Nature Connections Conference 2024

Description

MONDAY 24th-TUESDAY 25th JUNE 2024

The Museum of Making at Derby Silk Mill, Silk Mill Lane, Derby, DE1 3AF

The University of Derby’s Nature Connectedness Research Group invites you to save the date for the 6th Nature Connections Conference 2024.

We expect the event will sell out and highly recommend early registration.

After a few years of hibernation, we are thrilled to announce that the University of Derby's Nature Connections Conference will return in 2024 to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in nature connection to share and discuss the latest research, ideas, and applications in the field.

This listing covers the main conference sessions starting Monday 24th June. Additional sessions held on Tuesday 25th June 2024 at the University of Derby's Kedleston Road campus can be added separately.

Early Bird rate available until 20th April 2024.
