Tuesday 4 June 2024, multiple locations across Bristol

Take your team out of the office for a purposeful away day this June with Festival of Nature. Reconnect, align, and motivate in beautiful green spaces in and around Bristol, while championing local community initiatives.

It's widely acknowledged that spending time outdoors in nature is beneficial to health and wellbeing (as well as improving productivity!). Natural England and the NHS are collaborating on this pilot event, connecting businesses with Green Social Prescribing practitioners that offer inspiring outdoor sessions, as part of the Healthier with Nature programme.

Grow the positive impacts of your business and strengthen employee relationships to one another and the wider community, during this day of Green Social Prescribing activities.
