(Re)connecting With Nature Through The Power of Wild Words

(Re)connecting With Nature Through the Power of Wild Words
 Attenborough Nature Centre
18th November 2017 | 10am-3pm | FREE

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and Dr Rob Lambert will host a day exploring our lost connection with nature (particularly in modern urban environments) due to our busy, fast-paced technological lives. Hosted at the Attenborough Nature Centre, this day event will explore the value of ‘wild words’, writing and language in a wild setting. Through discussion, workshops and interactive sessions participants will unlock and share the power of language to reconnect minds and bodies with nature all around us.

Wild words, whether in the form of poetry, literature or spoken language have the power to inspire an emotional and enduring connection with the natural world. Accessible nature writing is inspiring and entertaining and can help us understand and engage with the wonders of nature. Words challenge us to view our surroundings from different perspectives. Connecting with nature is, after all, part of being human.

Activities will be suitable for a wide range of ages.
