Black Nature Narratives
Black Nature Narratives offers black perspectives on issues relating to the natural world and our relationship with nature. Hosted by Nature Allied Psychotherapist and Naturalist, Beth Collier.
No Blacks, No Dogs, No Fishing
Beth Collier, WitC Director, participated in and contributed original research to Tim Pottage’s documentary film ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Fishing’.
This is Tim’s first documentary and looks at why more people of colour in the UK do not go fishing or utilise the natural world as much as the general population. The narration is partly based upon ‘Black Absence in Green Spaces’ by Beth Collier.
We help people make nature a friend rather than being a stranger
One of our key aims as a therapeutic organisation is to help people develop positive relationships in and with nature, supporting human interaction in our social worlds but also improving our connection to nature. In terms of maximising the benefit of connection, there is a triad; ourselves, others and nature. It is important for our wellbeing to have good relationships with others, but it is really powerful if we also have a good relationship with nature and can enjoy relationships with other people whilst being in nature.
