The Human-Wildlife Connection Programme
In September 2023, we will be launching our Wild Minds Programme - an annual programme that will work with different focus groups and take them on a journey of self-development, conservation, community engagement and connection. Connection to themselves, each other and the planet.
For the first Wild Minds programme we will be working with a group of 3 young Londoners and 3 young Zimbabweans; all from disadvantaged backgrounds, and all with limited access to - and experience of - the wonders of the natural world. For the young Londoners, we are working alongside the amazing London mentoring organisation, Mentivity. Our ambassador, Joseph, will be mentoring the young Zimbaweans.
Initially, each group will take part in 3 weekends of activities in their respective countries, where they will learn skills like bushcraft, teambuilding and map reading, whilst also starting to build a connection with the natural world around them.
