Our editors are constantly roaming the planet and its mediasphere in search for stories, projects and observations that help us understand the implications of the up-and-coming next nature on our everyday lives.
We welcome your next nature observations, links and stories for editorial consideration. Occasionally we also publish originally written essays.
Before sending us your article or link tip, here are some basic do’s and don’ts to consider first. For the complete guidelines, please click here.
Tell us why the link is important or peculiar for next nature explorers. Adding a short description we can copy/paste along with the link increases the chances of your link being posted. Please don’t suggest “naked” links without a description.
We are a highly visual blog and consider text as an addition to the image, rather than the other way around. Yes, it does increase the chances of being featured when you include a good visual with your story. Images we use are at least 530 pixels wide and 150 kb max.
Consider how your observation adds to the understanding of next nature. Our concept of ‘nature’ is somewhat different than the established view, so please be concise when you use the N word.
This provides us with a context in which the link should be considered, which is handy not only for us, but also for our readers.
If you are inspired by next nature thinking and are actively creating work in response to it: Great, we like that. However, please understand that we cannot feature your work on the site if it hasn’t matured. In general we advise you to finish your work before you start promoting it. That is better for everyone.
A story about a boy that invented a new solar panel made from a human hair isn’t very likely to be featured. We consider Nextnature.net a science faction, rather than a science fiction blog. Adding trustworthy references increases the chances of your story being featured.
Don’t waste your time. Email press releases without a linkable URL are trashed immediately. Only hand-crafted submissions from real humans get our attention.
Read it? Good. Now submit your story to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
