Joanne McCrum: visual artist, activist, Northern Ireland

I live in the north of Ireland and am hoping in the next years to develop a permanent native woodland and wooded pathway for everyone in the town.

This will be a collaboration strengthened by working with others around a shared vision. “We will never bring forth what we haven’t dared to dream or learnt to imagine” – Joanna Macy

I could not even be considering such a project now if I hadn’t been a part of this Ecoliteracy course – Cathy and Nikos’ huge generosity of spirit in sharing so much rich knowledge and insight is humbling and so inspiring to me.

Without this course, I believe I would still be stuck in global grief.

I am very grateful to you both, thank you.
