Every time that you skip buying or using something, you are taking positive action for nature, and we have all been guilty of occasionally taking a little more than we need. Every product you buy or activity you take part in takes some kind of resource from the natural world, big or small. So by taking small steps to reduce what you consume, you are making a big difference that seriously adds up over time. You might even save some money along the way!
The Festival of Nature is back and looking a bit different this year with a brand new programme of activity to help everyone discover new ways to connect with nature this summer.
This year’s festival is all about ‘Nature’s Voices’ celebrating and honouring how nature has supported us through the pandemic, and the ways we can work together with nature to support our collective recoveries
Check our blog for daily activity updates and links to catch up on anything you’ve missed, book on to a live event and follow the action on socials #FestOfNature21
Throughout Festival of Nature 2021 we will be releasing podcasts about how you can take Action for Nature and help the nature on your doorstep.
At Festival of Nature we are all about celebrating this beautiful, complex, awe inspiring natural world and the amazing people and organisations working tirelessly to keep it that way.
That includes you! You might not know it but you are probably already doing things everyday that are great for nature and also great for you! From saving water to growing veg, and walking to school to reusing carrier bags.
Check out our Everyday Actions hub for a whole range of downloadable activities, materials, videos and links to help you connect with nature in your neighbourhood and discover how your everyday actions can help with nature’s recovery:
