Caught by the River

Nature, Post Brexit

20th July 2016


“We need – urgently need, more than ever before in our lifetimes – progressive voices to speak up for the importance of nature in Britain’s future. Should UK’s grassland, hedges, woodlands or rivers, like the Whanganui River on North Island in New Zealand, be entitled to a legal identity? Other than rewilding, what other attitudes to land management can recognise the autonomy of nature? How can we shift the human horizon, both culturally and legally, to see beyond the immediate needs of each generation?”

Robert Macfarlane and Adrian Cooper (Little Toller) have begun a conversation about nature in post Brexit Britain. Please add your voice and your ideas to their new forum, Uprooted..
