We spend 90% of our life indoors. We have become The Indoor Generation and it is affecting our health and wellbeing. It’s time to let nature back into our homes.
We chose to build the project on the fact, that we spend 90% of our lives indoors. In other words, we have gone from being part of nature to being apart from nature. With this project we want to address the following serious facts:
• Indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor
• Living in damp and moldy homes increases the risk of asthma by 40%
• Lack of daylight makes 15% of us sad
• Daylight can boost your children’s learning abilities by up to 15%
