Low-Carbon Energy Futures-Cover.jpgDo people who are in personal contact with nature develop a greater appreciation of the biodiversity that surrounds them and are they more likely to take action to protect it? The Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Family Foundation, the Foundation de la Faune du Québec and the David Suzuki Foundation have conducted an extensive research initiative entitled "The Nature Project". The executive summary, available in French and in English, provides the highlights of this collaboration, including the many workshops and consultations held with both researchers and practitioners active in this field. The research report, available only in French, documents the impacts of "nature deficit disorder", as well as providing potential means to achieving an enriched relationship with nature leading to pro-environmental practices (especially those encouraging biodiversity conservation and maintaining healthy ecosystems.)
