Guest Lecture at James Cook University, Singapore. ‘Living well with nature in a wired world’ 18 May 2017

I’m excited to be invited as a Visiting Scholar this May at James Cook University, Singapore. As part of my work there I will present a public lecture on Thursday, 7pm 18 May 2017. If you’re in Singapore then and would like to come along, please follow the link below to the University website.

Living well with nature in a wired world: an introduction to technobiophilia
Do you worry that wired life is taking you away from nature? You may be surprised to learn that you could be getting your daily dose of the natural world through your screensaver, or in virtual reality, or simply by ‘liking’ pictures of sunsets on Facebook. This talk explains the concept of biophilia, the deep genetic memory of our early evolution in the ancient wild, and introduces the concept of technobiophilia. Dr Thomas explains how our ancestral attraction to nature can soothe our connected lives and help us to feel better without logging off.

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.

I announced a while ago that I was working on a new book, and now it’s ready. The title has evolved to ‘Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age‘.

This is the first time I’ve written and created a Kindle book from scratch, and it has been a very enjoyable experience. I plan to do more!

I hope you like this short excerpt, which includes a few practical tips to try for yourself. You’re also warmly invited to join the conversation in the Digital Wellbeing Facebook Group
