2O2OVISION http://www.2020v.org/ is the most ambitious nature photography initiative ever staged in Britain. It aims to establish in the public mind the crucial link between people’s wellbeing and a wilder UK – to show that healthy ecosystems are not optional, but are something fundamental to us all. As such 20 of Britain’s top nature and wildlife photographers have come together to document some of their country’s ecosystems.

Over a 20-month period, the 2020VISION team will carry out 20 iWitness assignments at these locations, producing a set of stunning pictures, along with supporting video footage and sound. The thousands of images and hours of film generated from these assignments will then be woven into compelling narratives and presented in innovative ways, such as the 2020VISION Roadshow, a multi-city event that will reach far beyond ‘the converted’.
