The Nature Connections conferences are now into their third year and this years event takes place at the University of Derby, Tuesday 27 June 2017. The headline theme this year is, ‘Beyond Contact with Nature to Connection’.
Once again the day is about bringing together people from research and practitioner communities and beyond. The day will provide a forum for sharing and learning from the latest research and practice around the topic of nature connection. The conference will be focussed around the core themes of moving beyond contact with nature to connection; nature connection outcomes across the lifespan; enabling nature connection; and linking nature connection research and practice. Keynote speakers planned include Natural England Chief Executive, James Cross and the award-winning author, naturalist and environmental tutor, Mark Cocker.
The draft programme is now available (NCx2017 Draft Programme) and the conference web site is available and open for bookings: http://www.derby.ac.uk/enterprisecentre/events/nature-connections/
