Many people yearn for real leadership and change, but they are tired of change initiatives which so often fail to deliver, leaving leaders and teams isolated, demotivated and lost. In this workshop held over two consecutive half-days Philip Goodwin and Tony Page will help you rediscover your influence as a leader, reconnecting your passion for nature conservation with the purpose of your organisation and connecting you with like-minded others.
Who is this for?
Philip Goodwin and Tony Page are authors of “from Hippos to Gazelles: how leaders create leaders”. They are known for bringing storytelling to leaders as a tool to create purpose and passion that leads to change that people believe in. See full programme for more information.

Finding our place: reconnecting with nature in a time of uncertainty
|Location:||Battleby nr. Perth|
Climate change poses the greatest global challenge of the modern age. How will nature conservation respond and adapt? Can we move from strong ecological knowledge and understanding to ecological ‘being’, where a new interconnected environmental ethic takes its place equally alongside science and technology. Join key thinkers in nature conservation, human ecology and environmental education to explore how our relationship with nature may be at the core of our capacity to address climate change.
Organiser: SNH with VINE (Values in Nature and Environment) and the SpeyGrian Educational Trust.
David Orr (Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics and Oberlin College, Ohio)
Alastair MacIntosh (Visiting Professor, Centre for Human Ecology, University of Strathclyde)

VINE conservation task 22 June 2016 New Forest
|Date:||22.06.2016 - 22.03.2016|
Following on from the success of our VINE conservation task on Arnside Knott back in the Autumn, we’re delighted to invite you to a VINE task this summer, this time in the New Forest on Wednesday 22 June 2016, 10am – 3pm
The conservation task will be led by Catherine Chatters of Hampshire Wildlife Trust, and will be Himalayan balsam pulling on the Cadnam River. There will be plenty of opportunity to discuss VINE related matters, and we invite you to suggest topics – the role of invasive non-native species springs to mind! However, discussions will be entirely informal and according to peoples interests on the day.
Booking will be necessary nearer the time, but it would be useful for Catherine to know possible numbers, so please let us know if you think you might make it and would like to receive further booking information from VINE in due course.
