I am flying a kite for a new project – a residential institute running a suite of Environment-related Masters programmes. The idea is in time for this to provide the foundation for a wide-ranging research programme on human ecology from a broadly Eliasian standpoint. The project is slightly ‘leftfield’ in that it centres on a self-sufficient small holding with extra-curricula activities including field botany and bushcraft.If this sounds interesting I would be very grateful if you would have a look a the project website and pass on the link to any students, friends or colleagues who might be interested. I am aiming to get about 500 expressions of interest before developing a more narrowly focused business plan with which to approach the university. The website is not a blueprint but a vehicle for market research. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who would like to get involved.
Thanks and best wishes
