Om Dawn Sanders

Associate Professor


Research My doctoral dissertation (Sussex University, 2004) examined the educational role of botanic gardens. Increasingly, humans are an urban species. This demographic shift has implications for both individual and collective perceptions of nature. The world can no longer afford our citizens to see 'nothing' when they look at plants, the basis of most life on earth. I believe plant-based learning has a critical role to play in contemporary life.
