Nature Connectedness

Deepening understanding of the human-nature relationship and meaningful nature experience through applied research, practice and outreach.

Science: Building on the novel transdisciplinary research which comprised Matthew Zylstra’s 2014 PhD dissertation, EarthCollective is partnering with universities and institutions to further the science of nature connectedness/relatedness and its links with meaningful experience and sustainability education through additional research and publications.
Outreach: Insights are communicated and disseminated through eyes4earth.org which serves as an outreach portal for the cumulative research on meaningful nature experience, connectedness with nature and its implications for sustainability education, environmentally responsible behaviour and in advocacy of a “consciousness toward connectedness”.
