About the event
"Nature education and nature connection are part of, and promoted through, the formal, non-formal, and informal education systems. Education is recognized as an important driving force for achieving conservation and sustainability. Education harnesses the opportunities for learning offered by nature, and inspires and helps re-establish deep connections between humans and nature. Curricula should integrate nature education that connects climate change, biodiversity and protected areas in a living systems holistic approach. "
We are thrilled to announce we will be hosting Mary Colwell, from Curlew Media who has been recognised as one of the most influential conservationists in the UK, to talk to us about her role in campaigning for the new GCSE in Natural History. We will also be hosting Erin Threllfall, an education leader, consultant and freelance writer, who works internationally to encourage schools to incorporate the SDGs into their curricula.
