When a group of liberal arts students embark on a university assignment about the natural environment, no one could have quite prepared them for the bewildering array of questions and provocations to confront them in their task. What starts out as an earnest attempt to understand nature in the modern world, turns into a philosophical and practical tangle that only a food trans-disciplinary education can provide. Can anyone save the day and actually start to value 'nature'? And if they can't, then what's stopping them?
The Valuing Nature programme, led by Dr Rob Fish, will soon be finalising the book. So keep your eye out for more information.
