York Environment Week is back for 2023 – with a bigger programme than ever before.
Now in its fourth year, the annual city-wide festival aims at showcasing and celebrating the work of active environment groups in York. The programme offers the opportunity to get involved with tackling climate change, increasing biodiversity, and making the city more sustainable.
The main festival week runs from Saturday 23 September to Sunday 1 October, with some events taking place before and after this week.
For 2023, the packed programmed has over 60 events. It offers a wide range of environment-focused activities across York that are free and open to all, that includes everything from nature walks to climate education events to a People’s Assembly discussing how York should respond to the climate crisis as a city.
There will also be arts events, films, talks for all ages, and events exploring practical solutions to environmental issues.
It features everything from climate science workshops to wild walks, a climate café and an autumn fayre.
The theme for this year’s York Environment Week (YEW) is ‘everything, everywhere, all at once’.
The YEW organising team said: “We are delighted to see so many events this year and to have lots of old friends back on board, as well as welcoming many new event organisers.
“We invite the people of York to explore the programme, discover a new community of like-minded people, and start making a difference for the better. Working together to take action, we can have so much more of an impact.”
