The HINTS lab (www.hintslab.org
) at the university of Washington is
working on a research project called a Nature Language.
The purpose of the project is to collect personal nature stories that
help us better understand the many ways people relate to and interact
with the natural world.
We have developed a website (www.naturelanguage.com
) where people can
visit and share a story about their interaction(s) with nature. These
stories will be analyzed as qualitative data if the user agrees to it. If the user does not want their story to be included in research, they can also just share a story for fun.
There is also a community area where people can read and comment on
other people's posted nature stories.
We would like to invite people to visit the website, read about people's
nature interactions, and share a story if inclined to do so.
Again, the website is www.naturelanguage.com
