Elliot Fisher, an MSc student at the University of Oxford’s School of Geography and the Environment, is studying the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on human’s relations with the natural world.
As part of his research Elliot is asking different conservation and nature communities, organisations and professionals throughout the UK, about their opinions and observations of humans and nature during the pandemic, and how it has affected their practices and their aspirations for the future.
Elliot says: “As we begin to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are living through a moment where change once thought of as impossible, is now being actioned. I hope that my research will contribute to the creation of a more abundant and flourishing world as we emerge from the lockdown. By completing my survey, you play an important part of this ambition”.
Elliot explains: “The questions themselves are a mixture of multiple choice and open text field that gives you the room to explain or elaborate on your opinion. The detail you provide in this reasoning is particularly of interest, so please do share as much detail as possible. There are no ‘right’ answers. This questionnaire will take you between 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on how much detail you wish to share.”

The deadline for completing the survey is Sunday 26 July at 23:00.
