Just Connect with nature

In my search to understand how better to use the internet as both and educational and proactive medium, I stumbled upon an another profound presentation series called tries to bring together people and inspire them to go do something!

The Do Lectures is an antidote to the collective apathy of our generation and another bold step to providing information to get people off the couch and out connecting with people and nature. Speakers at the gathering offered tools and insights into how they take action in their own life. Lifestyle design expert Timothy Ferris of the The Four Hour Work Week presented, along with ever-intriguing Yun Hider, a professional forager, who in his own words has spent the last thirteen years foraging.

In his talk he shares simple strategies to help people reconnect to the land and use local plant to provide sustenance. Yun is a connector par-excellence and he pulls at the sense of the audience, giving them a chance to taste his foraged foods. Audience members immediately are able to experience the culinary potential of their back woods!

Yun praises the art of pausing in nature. He explains how foraging takes time and this helps to forge a new relationship to the land. His simple tools include guide books, medicinal books, wild food books which he is constantly refers to on his sojourns.

Yun currently has a few projects including Mountain Food a business which distributes foraged food Mountain Food and another, titled Precious Planet. Precious planet is a: non profit-making organisation committed to preserving areas of vital biodiversity. In order to do this, Precious Planet carries out specific projects aimed at protecting and regenerating marine and terrestrial biodiversity.

Our Precious Planet project is based on a simple concept of connecting students and linking schools by having students map out their local environment to help them understand the natural environment and their impact on this space.

  1. Mapping their local Area: people, plants and pollution.
  2. Calculate their ecological footprint.
  3. Plant a tree.

My big do inspired from the conference, include:

  1. to connect my local school with the Precious Planet project
  2. spend time looking over guidebooks before and during my time in nature
  3. research what I can start to forage for food in my local environment
  4. connect with the Do conference as a participant or speaker.

What you can do:

  1. Stage your own Do it Lecture Series.
  2. Take the ideas from their lectures and spread them through action or in the form of stories.
  3. Do it: think of your own small ways to take action.

Everyone knows they should take action, the smaller and more manageable the better to begin with. Once you feel with the small stuff, you won’t sweat the big actions in your life.
