Center for Humans and Nature

We’re a group of engaged and curious thinkers who understand that ideas matter.
The Center for Humans and Nature partners with some of the brightest minds to explore human responsibilities to each other and the more-than-human world. We bring together philosophers, ecologists, artists, political scientists, anthropologists, poets and economists, among others, to think creatively about a resilient future for the whole community of life.

The Center for Humans and Nature connects people with ideas through big Questions, our journal Minding Nature, our City Creatures Blog, and special Events.

Across the world, people are striving for fairer and resilient economies, truly democratic cultures, and healthy, thriving communities. Along with our network of Contributors, the Center offers diverse ideas on how transforming humanity’s relationship with nature can inform our responses to these interconnected challenges.

You can help by weighing in with your thoughts and contributing to our growing community of thinkers.
