Workpackage 2 Advisory Group

Dr Jo Birch

We thanked everyone who has joined the group and welcomed visitors Hannah Roberts and Anna Cronin de Chavez from the Born in Bradford.  After introductions, we identified skills, interests and questions that everyone brings to the project and noted what everyone would like to get from involvement in the group.

Clare Rishbeth and I presented a short visual story highlighting our literature readings around barriers people experience in connecting with nature.  We finished by sharing ideas about recruitment for the upcoming interviews and planning to meet again in June.  It was excellent that a number of the group were able to go afterwards to the Health in Place seminar with Catherine Ward-Thompson.
