The Belonging Volume takes a planetary perspective to reflect on the significance of our existence and that of the intricate network of ecosystems we inhabit. It explores how intimate knowledge of nature can enable us to feel at home outdoors, and how finding wonder in our everyday lives can profoundly impact our worldview. It listens to the voices of the younger generation and ruminates on the concept of intergenerational equity, and it hears stories of collective action to tackle some of today’s most pressing issues. It inspires us to humbly step back from our anthropogenic view on the world so we may find belonging in nature and come home to ourselves.

Raised by the Forest
Saga Mariah Sandberg grew up roaming the forests surrounding her family’s farm in Sweden. Her curious nature as a child is largely responsible for the remarkable works of art she produces today: authentic, beguiling, captivating beautifully curated celebrations of Sweden’s natural systems.
The Swedish love for nature runs deep. Spending time outdoors is both culturally and personally important to many, enabling people to stay grounded and rooted in themselves. Nature is valued as a place to feel restored, reconnected and "bara vara" (just be) – a place to find "ro för själ och sinne" (calm for the mind and soul).
