Nature Matters 2019


Nature Matters 2019: Time for Nature 

Thursday 31st Oct-Sunday 3rd Nov 2019

This year the event will be held in St Peter’s School in York. This is the first time the full event has been held in the north of England and the exciting programme will reflect the history and wildlife of the region. We’re excited and proud to announce a number other firsts. Our first full length gig will be on the opening night with the extraordinary experimental folk musician and singer with nightingales, Sam Lee and special guests. We’ll be celebrating our first legacy public artwork by ATM Streetart, and offering our first Sunday excursion, and for the first time offering concessionary ticket prices to students and unwaged delegates. We’ll be time travelling throughout the event, dipping into the deep past, exploring the most pertinent issues of now, and looking to the future with sessions on eco-archaeology, environmental protest and nature for children. There will be beauty and wonder, music and words, art and film, poetry and polemic and, because we all need it, some humour too. The Saturday finale will be an in-conversation event with wildlife presenter, campaigner and long-time friend of NNN, Chris Packham. This will be our most diverse event to date, reflecting our strong belief that nature is for everyone and our shared responsibility in defending it. What’s more, there is space for many more delegates than we’ve ever had before! We absolutely can’t wait to see you there.
