LIFE OUTDOORS: THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING OUTSIDE AND ENGAGING WITH NATURE

     Jun 30, 2015

An experience Kenny Ausubel would like the humanity to have.

For the founder of Bioneers, most people have a Natural Deficit Disorder. See on the video above how having a teacher as father gifted him with a profound experience of the natural world.

 

One morning, Kenny Ausubel woke up paralyzed on the left side of his body. He went to several doctors but not one of them could diagnose the cause of his sudden paralysis. This prompted him to turn to alternative forms of medicine, and he learnt the reason was a massive exposure to dioxin, a toxic chemical compound.

 

From this experience, Ausubel developed an interest in environmental solutions. In 1990, he founded Bioneers with his wife, Nina Simons. To find more about him, click here.
