Come along to this discussion and hear from representatives from Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, campaigners, youth and community groups. The event will focus on how the coronavirus pandemic has underlined the need for nature in our lives like never before. We have sought access to it, found spiritual renewal in dark times in it and voraciously read nature-writing. Nottingham has contemplated new directions for nature conservation in the county, including the reintroductions of species such as beavers to renew the local landscape and habitat.
Yet, at the same time, nature remains under constant threat and during the pandemic instances of destruction, vandalism, fires and litter have plagued local nature reserves and green spaces. In an age of coronavirus, some would say we’ve risked loving nature to death. This event will explore how post-pandemic nature must be about renewal and rebirth, with people taking action to protect it.
The discussion will be chaired by Dr Rob Lambert.
