Teachers’ Session: Nadav Kander - In Conversation

This session is part of an ongoing series of events exploring how photography can help develop our understanding of the world and increase awareness of environmental issues in the classroom.

Nadav Kander is a photographer whose work looks at the traces of human intervention through landscape and portraiture. Join this Teachers’ Session where he will present a range of his photography work including a recent series,The Pause. This will be followed by an in-conversation with James Sewell who will draw out ideas that can be applied back in the classroom. The event will widen out to include participants' questions and ideas for ensuring an ongoing commitment to addressing climate change and human impact on the environment with pupils. 

Please note, this event is planned specifically for teachers and trainee teachers who are at primary and secondary school level. We encourage hearing more about your experience related to the theme of the environment during the discussion.
