There is considerable evidence to show that contact with nature brings great value to children and influences their future opportunities. Yet it is widely accepted that young people are more disconnected from nature than ever.
In 2011 took these thoughts and an outline concept to WWF-UK and was commissioned to create My True Nature – a creative conservation project to mark and celebrate WWF’s 50th anniversary.
Across the UK thousands of children and young people were invited to explore and express what they most loved about nature – through art, dance, poetry, music, film and photography. And we also worked very closely with ten selected schools and youth groups, to help them express their creative visions in more elaborate pieces.
In November 2011 My True Nature marked WWF’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Fifty artworks featured in a special WWF anniversary exhibition
