A Children and Family Arts Festival that celebrates action on climate change as part of The Great Big Green Week 24th September-2nd October 2022.

Last year the festival took place across Birmingham and the Black Country during the week of 18- 26 September 2021 and gave 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.

This year we have received funding from Arts Council England and The Climate Coalition and will be working in Bearwood, Smethwick, Bournville, Kings Heath, Northfield and new areas Stourbridge and Sparkhill. 


Growing up Green is brought together online at www.growingup.green and through a collaborative programme of workshops, events and a specially curated young people's Creative Climate Activists' programme. 
 

 

Growing up Green explored all types of activism - gentle and more direct and has been co-produced with communities, parents and local organisers. ​Growing Up Green includes over 30 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.If you or your children have any questions about Climate Change - check our FAQs here. 

The Great Big Green Week is the largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces
