University of Washington psychology professor Peter Kahn describes “environmental generational amnesia” as the idea that each generation perceives the environment into which it’s born, no matter how developed, urbanized or polluted, as the norm.

Kahn argues that more frequent and meaningful interactions with nature can enhance our connection to — and definition of — the natural world.
