What role can literature play in engaging us with the natural world and raising awareness of the devastating effects of the climate crisis? How can spending time in the wild improve our mental and physical well-being? Why has nature writing traditionally been dominated by male voices? And what can we do as individuals to protect our beautiful, wild planet?

Samantha Walton (Bath Spa University) talks to Sara Maitland (Gossip from the Forest; How to be Alone), Lia Leendertz (The Almanac series), and Zakiya Mckenzie (writer-in-residence for the Forestry Commission, pictured) in what is sure to be an illuminating and inspiring conversation.
