It is the time to bring nature back in our everyday life: not the romanticised, sanitised, domesticated version of it, but the gritty, wild stuff.
The current narrative around the environmental crisis offers conflicting and confusing information, it has been wrongly politicised and often induces guilt without offering solutions; this makes accepting that our lifestyles need to be dramatically transformed, a painful process. we procrastinate, waiting for a miracle cure.
Perhaps, to find the solution, we first need to stop seeing nature as a garden landscape to tame or protect. We need to embrace the undomesticated, feral side of nature and allow pockets of wilderness to take over. And live with the simplicity of the philosopher.
