Black Presence in Green Spaces: Black History Month
October 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Save for Later
Talk, panel discussion and short films
People of colour currently spend less time in nature in the UK than white people; therefore missing out on the pleasures and health benefits and are less involved in conserving and protecting green spaces.
There is a widely acknowledged under-representation of black leadership within the environmental sector.
People of colour are often connected to nature in countries of heritage but a disconnect occurs in the west. Our work has explored the many reasons why, including experiences of racism and disenfranchisement; being made to feel that we don’t belong in nature and the countryside.
Join Wild in the City for an exploration of our relationship with nature and reasons why black people are less connected in the UK
Venue: Diorama Arts Centre, 201 Drummond st, NW1 3FE
