, artists, scientists, human rights experts, television hosts, TED speakers, and climate activists). Through each contributor, we discover a new perspective on why contact with nature should be a protected human right, journeying through personal narratives on mental health, disability, racism, environmental inequality, creativity, innovation, and activism.

This captivating and enlightening collection of original writing and ideas highlights the importance of nature, the threats of nature deprivation, and the work that needs to be done to make our global future happier, healthier, and more equal.
