In conversation with Jacques, Claire explores her growing desire to discover nature in the middle of what we have come to think about as its opposite: the city.
Given that about 3/4 of humanity will soon live in macro-cities, and given that these occupy only 4% of the world's surface, and given that most of the environmental damage humans cause is connected with these facts, we do need to explore and experiment with alternative ways of living in cities.
Claire's book Rewilding the Urban Soul is a perfect guide to discovering what it would take to heal our urban living bases and ourselves and to start experimenting.
