Get Out There! Conference
The beautiful setting of The Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre in Barnes was chosen for the launch of an evaluation report on the successful environmental conservation programme Get Out There! We held a conference on September 11th to highlight the work and share the model with other conservation groups throughout the capital.
Consultant Felicity Robison, who wrote the evaluation report, reported on her findings and Judy Ling Wong, CBE president of the Black Environment Network, gave an inspiring and interesting talk on the importance of reconnecting Children to Nature, Project Wild Thing and the new Sowing the Seeds initiative. Please see video clips below.
The day was a big success, with lots of positive feedback and opportunities for networking and idea sharing.
