Hi everyone,
Now that the PhD dissertation is complete, the focus has been on:
    1. Disseminating writings and research snippets from the dissertation;
    2. Writing up new pieces (for both scientific and general audiences) based on the research done; and
    3. Applying and further testing key concepts related to meaningful experience and nature connection in the field.
This update provides an overview of some of the steps taken in achieving these aims.
Warm regards,
Matthew Zylstra
