NOWADAYS ON EARTH
Nowadays On Earth is a social enterprise advocating for contact with nature in the digital age. We provide resources, educational content, programmes, and workshops to close the gap between humans and nature while building intersectional urban gardening spaces and growing environmental justice. Through our programmes we support individuals to build nature connectedness, community resilience, and solidarity; develop the knowledge and tools to envision a world where all species flourish and catalyse ecosystem-based solutions to the challenges of our generation. Currently, we’re working on green equity and tech policy through our digital gardens campaign that connects urbanites with their local green spaces through innovative design technology that upholds the rights of people and nature.
