A Children and Family Arts Festival that celebrates nature connection and climate action as part of The Great Big Green Week.

The festival takes place across Birmingham and the Black Country and gives children an opportunity to be in relationship with nature, nurture their curiosity in everyday ecology and help signpost a way to being environmentally responsible now and in the future.

Growing Up Green recognises the important link between nature connection and climate action, that humans or all ages need to feel connected with nature in order to commit to its protection.

In its third year, the festival has already engaged over 5000 children and families.

Growing up Green is brought together online at 


Growing up Green 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 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.
