About John Parry

With a background in TV, teaching, academia (University of Sussex) and teacher training followed by the vision to create a community centre to promote the study of environmental change in Lewes, Dr John Parry has developed innovative approaches to engaging many different ages and groups at the Lewes Railway Land Local Nature Reserve for over 25 years. He has had direct experience of environmental education policy making and has engaged students over many years with his mix of theoretical background, conceptual reach and practical experience on the ground. As Director of the Railway Land Project he masterminded the development of the Linklater Pavilion - a purpose built, award-winning, hexagonal building that now serves as an environmental community hub from which the latest Railway Land Live! project will be run.
