Jamie Quince-Starkey from Down To Earth Project presents a series of talks bringing the important conversations around nature, our connection to nature and our own nature to the debate. These talks are about having real conversations with people who are doing interesting things, sharing their stories, their knowledge and their wisdom.
But this series of talks are not your average event. We want the audience involved as much as possible, that means you ask the questions on what you want to know.
Join us as we learn together.
How important is it for humans to have a relationship with nature and what are the benefits of spending our time outdoors?
In this month's talk we delve into nature and its effect on our mental state and wellbeing. We will talk about how nature can be used in a therapeutic manner, how we are bound to nature and what is meant by nature connectedness!
Our Guests for this talk include:
