25/02/2017 - Landscape/Change Conference organised by Bath Spa University "Achieving Race Equality in Nature"
Amazing that almost all of the feedback listed me as the highlight of the day
"Really inspiring to hear someone so young galvanising such successful action within her peer group and working to influence the workings of much larger organisations. Mya-Rose is a very clear and eloquent speaker. She kept things simple and accessible. I hope she goes on to inspire many others and I wish her all the best with this important work." Dr Camilla Nelson, poet, researcher, publisher
"Mya-Rose is a really inspirational speaker. The research that went into her presentation was useful and thorough, perfect for communicating with audiences new to considering these complex issues. Her summary of the Race Equality in Nature Conference revealed the many ways in which social injustice is reproduced in engagements with nature, and suggested ways in which people can make positive changes. She also shared the joy she experiences in nature and her love of wildlife, which kept the audience enrapt." Dr Samantha Walton,
Senior Lecturer in English Literature, Bath Spa University
"Mya-Rose Craig is an astonishingly compelling advocate--both for the natural world itself and for the rights of all young people to engage equally with it. Her mission could not be more urgent, or more convincingly conveyed." Dr Sarah Hayden, Lecturer in English Literature at University of Southampton

  1. That's impressive... I'm not in your peer group but such a year-schedule inspires me to schedule my mindmap of tasks on to the coming months too.
    Succes and I hope you'll have lots of fun !-)


Thank you for posting a comment. Please can you make sure that it is positive and is about me or my blog and not about promoting you or your business. Thanks. Mya-Rose Craig
