Building on their series of 5 other talks, Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt and William Mankelow (photographer) take The People’s Countryside Environmental Debate Podcast format in front of a live audience, either on stage or as an online event.
Their podcast can be accessed on a range of platforms, click on the link. https://linktr.ee/thepeoplescountryside
During 'Environmental Debate Live and Unscripted', they will discuss world-scale environmental issues, challenging societal and individual beliefs. Inspiring people to protect the countryside and natural environment around them.
Where possible they will have an invited guest with an environmental/ sustainability perspective, just as they often do on the podcast. Giving the audience and themselves tangible actions to take forward, assisting us all to be more sustainable in our life, and work.
The difference being with these live events, Stuart and William increase their impact by having an engaged audience. The audience takes part in the debate, as it's not about Stuart and William, or the guest, it's about the subject matter, and keeping the big issues in the public consciousness.
Each live event will aim, where possible, to connect everyone with solutions to the issues debated. To enhance the stage event, in due course, they will include an experiential drama and photographic components. These concepts are being developed, and will be introduced when complete.
Embedding the learning experientially, makes their work even more impactful! For the host organisation, Stuart and William will assist in the creation of a more engaged audience on environmental issues, who will feel motivated towards making their own lives more environmentally sustainable.
The overall aim is to change mindsets/aspirations and processes of the public, decision-makers and scientists by raising awareness of sustainable far-reaching initiatives. These may include influencing improvements towards the sustainability of events and venues.Views: 17 | Enquiries: 0
