Since 2009, New Networks for Nature have organised a series of events designed to explore new perspectives in our cultural and creative responses to birds, nature and wildlife, and to challenge certain narrowly defined but prevailing views on the environment. The meetings draw together a wide cross-section of individuals and institutions, whose professional work and private lives draw inspiration from the natural world.


Our next annual event, Nature Matters 2016: In Touch with the Wild, will take place in Cambridge, in association with the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, on 22–24 September 2016. We will then return to Stamford in November 2017.


More details will be anounced when we open bookings.
Places are limited and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to receive an announcement as soon as tickets are available please join our mailing list.
