Eco Attachment Dance is part of the Evolved Nest Initiative (EvolvedNest.org), a web resource to help individuals, families, and communities nest or re-nest themselves.
The Eco Attachment Dance was inspired by the successful experiment that Dr. Darcia Narvaez and her students performed.
Eco Attachment Dance aims to help human beings reengage their connection to the natural world.
Take up the Eco Attachment Dance!
You, your children, your family are invited to discover ways to connect with nature, renew your ecological attachment, and restore your living connection to the Earth.
Dr. Darcia Narvaez and her students did an experiment to increase ecological attachment—nature connection—through small daily practices. Each day participants practiced one activity that increased attention to and being grateful for the natural world. See here for the press release about the study, published in EcoPsychology.
Take up the Eco Attachment Dance to expand your own ecological attachment through an Instagram challenge. Each day for 28 days an activity will be posted for you to practice that day. Each activity takes about 5 minutes (though you can go longer).
