A brief post to invite submissions to Nature Connections 2015, an interdisciplinary conference to examine routes to nature connectedness. This will take place at the University of Derby, Thursday, 26 March 2015. As the benefits of a connection to nature become more apparent the timing is right for a focussed event to bring together practitioners, researchers and beyond.
There will be several themes:
- Getting Connected to Nature – Moving beyond the barriers and identifying pathways to nature connection for both children and adults.
- Measuring and evaluating Nature Connection – evaluation practice and impact reporting.
- Nature Connection and wellbeing – Sharing the benefits of a connection to nature.
- Nature’s Beauty Discussion Panel – Reflecting on our relationship to nature through the arts.
More details on keynote speaker, submission formats, abstract deadline are available on the Nature Connections 2015 PDF.
