Biophilia - How We Connect with Nature

What is Biophilia?

First described by psychologist and philosophiser Erich Fromm in the 1960s, Biophilia can be understood as the Love of Life or Living Systems. American Biologist Edward O. Wilson went further with the ‘Biophilia hypothesis’ in the mid-1980s. He argued that we don’t just love all things in the natural world. In fact, we are genetically connected to them. All humans have a deep, almost primitive, desire to connect with nature whenever possible. Perhaps this explains why we keep plants and flowers at home and in our office.

Our subconscious desire to be close to nature in our everyday lives continues even in the workplace! However, if companies either take away or never even implement such connections as plants, flowers or even fresh air, people will feel disconnected at work, and thus less productive.

The Benefits of Plants in the workplace

So how does Biophilia change the mindset in the workplace and benefit both the employers and employees? How can we practically introduce nature into the workplace, whether it’s planting, water, fresh air, or even the smell of fresh-cut grass, without unnecessarily spending money?
