The Curse of Being the Greatest

We ate the bluefin tuna nearly to extinction. We can stop now.

“For the longest time, I thought sexual intercourse had a time limit.”

At 29 years old, Marie-Élaine Guay abandoned the world of advertising to become a horticulturist. This change—from performance to passion—did not happen of a sudden. Gently, it came to infuse…

What’s at the heart of our connection to nature?

Our Issue 01 asks the most fascinating adventurers, entrepreneurs and naturalists what lies at the heart of their connection to nature. Amongst other things we learn from the wildlife protector Monsieur Pageau that looking an animal right in the eye can change your destiny from the fly-fishing tribe Hooké that a group of like-minded friends can kick-start a movement.

How do we keep the outdoors wild?

In this new issue, we brought together stories and perspectives from creative ecologists, farmers, adventurers, and philosophers who all contribute to protecting nature on a daily basis. With their help, we broke down the concept of conservation into a range of inspiring and thought-provoking topics that all answer one fundamental question: how do we keep the outdoors wild?

What’s the value of nature?

In Issue 03, we are tackling the fascinating conundrum of nature’s worth. We are quantifying the work that nature does for us. We are looking at the real value of things when we take the loss of biodiversity into account. We are identifying what responsibilities come with making a living out of the wild. We are considering new outlooks on nature’s value, and the practices, business models, habitats, and lifestyles that they inspire. We are doing this with the help of our North American community of entrepreneurs, architects, philosophers, economists, farmers, photographers, and outdoor enthusiasts.

What can nature’s trajectories teach us?

In our new issue, we explore fascinating natural trajectories and life journeys.

We examine the movements of great migrations; the boundaries we draw over land, air and sea; the higher purposes we reach for when we run, bike or climb; the impacts of our ever-evolving culinary tastes on our planet’s biodiversity; the ways in which technologies rewire our brains; and how wilderness lies at the heart of so many of our personal trajectories.

What does our future with nature hold?

We have a natural tendency—individually and collectively—to project ourselves forward in time. On a daily basis, we make decisions for our future selves, and live by decisions made by previous generations. In Issue 05, we explore the myriad ways in which we are already building our future with nature.
