Pioneering a New Branch of Gerontology,

 

Eco Gerontology puts the Ecosystem back in Home.

 

'Eco' comes from the Ancient Greek word okios, meaning 'Home'. 

I view Home holistically, encompassing our whole bioregion—land, plants, towns, watersheds, and beyond, including all living beings

(birds, bees, rabbits...)


Aging in a Climate-Changing World

Eco Gerontology emphasizes the importance of healthy natural environments in supporting all domains of livability and advocates for nature-inspired and community-based solutions to our most pressing social and environmental challenges.

Empowering individuals and communities to harness the full health potential of their surroundings, I am an eco gerontologist dedicated to enhancing quality of life for people of all ages, current and future generations. 

I work with individuals, health professionals, carers, and communities to co-create and utilize supportive, accessible, and multifunctional outdoor spaces. With a focus on nature-inspired education, I am dedicated to providing fun and engaging opportunities that benefit both people and planet.

Be Inspired to share care outdoors! Listen to my conversation with
