York Environment Week 2020
Sat Nov 28 – Sun Dec 6
A diverse mix of events looking at energy, food, nature, waste and transport in York.
The main aims of YEW are to offer environmental groups active in York an opportunity to jointly celebrate and showcase their work, and to work together to share and promote environmental messages. The vision for YEW includes:
- Virtual events (e.g. videos, films, slideshows, webinars, recorded presentations/talks/panel discussions) that are available to WATCH AGAIN – by uploading to the YEW YouTube channel.
- Actual events e.g. Tree Planting – 28 November to 6 December 2020 is also National Tree Week
- SHOW and TELL events that inspire participants to learn new skills, and make use of good practice.
- The active involvement of YOUNG PEOPLE throughout the YEW programme.
- A programme which benefits physical and mental HEALTH.
- Having a positive impact on participants’ MONEY and financial resources.
- Highlighting LOCAL and GLOBAL environmental issues.
YEW is the first event of this type to be held by York Environment Forum (YEF).
