Event Programme

SLNF Events Programme 2021

 

This year sees the launch of a new, month long festival for Shropshire – the Shropshire Love Nature Festival. With a multitude of events running county wide, this festival will involve, inform and enthuse us all about the natural world and solutions to the current crisis it is facing. We’d like to invite you  to SIGN UP TODAY to play your part, to run your own event as part of the festivities. Help us to celebrate Shropshire’s beautiful nature and to demonstrate some of the ways we can support it during these difficult times.

WHEN?

Multiple events will run throughout the month and full event listings will be posted on our Facebook page and website.

WHERE?

Anywhere in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin where communities, organisations, farms, gardens, parks…want to run an event and get this message out.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

The festival is based on small asks of many and varied organisations/groups to organise just one event, big or small, to celebrate, tell the truth about, highlight the crisis of our natural environment and to share the many and varied ways that we can all become a part of the solution to these problems.

 

Events are run by people like you – communities, organisations or individuals caring about Nature, inspiring people of all ages and from all walks of life. Visit our webpage to find out more or to register an event. Or, contact Sue Burnell, Festival Project Manager at shropshirelovenature@gmail.com.

 

What messages are we promoting?

The health and well-being benefits of nature

The connections between climate change and the decline of Nature

That there is an urgent need to preserve and enhance our biodiversity

That we all have a part to play and we can all make a difference.

Events may include open days, exhibitions, workshops, nature themed sporting events or any other events that keep to the themes of this festival. The only limit is your imagination!

We hope some festival events will lead to actions that will directly benefit Shropshire’s biodiversity. Examples of this might include inviting people to join in with community tree planting projects, organising litter picking events, raising funds for wildlife charities, or sowing new wildflower meadows.
