    Hi Bethan

    It’s a field I’m particularly close to myself as well and identify as someone who is concerned for the environment, so will follow this thread with interest. Thanks for starting it!

    I was interested to read the outcome of the Future Wales Fellowship this week and will follow the fellows’ work with interest also: https://arts.wales/news-jobs-opportunities/future-wales-fellowship-announced

    Years ago I was involved in the RSA Arts & Ecology programme which did some interesting work in this field though I’m not sure how much was archived. One of the key books I read at the time was called Wild Reckoning – an anthology inspired by Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.

    My other half Tom runs the Common Cause Foundation from the office next door. They run public workshops: https://commoncausefoundation.org/training-learning/ which might be of interest?

    Lastly, my neighbour Fern Smith has been very active in this field over the years within Wales (she set up the Volcano Theatre Company). You can find out more about her work here: https://emergence-uk.org/
