According to a 2008 report released by the World Health Organization, 2007 was the first year in which more people lived in urban areas than in rural ones. However, regardless of urban development, human brain and neurological system have programmed us to seek a connection to natural environments. Our bodies were designed to move, for walking, rather than sitting. Walking offers the opportunity to experience space gradually and through our whole bodies, while nature can provide us with a haven of freedom. If we combine nature activities with another age-old and basic need, the thirst for good stories, we get a treasure trove of opportunities. Stories, which strengthen relationships and build communities, have the power to connect people and help us feel connected to nature.
