Forward to Nature

Join us

Virtual worlds, printed food, living cities, wild robots – we’re so surrounded by technology that it’s becoming our next nature. How can we live in harmony with it? The Next Nature Network is a 21st century nature organization that wants to go forward – not back – to nature.

Take the new Adidas concept shoe, crafted with recycled materials gathered from the oceans.
