Stepping into Nature Conference 2022

On the 1st November, the Stepping into Nature team held a conference celebrate the project’s achievements, showcase the nature based wellbeing offer in Dorset and provide plenty of networking time with health, environment and community organisations.

The day was bustling with over 24 speakers representing a range of organisations across Dorset. Over 100  passionate, talented, and influential people attended with the common goal to improve the lives of people in Dorset by connecting them with nature, people and supportive services.

The day thoroughly enjoyable and we (Steph and Jules) would really like to thank everyone involved in the making the day so special. All the presentation slides are available below.

Don’t forget, if you’ve got an idea that you may need support with then take a look at the Nature, Art and Wellbeing Fund along with the other funding opportunities from Dorset Community Foundation, National Lottery Community Fund and Dorset Community and Culture Fund (information in the below slides).
