Flock Together: Outsiders
Nadeem Perera, Ollie Olanipekun
AS SEEN ON BBC ONE’S THE ONE SHOW
Brought together by a shared love of birding, Ollie Olanipekun and Nadeem Perera set up Flock Together to challenge the underrepresentation of people of colour in nature. What started as a walk in their local park instantly sparked a global outdoors movement centred on community and activism through nature.
With a vision to change the world from the outside in, Outsiders is a memoir and manifesto about the power of nature to heal, inspire and unite us in the face of prejudice and inequity.
