STATEMENT OF ART:
Our relationship with nature is constantly evolving to maintain human civilization. And yet, nature is being destroyed in the process of urbanization. The environmental movement, which promotes conservation areas for preservation purposes, has ironically increased the demand for tourism in these areas and thus accelerated the speed of environmental destruction. Nevertheless, a sense of connection with nature is indispensable for emotional balance. Japanese Zen Buddhism, for example, encourages deep meditation in order to achieve a sense of being at one with nature. Distancing ourselves from the technologies of modern life and evoking the beauty of nature can help us slow down the pace of daily life. The sounds of singing birds, buzzing insects, swaying leaves, and trickling water in a beautiful forest implicitly imprint the beauty of Nature in our minds. When we are emotionally stressed, recalling the beauty of nature can the help us recover a sense of well-being. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a concept, a method, and an interface, Sustainable Interaction with Ecosystems, by which we can achieve a feeling of belonging to nature without causing environmental destruction and in which human and nature can coexist.

This study is not intended to propose a solution to any one single problem. Rather, it proposes a new view of Human Computer Biosphere Interaction (HCBI) based design and interfaces to support our future society in a multidisciplinary approach.
