A new Vocational Pathway
Emerging careers for nature based practitioners
At Natural Academy we know that if we are going to take positive action for people and nature we need to think and act with this truth ‘There is only One Health’. This is a way of seeing that the health of our self, is related to our communities health and the health of the environment. If we want to make a difference to this one health we need to always consider the personal, social and ecological process as woven together and interdependent in any holistic health conversation.
This changes things in the current health and environmental sector. Gone are silos of focus and what arises is the reality of interconnection. Thus our mission to bring health and nature sector together by applying our NatureWell approach across the UK so that health outcomes for people and for nature are created together. So far we have worked with 20 organisations including 7 NHS trusts and 5 Wildlife trusts and we continue to develop our trainings and service delivery. Recently we ran a training at Marlborough house in Swindon with the CAMHs team there, who all work with young peoples mental health. We are now in the process of linking up this work with other teams we have trained and look forward to continuing to support these teams to develop nature based services for young people.
Attached is a short overview of the training at Marlborough House.
