I have previously written about why I, as a physician, among many other reasons, am so excited about what Permaculture can do for us as individuals and as communities (read that article here). I came across this chart yesterday and really wanted to share it. This comes from the David Suzuki Foundation, a Canadian-based organization with the following mission and vision:
- Our mission is to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life, now and for the future.
- Our vision is that within a generation, Canadians act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and interdependent with nature.
I couldn't agree more with their goals. The bottom line is that we, as humans, truly need to be outside in nature. It is vital to our health. Take a close look at the graph, and tell me if you don't agree.
