People in Stourbridge are being encouraged to get involved with a family arts festival that celebrates action on climate change as part of The Big Green Week from 24th September until 2nd October.

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 the team have received funding from Arts Council England and The Climate Coalition to put on actvities across Birmingham and the Black Country including in Bearwood, Smethwick, Bournville, Kings Heath, Northfield and new areas Stourbridge and Sparkhill.

Growing up Green is brought together 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.
