A LIFETIME OF LEARNING
With the rise of global homogenization and a steep decline in time spent outdoors over the past few decades, are we as humans losing our love of place? If so, how does this loss affect our chances of — and even desire to — conserve and protect the world's natural resources?
In his engaging lecture "The Extinction of Experience: Youth, Nature, and Sustainability in the Digital Age" on Sept. 27th, Dr. Scott D. Sampson — Research Curator at the Natural History Museum of Utah and Adjunct Professor of Geology and Geophysics at the U — addressed how we might broker a new human-nature relationship in this globally-interconnected digital age.
