The Sustainable Land Project

How can humans and nature co-exist?

The Sustainable Land Project is a free event featuring a series of talks from local people who have a close relationship to the land they work with. Our passionate speakers will discuss their experience of working harmoniously with the land and the benefits that they achieve as a result.

We’ve asked our speakers to focus on the themes of wellness and sustainability and how these apply in their every day work, as well as the initiatives they are focussing on to sustain their land for future generations.
