Jay Griffiths Lecture 19th February 2008

The Worlds Monument Fund Britain are hosting a lecture at the Royal Geographical Society in London on 19th February next year.

We are very excited to have the renowned writer Jay Griffiths speaking for us about her recent book 'Wild: An Elemental Journey'. The book focuses on the time she spent living with indigenous societies across the globe and describes the intimate relationships they have with the natural environment. The book also touches upon how the wilderness is interpreted by differing cultures and religions, and argues that wild land is intrinsic to the health of the human mind
