When we’re willing to slow down, listen and learn, Nature reveals all. She not only provides us with the questions but she also shows us the answers.
So it was with this deep appreciation and respect for the natural world that The Nature Bar was born as a collaboration between Voice For Nature and the Natural History Museum.
The Nature Bar is an experience that hosts extraordinary individuals: policy makers, environmentalists, scientists, journalists, storytellers, and artists to speak on behalf of Nature. The Nature Bar was first held within The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow, during COP26. The Nature Bar will next take place during London Climate Week, within The New York Times Climate Forward London.
Our programming is focused on personal and tangible perspectives, grounded in knowledgeable and honest dialogues. The perfect recipe to leave you feeling recharged, challenged, entertained, and personally empowered to give Nature a voice.
The Nature Bar returns for London Climate Week, 2022.
A few of the many highlights from Glasgow 2021…
“… Today I bring an ocean world view, as a gift from indigenous people to the world… Our struggle about relationship is also the struggle of the human nature, of dominion — to dominate Nature, rather than learning to live.”
— Maureen Penjueli, co-ordinator of the Pacific Network on Globalisation, at the Rights of Nature Session.
“… Isn’t that the real goal; to find our place within the natural systems that make our existence possible; to treat the ocean, to treat all of the creatures, land and sea, with a kind of dignity and respect. As if — as if our lives depend on them, because they do.”
— Dr. Sylvia Earle, Her Deepness on opening night
