Passion | THE NATURE BAR

THE NATURE BAR

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 the Voice For Nature Collective and the Natural History Museum.

The Nature Bar hosted a group of extraordinary individuals: policy makers, environmentalists, scientists, journalists, storytellers, and artists to speak on behalf of Nature within The New York Times Climate Hub in Glasgow, during COP26.

Our programming focused on personal and tangible perspectives that were grounded in knowledgeable and honest dialogues. The perfect recipe to leave you feeling recharged, challenged, entertained, and personally empowered to give Nature a voice.

A few of the many highlights…


 

“… 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

Thank you to our guests and dear friends for joining us in being a Voice for Nature.
