Coming Together to Celebrate World Environment Day

The environment is central to our wellbeing in so many ways; from the health benefits of connecting with nature, to the natural resources that sustain our lives. That is why here at the Network of Wellbeing we decided to mark World Environment Day 2016 in a number of ways. This post shares a little more about our World Environment Day celebrations, and also offers us a chance to say a huge thanks to all those of you who got involved.

Nature is an Inseparable Part of Who We Are

Mac Macartney is an author and speaker on values-based leadership. Over a period of twenty years he was mentored by a group of Native Americans, which has deeply influenced his worldview and informs his work with everyone from corporates to communities. He is the founder of Embercombe, a social enterprise located in Devon that seeks to inspire people from all walks of life to contribute their gifts and energy towards a just, peaceful, and sustainable world. Joshua Malkin interviewed Mac about his work and his perspective on wellbeing, leadership and nature. This post is part of a series of blogs and videos we are sharing in the lead up to World Environment Day.

How will you Grow, Share and Care this World Environment Day?

We are all interconnected. That’s why it’s important to help each other; to offer support, advice and inspiration based on our own experiences. NOW has been running a competition in the lead up to World Environment Day, inviting people to share their own tips on the themes of 'Growing, Sharing and Caring', using the hash tag #GrowShareCare. We really appreciate the inspiring entries received so far, some of which are shared in this post, and we’d still love to hear from you! Also this week, we’ll be sharing a special series of blog posts and videos, featuring gardener Monty Don, Embercombe’s Mac Macartney, and Green Space Life Coaching’s Karen Liebenguth. So, watch this space for more inspiring content in the lead up to World Environment Day! Plus, for those based in Totnes, you’re welcome to join us at a Forest Festival that we’re co-hosting on Sunday 5th June.
