Last Thursdays group meeting held at Warnham Nature reserve was presented By Clive Cobie, fellow woodsman, environmentalist story teller and all round good egg, Although technical issues presented a problem with the projector, Clive’s presentation was based on his recent schools woodland theatre project at a Primary school in Pulbrough, Backed up with a timelapse video of site preparation and the creation of the theatre area with his 360 digger, re turfing and tree planting the theatre area, The main aim of the project is to educate and encourage kids at a young age to get involved with learning about the great outdoors, the wider environment and the climatic issues we are facing today, by forming community groups and creating woodland theatres in areas of unused woodland by kind permission of local landowners close to their accessible primary school, I am sure with Clive’s enthusiasm and ability to tell a good story his project will be a success.
Clive read from text to help describe his vision of ‘engagement to move change’ and how we need to be positive in doing so. Finishing his talk with one of his own poems and a discussion.
