We find ourselves in interesting times right now. Not only are we all social distancing because of a gloabl pandemic, but we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction in the planet’s history. The past five have wiped out between 75% and 96% of the planet’s species. Today, species are disappearing 1,000 times faster than in pre-human times.

Technology has simultaneously sparked what author Florence Williams, in The Nature Fix, calls the “biggest mass migration in human history”—a migration indoors, behind screens. This creates a dilemma: Why should people care about nature if they don’t go outside?

We are at a crisis point and need to support nature in our lives, and in the lives of our children for our health and wellbeing and for our very survival.

Join us in this online forum with many of Guelph's active environmental organizations to dream about how to make Guelph the Most Nature Rich City!
