Jma newsletter spring 2018 cover detail

The Spring issue of our John Muir Award newsletter – with updates from the Trust’s main engagement initiative - has a celebratory theme running through it.

As the John Muir Award turned 21 in February, we look back at the journey from 1997 to 2018, including significant milestones, 21st Birthday celebrations at Dunbar, and testimonials from around the UK.

A range of new publications are featured, including our Record eBook (with introductory film!), and ‘A Values Perspective on the John Muir Award’. A new Framing Nature Toolkit from Common Cause - a guide to "how words can help wildlife" - is also highlighted. The Lake District National Park has renewed its John Muir Trust partnership, and achieved World Heritage status - a relationship which brings together Identity, Inspiration and Conservation.

There’ s an update on The Lost Words. Besides the book by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, there is now an exhibition, suite of resources and multiple Crowdfunder campaigns, all highlighted.

What young people think about, and do for nature, are explored with links to research, evaluation and activity - including ReRoute, #IWill, Scotland’s Year of Young People and Kick the Dust youth consultations.
