Getting Closer to the Natural World:

The EcoWild Project

Emily Malik

(Founding Director of EcoWild)

Wednesday April 5, 5.30-6.30

Newton Park Commons 133

 

Emily Malik has a background in conservation biology and a strong personal interest in deep ecology. She hopscotched between working in environmental and health spheres before realising that she wanted to bring both together to enable the green agenda to permeate our cultural evolution. In this short talk she will discuss her journey from biologist to director of a multidisciplinary, woodland-based community interest company. EcoWild delivers Woodland Mindfulness and Wellbeing courses, Woodland Wildlife Adventures and forest schools, science fairs, toddler groups, parties and respite days, retreats and seasonal celebrations in B&NES.

Emily holds a BSc in Biology from Bristol University, where she has also conducted pilot Research on the development of the Strongyloides sterocalis parasite in relation to host immune function in association with a rural Ugandan HIV clinic. She has worked as director of the Biashara Fair-Trade Cooperative; logistics manager and researcher for a Marine Conservation Research Project in southern Madagascar; project manager for the Tropical Health and Education Trust (London and Africa); and Community Support Services Coordinator for the Terrence Higgins Trust. In 2013, she founded the EcoWild Community Interest Company, of which she remains the director.

All Welcome!
