Urbanization and digitalization have contributed to a physical and psychological disconnect between people and nature, which has detrimental consequences for the well-being of humans and the environment. Advancements in virtual technologies have introduced new ways of experiencing nature. In this talk, I will share findings from a series of studies that examined nature in Virtual Reality (VR) as an intervention for promoting well-being, as an urban planning and design tool, and as a transformative experience that can impact our attitudes towards real nature in the physical world.
