Why support this work?
The project will build a stronger awareness and connection to the surrounding environment and place. The act of taking time out in nature is proven to improve mental health, reduce anxiety, and increase happiness and sense of purpose.
The storyline and other materials in the book will advocate creating new habitats for wildlife and the importance of positive action against climate change. The book encourages the reader to visit the National Forest and help connect with nature that will support their health and well-being.
The book will work as an effective tool to reach those children who don't engage with the National Forest. 50 books will be donated to libraries at Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Staffordshire.
With the National Forest's Arts Grant support, we will be delivering workshops and bringing books to libraries.
We aim to:
Give space for families to interact and spend quality and creative time together.
Develop a new book set in the National Forest.
Give children new, nature-friendly heroes and raise awareness of the National Forest's biodiversity (mini beasts that live in the National Forest).
Provide stories that encourage children to connect to nature that will improve their health and well-being.
Boost participants' creativity and imagination through engaging storytelling and illustrations.
We will anticipate the following benefits:
An increase in the number of visitors to the National Forest.
A larger audience for our work and increased awareness of the forest and its unique qualities.
(Working with professional artists and experts is important as it can increase confidence and encourage participation in future art projects and visits to the National Forest.)
A greater number of children interested in reading about nature, bugs, and their local areas, resulting in requests for encyclopaedias and other books at libraries.
Improved health and well-being of workshop participants and book readers, as well as increased awareness and connection to their surrounding environment and place.
