June Events

Restore Nature Now

Saturday 22nd June, Park Lane/Hyde Park/Parliament Square, London

The Restore Nature Now event is designed to address the intertwined climate and ecological crises through a family-friendly march through central London. With an upcoming election, this is a crucial time to demand that all political parties exhibit strong leadership on domestic and global environmental issues. This event, which will be the largest gathering for nature and climate that the UK has ever seen, promises to be a peaceful, inclusive, and family-friendly event. It is both a celebration of British nature and a protest demanding urgent action on nature and climate emergencies. This will be a great opportunity for solidarity, inspiration, and empowerment. Supporters include major wildlife conservation groups such as The Wildlife TrustsBumblebee Conservation TrustWWF, and various climate action groups.

Logistics: Carrie our CEO will be taking the 8:31am train from Billingshurst, passing through Horsham at 8:50am, and arriving at Victoria at 9.46am. From there, we will either walk past Buckingham Palace Gardens to Hyde Park/Park Lane or take the underground to Green Park, arriving at 10.03am. The main gathering will occur from 12pm to 1pm at Park Lane, London, W1K, so later trains will be very busy! The march will feature family-friendly performances, sculptures, singing, and more. It will be wheelchair accessible and BSL interpreted, taking a predetermined route through the city and concluding with a rally in Parliament Square around 2.30pm. Prominent speakers will discuss necessary political and policy changes. The rally ends at 4.30pm, but you are welcome to leave at any time.

There are going to be four sections to the march: Air, Land, Water and Woodland, we will be in the air section of the march, our theme bees and flowers. More information can be seen in our Restore Nature Now newsletter here.
