Protecting nature

Whether we think about it in these terms or not – we exist as a part of nature, not as a separate entity. If we protect nature – we protect our own future wellbeing and lifestyle.

To this end, EcoNetwork’s vision is for ‘ecologically sustainable communities existing in harmony with the natural environment.’
