We’ve lost touch with nature. This disconnect hurts our health, dulls our spirit, and threatens our future. Narrated by Liam Neeson, Love Thy Nature is a cinematic journey through the beauty and intimacy of our relationship with the natural world. And it shows that a renewed connection with nature is key not only to our wellbeing, but also to solving our climate and environmental crises.
Enjoy the film and learn how you can love nature through programs at IC.

Chris Sinton, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Sciences, is a co-author on a web-based teaching module on Water, Agriculture, and Sustainability. The five units in the module provide “a framework for students to learn about how people interact with water, peer into our water future, and consider ways we might foster more sustainability in water management.” This is one of several modules and classes that are part of the NSF-supported Interdisciplinary Teaching about Earth for a Sustainable Future (InTeGrate) program. The module is available for public use at http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/water_sustainability/index.html.
