As society changes so too does the environment around us. Urbanization has become a threat for natural environments. As our understanding of the benefits of nature engagement continues to evolve, it is important to understand what our relationship with nature looks like and how to foster it. With the looming challenge of urbanization it is time to consider alternatives to the outside nature that we are used to. Developments in digital nature and virtual reality may hold the key to helping individuals maintain a connection to nature.
