In our world of increasingly fast paced, screen-based communications do we forget that the natural world is always right there on our doorsteps? How as communicators can we inspire people to take notice and connect to the physical presence of nature? What do we want people to notice and why? How can we translate the visceral experience of nature so people take notice…and take action?
Join Avon Wildlife Trust for a creative, interactive session including a short outdoor nature experience and open space discussion.
Explore what inspires/confuses/interests/dumbfounds us about nature
Discuss whether it is important to communicate these things and why
Discover ways that communicators can offer a ‘way in’ to nature experience
