Ecopsychology & Conservation Are Intrinsic To Wellbeing
Kay Haw, The Woodland Trust: Protection of our dwindling natural environment is paramount, but not just for its own benefit. We humans have integral links to our natural world and there is increasing evidence to show the significant benefits of nature to our health and wellbeing; physical and psychological. Concepts, perhaps once thought of as kooky and maybe even scoffed at, of the spiritual importance of nature to our lives are now being talked about even in mainstream media. The more we give the more we receive from nature – it is that simple. So we will look at the evidence and reasoning behind our need for nature, and actions you can take to help conserve and protect it.

As a former land surveyor, Kay witnessed first-hand the loss of nature from the UK as it was consistently bulldozed and marginalised. Determined not to be a cog in the destructive machine of ‘progress’ and gaining a profound connection with the planet, she swapped sides and swore to help protect the natural world.
In her role with the Woodland Trust she strives to conserve, share knowledge, inspire and connect people more deeply to trees and woods. As editor of the Trust’s Wood Wise publication, she strives to bring expert contributors together to help convey the importance and wonder of various key conservation topics and share best practice.
