The Nature Fix

Award-winning journalist and author Florence Williams discusses compelling findings outlined in her newest book, The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative. Nature serves as a welcome reprieve from the endless demands and constant stimuli of modern life. She explores what current research indicates about the myriad health benefits of the great outdoors. What do these findings mean for a society that is increasingly disconnected from nature, and what can we do about it? Join us to share in the discussion!

She is a contributing editor at Outside Magazine and a freelance writer for the New York TimesNew York Times MagazineNational Geographic, The New York Review of BooksSlate, Mother Jones and numerous other publications.

Moving beyond the traditional Q&A, audience members will have the opportunity to network with each other about local initiatives relevant to the topic, and share ways that everyone can contribute.
