Do you have a passion for the planet? Do you want to take action in your community or housing estate, but don’t know where to start?
This Autumn Backyard Nature is hosting Green Innovation Labs across England. These workshops, run by Liminal Labs, will challenge people aged 7-25 to team up with other young people to explore some of the biggest problems facing the environment today. You’ll work together to find how you can use your voice to make a difference in your own backyard.
On 21st October we’re heading to Liverpool – the home of the Eco Emeralds, the young people who started Backyard Nature. We’ll tackle how to be less wasteful and the 4 “R”s – refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle.

Young people can sign up as an individual or a group of friends. Community groups and schools are also invited to bring along a group of young climate enthusiasts. We have some budget available to support transport costs for participants. Please email for more information.
