New guidance to support more inclusive multi-sensory experiences in nature launched today.
Produced in collaboration with VocalEyes, the RSPB and Andy Shipley as part of our “Vocalising Nature Sense: Nature Narratives” project, this work has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council Impact Acceleration Account.
During the project, we co-designed and delivered tailored visual awareness and audio description training workshops at four contrasting case study sites around the country: Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, Sherwood Forest, Durlston Country Park, and Sheffield Park Gardens.
The guidance aims to support other natural heritage sites to promote inclusive multisensory nature experiences amongst people with sight impairment, whilst also raising awareness of these types of settings as places for everyone.
