Communicating the Beauty of Nature

Sweet summertime...

As summer kicks into full swing, we have made a conscious effort to step away from our computer screen routines to reconnect with the natural environment that inspires our work. After all, communicating for sustainability and positive change can't be as impactful unless you get back in touch with the root cause of it all - Nature. 
What's New with Blue 
Blue Practice was on the ground at Sustainable Brands' "Activating Purpose" conference in San Diego earlier this month. From #EarthToParis to Biomimicry to CSR insights, this year's conference focused on moving beyond sustainability into a world driven by purpose. We were honored to share a space with so many change agents pushing for the next level of environmental and social progress in today's world. See you in Detroit next year!
Deepening Storytelling for Nature

bioGraphic, a newly launched multimedia magazine powered by San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences, is empowering sustainability solutions through creative, interactive and visually inspired nature-based stories. We are already tuned in and loved reading Remembering the Stories of Nature

Our friends at 8 Shields, a California-based Institute focused on leading a movement leveraging the use of technology with nature in mind, are driven by the influence of natural space. With decades of experience, founder Jon Young models what drives connections between people and the outdoors, which in turn informs a diverse set of programs and multimedia tools designed for all learning types. Targeting youth who on average get one hour of outdoor time a day, 8 Shield's mission to make nature an interactive - and integrated - part of our daily lives is both necessary and timely. Learn more
