Trust to help raise awareness of environment and social sustainability issues

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust are to attend two festivals designed at raising awareness of environmental and social sustainability issues.

The county’s largest nature conservation charity will have a presence at the Keele University’s Green Festival 2020 on Thursday 19th March. The Trust will be telling people about its work to mitigate the effects of climate change which will be a big focus of the festival this year. 

The festival takes place from 9th - 20th March across the campus and includes all sorts of opportunities to explore sustainability, from green-themed food to health and wellbeing walks, workshops to information stands and hands-on activities.

The Trust will have an information stand at the festival, which will also include finding out more about the conservation work it carries out, its education programme and how people can get involved with the charity, including volunteering.

In addition, Jon Rowe, Roaches warden, will be carrying out a guided walk at the reserve, near Leek, as part of the festival, and Denise Gold, also of the Trust, will be holding a talk on the work of the charity. More on both can be found out via https://www.keele.ac.uk/greenkeele/getinvolved/keelegreenfestival2020/

The charity will also be attending Staffordshire University’s Green Week on Tuesday 10th March where they will be raising awareness about the work it carries out across the county.

Lauren Penny, Senior Marketing Officer for the Trust, said: “We’re really looking forward to both the events and they will be a great opportunity to talk about our work and how we look after wild places and wildlife in Staffordshire.

“The environment and climate change have become huge issues for communities and it’s important for us to have a presence at these events to inspire the next generation.”
