Feeling Good in a Green City

To mark the end of the IWUN and to celebrate and share outputs and results from the project, we are holding a 3-day event in the city to disseminate results and recommendations.  The event will run from Tuesday 26th March 2019 to Thursday 28th March 2019.

The first day of the event will be a one day conference style event at St Mary’s church and conference centre, Bramall Lane where we will present our findings all together for the first time and talk about what Sheffield has got right and what can be improved in our city including for BAME residents, younger people, older people and those with physical and mental health difficulties.  Greg Fell, the city council’s Director of Public Health, will give an overview of the challenges facing our city and members of the IWUN team will present their research and show how it forms part of a bigger story about what nature means for us today. The conference day will take place:

Date:                   Tuesday 26th March 2019
Time:                   9:30am – 3:30pm
Venue:                St Mary’s Conference Centre, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4QZ

The following 2 days will be held at Weston Park Museum, Weston Park and the Ponderosa on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th March 2019.  These 2 days will include a number of hands on activities and workshops with local artists and facilitators delivering arts based workshops, mindfulness sessions, park tours/walks and an exhibition of materials produced throughout the duration of the project. We would also like to give IWUN stakeholders the opportunity to join in the event and showcase their organisation/activities during these 2 days.  We are inviting expressions of interest from IWUN Stakeholders who would like to showcase their organisations/activities at the event in Weston Park and the Ponderosa on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th March 2019.
