There are five key ways to connect with nature: Contact, Emotion, Beauty, Meaning, Compassion.
Part 3: Beauty – use the natural world as inspiration for something creative
One way to spend time appreciating the beauty of nature is to find something in nature that inspires a piece of art, a drawing, poem, a song or dance. Nature is full of interesting and beautiful shapes, patterns, colours and sounds – how does it inspire you to be creative? You could:
Create some wild art using dead sticks, leaves, or flowers
Take a photo of your favourite flower or insect from different angles
Do a painting inspired by the colours of something you saw outside
Recreate movement or sound seen in nature in a dance or song
Humans are part of the natural world and connecting with it matters – for our own wellbeing, our understanding and to inspire us to protect nature.
