“Rooted” is a documentary series that explores the story of 3 different people whose identities have been shaped by their particular connection with nature.

Their stories are intended to exemplify how the natural environment plays a meaningful role to our identity, and help reimagine the current conception of how society can engage with nature, as a way of fostering protective environmental behaviours.

Episode 3: Nature to create Community

In this episode, alongside Justine, we will explore how nature and sharing knowledge about it, particularly foraging, can be the best common ground we could find to integrate people in a community.
