"A world without nature is no world. Stop separating 'humans' and 'nature'. Humans are part of nature." ~ Greta Thunberg
Are humans really separate from nature? This quote by Greta Thunberg answers no!
👣 Western societies view humans as separate from and better than nature. This is called “anthropocentrism”.
👎 Thunberg’s message is that anthropocentrism is wrong. Humans are part of nature and nature is part of us.
🌎 We are 1 species in the biosphere, sharing it with non-human species, both plant and animal.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
😱 Anthropocentrism has led to a human-nature disconnect: we see nature as something “other”, to fear, control, or use.
⚠️ Because of this, humans have over-exploited and degraded nature, resulting in the extinction-climate crisis, which threatens all life on Earth.
🐾 Solving the crisis requires a human-nature reconnect.
👥 This reconnection is needed at a collective and individual level.
