Short Talk ‘Technobiophilia: Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age’ 19 April 2017, Bournemouth.

I’ve been invited to give a short talk about my new book Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age at a meeting of the Dorset Humanists. This is the first in a series of talks by members and there are two of us on the programme – Chris Street, who will be talking about Poetic Naturalism, and myself.

7.30pm, Wednesday 19th April 2017 at The Greenhouse Hotel, Bournemouth. More information.

The event is open to everyone and you don’t have to share Humanist views to come along and join the conversation.

Join digital wellbeing expert Sue Thomas, and a panel including a psychologist and an app developer, as we investigate the research and ideas behind the effects of technology and nature on our health. We will look at the effects of wired nature on our brains, study the benefits of a natural world experienced in digital form and find out how we deal with an overload of information.
