Welcome to Festival of Nature 2021!
27th May 2021
Welcome! We're so excited to welcome you to Festival of Nature 2021. It’s hard to believe that this year marks our 19th anniversary of running Festival of Nature, and this year feels extra special as we all start to navigate festivals and special events after Covid-19.
This year feels extra important, too. Nature became a lifeline for many of us during the UK’s lockdowns, and recent research from Natural England’s People and Nature Survey included 43% of adults saying visiting green and natural spaces has been even more important to their wellbeing since coronavirus.
The Natural History Consortium partners are passionate about working together to finding new and innovative ways to connect people and nature. We can’t run our big, outdoor, flagship events this year – but rather than doing something smaller, we decided to go just as big (but different!). Over the Festival of Nature week we’ll be showcasing over 100 pieces of original content packed full of ideas to help you take action for nature, and have a brilliant summer of wildlife (whatever the weather).
So join us! Log on, listen in, drop by and get out exploring. We can’t wait to hear what you think!
