Mendel, Schmitt, Hamid, Neufeld & Wright. (2022, in progress)

Across multiple studies, we asked a lot of people the question, "what would the world be like if humans had a sustainable and harmonious relationship with the rest of nature?"

More than half of participants mentioned these themes:
  • A world free of pollution (60%)
  • Respect for other species (52%)
  • Renewable energy (52%)
