How much wilderness do we human beings need?

Do wilderness experiences perceived with all senses hold the key to the much-needed societal transformation towards a sustainable future of our planet?

It is my pleasure to share an article I wrote for décodage, a BLOG hosted by the Swiss Academy for Humanities and Social Science on the question of “How much wilderness do human beings need?

I felt the urge to share my own nature experiences with a broader audience, by building a bridge from experiential, spiritually oriented approaches to the more science-based arguments on why we should protect wild spaces. Thereby connecting my work as an integrative geographer and the mountain nature retreats I offer.

I drafted this article mostly outside in wild mountain spaces, inspired and informed by the harmony, beauty and perfection of wild, untouched landscapes of the Swiss Alps.
