A TIME FOR COMMUNITY COLLABORATION
In an age of new environmental consciousness a new need for community networking & collaboration arose.
Technology had changed the concept of networking | it provided the tools, platforms & conduits, and instant accessibility to mass, targeted & global communications for all | it was a whole new ball game.
Timely in its arrival The Nature Principle & its Seven Predepts inspired the final stage of the journey Naturescape had unwittingly been on | harnessing community to lead the charge to preserve its own backyard | 'by the community for the community'.

THE NATURE PRINCIPLE
A MOMENT OF CLARITY CREATES THE FRAMEWORK
In the early days of Naturescape development, fellow nature disciple John Thompson suggested reading Richard Louv's 'The Nature Principle' | it was a moment of clarity from John, and a moment of enlightenment for me.
“The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.”
'The Nature Principle's "Seven Overlapping Precepts based on the Transformative Powers Of Nature' perfectly put into context all Naturescape hoped to do with its vision.
As Richard Louv clarified, we needed to once again "... not just live with nature but live in it".
It sparked the prospect that while technology had led us away from our natural path it could also be harnessed to draw us back to nature.
Conversely, it could bring nature home, to us.
Naturescape now had the framework for its vision & mission | how & where it could be applied | the scale of community-wide benefit it could produce | and the lost connections it could restore in everyday life | anywhere, everywhere, anytime.
The Nature Principle 'Seven Precepts' inspired the vision, determined the mission, and set the course for the next and penultimate leg of the journey | encircling the full community spectrum it laid the framework & model to launch Naturescape into its dreaming.
