Voices for Nature November 2011, Stamford

The third meeting built on the successes of the earlier ones. It was based at the Arts Centre in Stamford and expanded to run into a second day at Helpston, John Clare’s birthplace. Clare’s spirit was one underlying theme, but this very well attended meeting again emphasized the sheer diversity of possible responses to the natural world beyond the narrowly econometric, with some outstanding musical and poetic contributions alongside the other presentations.

Not sure how to sum up @networks4nature conference. Overwhelming. Inspiring. Emotional. Mind blowing. Diversity. Uplifting.
