Outreach & Awareness

Overview

Stories are powerful. Stories bring about change. We use the power of storytelling via films, education programmes, art, design and of course, the written word. We hope to not just inform the public, but also evoke wonder and empathy toward the species and habitats that we share this beautiful planet with. This is a vital part of The Habitats Trust’s strategy in communicating conservation and science to a discerning audience. In an age that is fatigued with information, it's a good idea for us to think about what is truly important.

The last four years have been a journey of learning and experimentation for us to find that fine line and walk it with collaborators we trust. Films, stories and writing can be powerful tools, and the people who bring them to the public become their eyes and ears to a world they might not have had access to or paid attention to.

We also aim to take much of our conversations offline, in an effort to break away from one-sided communication, and to encourage knowledge-sharing. Scrolling through this site or social media, watching our videos is just one part of it all. Let's also talk, meet, swap ideas. Let's be present and engage.

This way, outreach becomes a vehicle for empathy, understanding, busting misinformation and rekindling a powerful wonder for nature.
