Why do we adorn our screens with pictures of forests, waterfalls, animals and beaches? Why are there so many nature metaphors in the language of the internet? The answer lies in biophilia, the innate human attraction to life and life-like processes. Sue Thomas believes that nature can soothe our connected minds and offer unexpected benefits – an improved attention span, a rested mind, and enhanced creativity. So there’s no need to choose between technology and well-being – we can have both! This talk is about the best way to make our digital lives integrated, healthy, and mindful.

This month we have worked with the Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival, so this is definitely not one to miss. Also, as an extra special treat we have brownie cake to celebrate our one year anniversary – what a great success Cafe Scientfique has been!
Doors open at the wonderful Cafe Boscanova, Boscombe at 6:30pm and Sue Thomas will begin her fascinating talk on Technobiophilia at 7:30pm-9pm. There is no need to register for this event, so just simply come along! There is also some excellent food available (and chocolate brownie – if I hadn’t already mentioned).
The Cafe Scientifique team look forward to seeing you there!
