THE GREAT OUTDOORS: encounters with nature
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. Albert Einstein
Russell Foster, a leading ophthalmologist, points out: “From the year 1800 to 2000, we’ve moved from 90% of people working outside to less than 20%. In a very short space of time, we’ve gone from being an outdoor species to spending most of our time in dim, dark caves.”
Prepare a 5-7 minute story about you and the great outdoors. We aren't interested in hearing about beautiful sunsets and breathing-taking mountaintop views.
Conflict is the engine that drives any story.
Tell us about the sunset that was covered by clouds; the mountaintop you didn't reach; the mud your tires got stuck in; the bee sting that almost killed you; the wind that swept the 100 euros out of your hand.
Share with us your personal: humble-human-in-the-great-outdoors story
