Check out this new event, the Urban Nature Festival, from one of Green Jobs for Nature’s project partners, UK Youth for Nature:
“Introducing our Urban Nature Festival, this September, kicking off our brand new Urban Nature Campaign! The festival will be a day to celebrate the UK’s city-dwelling shrubs and critters and a fun creative space to meet like-minded people.“
Urban Nature Festival
UK Youth for Nature are running an Urban Nature Day Festival on the 9th of September (10am-6pm), aimed at 18-35 year olds who love nature and want to learn more about access to nature in urban landscapes, and all the exciting species they can discover there. Tickets are free and can be booked here. Lunch is included (vegan, veggie and GF options are available). Under-18s are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult.
“A day event full of workshops, panel discussions and nature walks in the centre of Liverpool!”
Working in collaboration with the Wildlife Trusts, we will be hosting a variety of talks, panels and activities throughout the day including:
- Get Guerilla Gardening with Ellen Miles
- A panel discussion around access to nature with Jasmine Isa Qureshi, Mahnoor Kamran, and City Girl in Nature.
- Nature walks to transform the way you view urban ecology, including Urban plants and Bird Walks (with RSPB)
- Workshop: creative tools for environmental campaigning
- Plus a chance for you to come and tell us what you want to see governments doing for biodiversity in your towns and cities + many more!
…AND THERE’S MORE!
A full breakdown of the day is to come soon. Your ticket includes lunch! Vegetarian, Vegan and gluten-free options will all be available.
