New Networks for Nature


18 May 2022 - Online Event with NNN Presenters

The Place of Birds: Nature Writers on Birds and Our Love of Place

Michael J. Warren, Jeremy Mynott, Mary Colwell

Three New Networks for Nature members are in conversation for a Birkbeck College (University of London) Arts Week on the subject of birds and place. Steering group member and Birkbeck College honorary fellow Michael J. Warren, New Networks chair, Mary Colwell, and New Networks co-founder and trustee, Jeremy Mynott, will read from their books and discuss how birds have long played a profound role in affecting and shaping our shared cultural senses of places.

We are a broad alliance of creators, including poets, authors, scientists, film makers, visual artists, environmentalists, musicians and composers, whose work draws strongly on the natural environment.

Our annual meetings grew out of dissatisfaction with the low political priority placed upon nature in the UK. Today our wildlife and landscapes are so often evaluated exclusively in economic or scientific terms when, in fact, they are a resource at the very heart of human creativity. The natural world is central to the nation’s cultural life.  

New Networks for Nature wishes to reflect these truths and celebrate them.

A great big thank you!

Our thanks to all presenters, attendees and organisers for making Nature Matters 2021 such a wonderful success. Photographs are now on the Event Page and a report will follow shortly.
