The world is made up of diverse narratives that construct our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. These narratives come with a set of ideas and experiences which are reflected in the words we use. This means that humans have unique understandings of “Nature”, because our interactions and emotional bonds with the rest of the natural world shape the meaning each of us give to “Nature”. When it comes to defending and protecting Earth’s web of life, it is essential that you, me, all of us reflect upon the words we use and what narrative those words promote.
