Nature Practitioner


Creating connections and sharing information and resources so that

we all flourish - just like the Wood-Wide Web 

A fundamental shift is needed in the way we all live and work in order to create a regenerative, fair, healthy, and loving world where the future of our planet and the vast interconnected web of life is protected, where justice and dignity prevail for all, where communities are healthy, happy and safe, and where workplaces make employees feel good about themselves and their work. 


Those of us using nature-based or nature-inspired approaches are all doing our bit to help promote this shift - we're helping people to live and work differently in order to create a regenerative future for people, organisations, communities and the natural environment. 


By connecting with each other, sharing with each other, supporting each other, and learning from each other, we can amplify our impact and make even more of a difference, both individually and collectively. The Nature Practitioner Network aims to bring together trainers, facilitators and coaches who are using nature-based or nature-inspired approaches so that we can become stronger and more influential in our work. 


We all know that trees in a woodland grow bigger, stronger, and healthier through sharing information and resources with each other via the Wood-Wide Web, and these events are an opportunity for us to do the same.  This is a new and growing network, so  gatherings are initially being held online, but ideally we will also come together face-to-face at least once a year. 

Dates for 2024:

Spring:     Friday 5th April, 10am-1pm

Summer:   Friday 5th July, 10am-1pm

Autumn:    Friday 4th October, 10am-1pm

Winter:      Friday 13th December 10am-1pm

Cost:   £20 (incl. vat) 

Who is it for?

These gatherings are open to any facilitators, trainers, or coaches who use nature-based or nature-inspired approaches to help individuals, teams, or organisations to learn and grow.

Whether you're just starting out on your journey as a nature practitioner, or are an experienced leader in this field, you'll be made very welcome.

There are a maximum of 16 places per event so book now to be sure of your place.

Our Next Gathering

Friday 5th April 10am-1pm, on Zoom


Our theme for this event will be Living Systems. We'll have time time and space to get to know each other, a facilitated discussion about how and why a living systems approach is so important in our work, plus a workshop on using Cards For Life to explore and understand systems. Afterwards, for those who would like to stick around a bit longer, you can bring your lunch or grab a cup of tea and stay online for informal conversation and networking.

Workshop: Cards for Life - Seeing systems with Tom Mansfield 


In this session we will practice observing life's dynamics using the Cards for Life deck with creator Tom Mansfield. As we develop this perception of living systems we can gain new insights and inspirations for more connected ways of being and doing in the world.

Cards for Life is a set of key concepts that helps shift our focus from separate objects to relationships between self and world, human and nature. This regenerative vocabulary provides a shared language so people can define regeneration for themselves in their particular situation, sector and context. Cards for Life is both a personal guidance system and a collective sense making tool. Whether coaching individuals and teams in their regenerative purpose or empowering community led visions and strategies, they help to bring life's Dynamics into new ways of Being and Doing. Cards for Life are being used by teams, coaches, consultants, designers, educators and facilitators of all kinds across a range of sectors throughout the world. 

"The most important task of this moment is to generate a base of people who are eager to practice perceiving the complexity and interdependency in every aspect of our lives."  Nora Bateson
