Valuing Urban Nature

12:00 – 16:00, Tue 7 November 2017

HOME, Manchester
Tony Wilson Place
M15 4FN

Communities, artists, activists, researchers, ecological organisations and policy makers are invited to join us for an afternoon exploring the values of urban nature, for wellbeing, ageing and biodiversity.

Free screening of the award winning 2015 social and environmental documentary ‘Tomorrow’ (Demain) by Cyril Dion and Melanie Laurent will be followed by an open discussion and sharing of ideas between community campaigners, ecological artists, designers and writers from Manchester School of Art, Manchester Met, MICRA and University of Manchester.

We invite people to come and watch an uplifting documentary and share your local solutions for protecting and engaging with Manchester and Greater Manchester’s green and blue spaces.

Programmed in conjunction with the research project GHIA: Green Infrastructure and the Health and Wellbeing Influences on an Ageing Population (funded by NERC/ESRC/AHRC through the Valuing Nature Network).
Part of the ESRC Festival 2017, and RAH! Research in Arts & Humanities at Manchester Met.
