Henrik Hallgren is an eco-activist, storyteller and educator in ecopsychology. As such, he roams in the borderlands between politics, spirituality, ecology, poetry, and philosophy. In all his work, Henrik proceeds from the starting point and the conviction that climate change and other ecological crises is a symptom of a broader “culture of disconnection” and that we as a society has to involve in a deep cultural therapy to heal the relationship between humans and the rest of nature. Henrik is founder of Lodyn – a non-governmental organization and think tank engaged in ecopsychology, nature awareness and activism. He is author of several books and has an academic background in archaeology, social anthropology and museology.
