The Remarkable COP 26 and how to choose the best scenario
COP 26 was never going to solve the world’s problems on its own, but let’s not overlook the positive intentions and hard work put in by thousands of people and the many remarkable things that did happen. We still have time to choose the best rather than the worst scenarios and our efforts to build a world where nature and people thrive must keep going. From the way we travel to the food we eat; learn how to make choices every day that help secure a more sustainable future.
As Sir David Attenborough puts it:
"There can be no greater legacy than giving young people the tools they need to save our planet."
Inspiring the Next Generation of Eco Heroes
What our children learn and do now, will have an impact on children that have not yet been born. Read about how to inspire the next generation to be eco heroes and create the future they deserve. You’ll also find a wealth of resources and natural wonders for young people on the “Our Planet” website.
There’s also a lot we adults can learn from children when it comes to embracing things that make us happy and we're sharing some wellbeing lessons we could easily pick up from kids. No doubt, they are intuitively aware that a walk in the woods or a stroll by the beach on a sunny morning can awaken the innermost feelings of happiness and peace.

Our Affinity for Nature Runs Deep
The sounds, smells and sights associated with nature are our evolutionary “happy place” where we can rest and rejuvenate. According to biologist E. O. Wilson:
"There is an innate emotional affiliation with other living organisms that makes us calm and comfortable in nature."
Other scientists espouse a fascination with the beauty and mystery of the natural world that draws us in. Emotion scientists believe there is something else going on as well: awe. In an awed state heart rate and blood pressure drop and there is less concern for self, increased generosity, and more cooperation.
Our affinity toward nature runs deep and people around the world are adding their voice to call for urgent action to heal our relationship with nature. Join us and add your pledge for a new deal for people and nature with WWF - together we can make a big difference!
