Aviva Reed presents at diverse events, bringing insights of ecology to wide audiences through creating immersive experiences.

I truly believe that sitting within ecological stories and knowledge and sharing the processes that shape the world is crucial to a thriving future for all. I am passionate to make ecological knowledge accessible as a tool for thinking when designing and teaching. Sitting within ecological stories brings context, calm and wonder to every situation.
