"2nd interdisciplinary conference: Getting Connected to Nature"

Hosted by: College of Life and Natural Sciences, University of Derby

Location: University of Derby, Kedleston Road, Derby, DE22 1GB

Date: Wednesday 15 June 2016

The RSPB, Wildlife Trusts, National Trust and Historic England, led by the University of Derby and Natural England will be supporting NC2016, bringing together key players from research and provider communities with an interest in this area. The day will provide a forum for sharing and learning from the latest research and practice in nature connection, including latest findings from the pilot for a new national scale for nature connection. The event will help us to develop a common understanding of the role of nature connection, for example in  well-being and pro-environmental behaviour. We also plan to identify and agree priority actions that would help address key challenges for practice and research.

Keynote speaker:

  • Tony Juniper, Campaigner, writer, sustainability advisor and leading British environmentalist.
