New Networks for Nature 


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.

2018 10th Anniversary Event

Nature Matters 2018:

Creating Connections

Tickets now on sale

Creating Connections will take place between 15-17 November at the Stamford Arts Centre.  In 2018, we shall look especially at ways in which social media can facilitate shared experiences; how new prose, poetry, music and work in the visual arts can change and enrich our responses to the natural world; what politicians can and cannot do to support conservation; and how our growing knowledge of the ecological needs of creatures such as seabirds can highlight the challenges ahead.

We hope you can join us.
