Bristol’s Pesticide Amnesty
Held in two locations in Bristol (Redcatch Gardens and Blaise Plant Nursery), Bristol's Pesticide Amnesty took place 23rd-24th October 2021. The Pesticide Amnesty took place within the context of Bristol's One City Ecological Emergency, specifically the pesticide strand, which sets out the aspiration in the Strategy to reduce pesticide usage within the city by 50% by 2030. 85 people took part in the amnesty with 110 pesticide items handed in to be safely disposed of by Bristol Waste.

Show and Tell
In June 2021, we worked with both undergraduate and postgraduate UWE students to co-create a 'Show and Tell' Nature hybrid event as part of the Festival of Nature. With the aid of workshops and support from the project leaders, students worked in small collaborative groups to develop engaging Show and Tell activities, encouraging viewers to take action for nature. Eight high quality films of the activities were produced and broadcast during the online festival programme, which encouraged audiences to learn about the natural world and take part at home.
