Mark Cocker The Nature of Britain

Mon 23rd April 2018
3.00pm - 4.00pm
Stratford ArtsHouse

Environmental thought and politics have become parts of mainstream cultural life in Britain. From the flatlands of Norfolk to the tundra-like expanse of northern Scotland, award-winning writer on nature, Mark Cocker sets out on a personal quest through the British countryside to find out who has shaped the environment we live in today and who’s behind the bastions such as the National Trust or RSPB. He explores why our landscape looks as it does and asks why the British seem to love their countryside more than almost any other nation, yet they have come to live amid one of the most denatured landscapes on Earth?
