INSPIRATION: Wild Weekender

Save Our Wild Isles is an urgent call to action. In their first major campaign together, WWF, the RSPB, and the National Trust are calling for an immediate halt to the destruction of UK nature and urgent action for its recovery. 

The inspirational campaign is asking people to show they love nature, by acting now, because we know that we must all be part of the change every day if we’re going to turn this crisis around. Creating wilder spaces, making nature part of our lives, and speaking up on its behalf is what everyone should be doing.  

“We now have a few short years during which we can still make a choice. Where just enough remains of the natural world for it to recover. This starts and ends with us.”

Sir David Attenborough

Wild Weekender

From 28th April to 1st May, the campaign will be bringing the UK together for one Wild Weekend to help people wild their outdoor spaces at home and in their community. Those that sign up to take part will receive all the tips, hints, and advice they need to take action over this weekend and beyond, including an easy-to-use downloadable e-guide that helps them sow and grow welcoming habitats for local nature.

There will also be a live event on Saturday 29th April, streamed on RSPB’s YouTube channel, and includes Q&A sessions, demonstrations, and special guest appearances from experts and nature champions to help people get inspired and take action over the weekend and beyond.

Anyone can get involved and share what they are doing using the #MyWildSpace.
