Get involved in the Festival of Nature 2022

Posted in: Doing Public Engagement

The Festival of Nature and City Nature Challenge are back for 2022 and there are lots of opportunities for you to get involved and engage participants and festival-goers with your research.

Festival of Nature

Friday 10 to Saturday 18 June 2022

The Festival of Nature is the UK's largest free celebration of the natural world and in 2022 is heading back outdoors after a hiatus of two years. The programme will involve in-person, digital and hybrid events across the whole of the South West with the aim of enabling people to take action for nature. There are three ways for you to get involved as a researcher:
  1. Action Day (Friday 10 June 2022) - taking place across Bath and Bristol, this all-day event will encourage residents, schools, businesses, families and individuals across the South West to take action for nature. If you are running a citizen science project, or have a clear public ask stemming from your research then we’d love for you to run a workshop, or provide
    information for us to include this in our event pack / marketing.
  2. Mini-Beasts Party (Saturday 11 June 2022) - an all-day event for families at the Bristol Beacon that will feature workshops, music, arts and crafts, games and inspiration for kids and parents to take action for nature. If you want to get involved you could host a stall, give a short talk or lead a workshop sharing your research.
  3. Nature Content Creators (Thursday 16 June 2022) - Are you interested in the power of podcasts, filmmaking, writing or illustration to engage with audiences? At this event, you'll meet various science communication content creators and have the opportunity to develop your skills and expertise through workshops and talks.
If you're interested in taking part in any of these activities drop the team at the Natural History Consortium a line ( Free free to contact the Public Engagement Unit if you want to discuss any ideas (
