Nature Nurtures

Nature Nurtures is led by London Wildlife Trust in partnership with us at Spread the Word, Black Girls Hike CIC and London Youth. The project hosts free opportunities for young people aged 16 – 25 from communities underrepresented in the nature conservation sector that link natural heritage with creative arts to get more young people volunteering and taking action for nature. Nature Nurtures is an opportunity to explore themes of wellbeing, identity & cultural heritage within the environmental sector.

We’re collaborating to offer amazing free opportunities for 16 – 25 year old Londoners to explore and develop practical conservation and creative skills. Nature Nurtures want to work with London’s youth to create a friendly community who want to explore nature conservation, social action and the creative arts. Whether you’re a nature novice, hiking enthusiast, or have never even flexed a creative muscle – Nature Nurtures invites you to join us for our next workshop!

You’ll also have the chance for your creative work to be professionally published in a nature anthology and other creative productions.

Get Involved!

Looking for something new to do in somewhere new to hangout with other 16-25 year olds in London? Nature Nurtures is a collective of young people who are curious about nature and experimenting with creativity. Find out more about upcoming events and book your free place here:

Read the Nature Nurtures 2023 Anthology

As part of the first year of Nature Nurtures, young people were invited to contribute their creative expressions inspired by their participation in the project and by London’s nature and wildlife to an anthology. This beautiful anthology opens the window to young people’s perspective of the natural world in London and amplifies their voices.
