Solastalgia: the loss of our Sense of Place.

Solastalgia: the loss of our Sense of Place.

Solastalgia is a term coined by a Professor of Sustainability, Glenn Albrecht, at Newcastle University in Australia. It is often described as a feeling of “homesickness” while still at home. Seemingly, more researchers are noticing the effects of this lost connection to place. Bill Mollison was quoted once by saying, “We are only truly secure when we can look outside of our kitchen window and see food growing, and our friends working nearby.” I believe it is this sense of security that we associate so much with the feeling of home. Through working and learning more about our surrounding environment, we can rebuild this connection to home, wherever we are.
