Making Natural Connections

Calling all community and youth leaders who want to learn, share and unlock why nature matters to their community.

Kew Grow Wild and Eden Project Communities are teaming up to help community and youth organisations in Birmingham and the Midlands to unlock why nature matters to their community and the many benefits this can bring.

There are so many creative ways we can connect with nature and each other, from music to art to dance, film, sport, food, therapy, even our memories. Your communities have their own unique needs and connections and this is an opportunity to share their experiences and approaches and learn from others about how making natural connections can benefit their health, well-being and future aspirations in so many ways.

This event is also an opportunity to share and develop new ideas and discover the support, tools, resources and funding provided by Kew Grow Wild and Eden Project Communities and other partners that can help turn new ideas into a reality for your group or community.

This free event is open to anyone who is linked to a community or youth organisation and has a project or an idea which aims to connect people with nature in an exciting way. Come and share your experience with others, discuss and explore new ideas, and come away with a plan of action!

Food and drink
Free tea, coffee and cold drinks will be available throughout the event, as well as a cold vegetarian buffet (please let us know any dietary requirements when completing your registration).
