#GrowingUpGreen is a Children and Family Arts Festival that celebrates action on climate change in Birmingham and the Black Country from 24th Sept – 2nd October 2022 as part of #TheGreatBigGreenWeek


#GrowingUpGreen explores all types of activism – gentle and more direct and has been co-produced with communities, parents and local organisers. Growing Up Green includes over 50 high quality workshops, performances and events, using arts and culture as a powerful tool to inspire young audiences to imagine themselves and their families as important protagonists to take action on the climate and ecological crisis. This year we have a specially curated performance programme by The Other Way Works that helps to tell stories of the climate crisis and encourages children to use their imaginations and agency to come up with solutions and take part in climate action. You can see the full programme at www.growingup.green

We are also joined by Youth Climate Activist Elania Hunt who will be running a training programme for young people and the adults who work with them, called ‘Climate Champions’ that builds upon work already developed by Elania and the Climate Action Network. The programme aims to develop young people’s skills, and fully support them in becoming future change makers. The sessions offer participants (aged 16 yrs+) the space to explore and develop their ideas, make vital connections in their communities, understand the process of project development, and most importantly protect their wellbeing within work that often presents various barriers.

This session runs via Zoom on Wednesday 28th September from 4pm-6m– Register your free place here. Please spread the word! This session would be great for youth workers, teachers, parents and young people themselves.
