VOICES FOR THE WILD, is in aid of The Wilderness Foundation UK and will be an evening packed full of inspirational speakers and young people giving nature a voice. Through personal stories of experiences in nature and transformations in the wild, the evening will raise awareness of our natural landscapes, the wonderful work being undertaken by the Wilderness Foundation UK, and inspire and engage people to conserve nature.
The Foundation engages over 5,000 people per year with the benefits and enjoyment of wild nature. Programmes develop future sustainability leaders, build resilience in vulnerable teenagers with challenging lives and mental health issues, introduce rural employment to urban youth, and bring curriculum-based sciences to life in the outdoors. They switch off technology and switch on reality.
During the event visitors can also share the positive power of nature on the human spirit through LIFELINE, a collaborative and public art installation visualising how nature is a ‘lifeline’ for people, created for the Wilderness Foundation UK. LIFELINE is a visual representation of the wonderful work of the Foundation sharing how they help and support vulnerable youths and people using the therapeutic power of nature.
The evening will also consist of an auction, raffle and a book launch and all proceeds from the evening will go towards the Wilderness Foundation UK.
