For me, like others who are fortunate enough to have unrestricted movement, one of the few positive outcomes of living in the midst of a global pandemic has been having more time to spend in nature. Last spring I began a series of daily walks around my local park which culminated in ‘Gränby Park’ an artistic project which I submitted as part of the 'Perspectives on Climate: Ecopsychology, Art and Narratives' course at CEMUS, Uppsala University. In this blogpost I write about the inspiration behind the piece and reflect on walking as way of connecting to nature.
