‘Nature as a partner – changing attitudes to nature and landscape’ with Matthijs Schouten
Burren in Bloom 2022 will host an online talk on the evening of Thursday 19th of May on the topic of ‘Nature as a partner – changing attitudes to nature and landscape’ with Matthijs Schouten
Matthijs Schouten came to Ireland to study peatlands in 1978. Shocked by the commercial development on the Irish bogs, he returned home and campaigned to raise money to buy and save three of them. He also helped prompt the setting-up of the Irish Peatland Conservation Council. Matthijs has studied biology, Celtic language and Literature, Religious Sciences and Oriental philosophy. He has been working at Staatsbosheer since 1992 as an ecologist and philosopher and at UCC as Adjunct Professor in Ecology.
