Keeping It Wild Youth Question Time

Tuesday 3rd October

Keeping It Wild Youth Question Time

'What do you think about the 'state of nature' in Nottingham?' is the question being debated on 18th October at Nottingham Council House by students, schools and youth groups. The session will run from 1pm to 3pm and will include input from a panel of political leaders, decision makers, national and local environmental campaigners.

This is a unique and very important event giving young people a voice and a platform to ask important questions about the 'state of nature' in Nottingham.

The event will cover themes about the worrying trend of disconnection people have with the natural world as well as, what is the value of nature in Nottingham, innovative ideas to help protect and ideas about how to grow a thriving wildlife landscape within an urban city.

From a need for clean fresh air to breath to the need to connect with wildlife, from the potential opportunities to nature tourism to wild meadows in our city centres, this event is exciting and positive for teenagers in Nottingham.

Nottignhamshire Wildlife Trust invites your pupils and schools, groups and youth projects to take part and put a spotlight on nature and the environment in our city.

Our event will include the creative launch of a green manifesto presentation by young people, and a panel will include the following (additional panel members TBC)

Mark Avery, National campaigner for wildlife conservation and published author (20 years National Director for Conservation for RSPB)

Stephanie Hilbourne OBE, Cheif Executive for The Wildlife Trusts, UK

Councillor Jon Collins / Leader of Nottingham City Council and Portfolio Holder for Strategic Infrastructure and Communications

Eddie Curry / Head of Parks and Open Spaces, Nottingham City Council

FREE tickets are available for young people aged 14 - 24 and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust welcomes your school/group/project to join us together with teachers, leaders, support/youth workers. Booking is essential online via this link.

A more detailed event programme will be sent to you closer to the event along with the manifesto POSTER created by young people and details about how to submit a question to be considered for the event. There is an aim for each school/ group to be selected to ask a question.

Each young person will also receive a FREE Keeping it WILD kit to take away and continue the campaign.
