Venue: Virtual

Event Description

It is increasingly recognised that engagement with science and conservation is greatly enhanced where that engagement takes place through the creative arts. Audiences exposed to scientific ideas through such pathways have been shown to demonstrate meaningful change in their understanding of topics and, where the topic has an environmental basis, their behaviour.

This panel discussion explores how partnerships between the creative arts, science and conservation are being used to increase awareness of birds and the landscapes within which they live.

The panel includes: Harriet Mead (SWLA President); Matt Howard (RPSB and Poet); Mike Toms (BTO and writer); Ben Woodhams (SWLA)
