Good Business Festival Hub
The Good Business Festival Youth Summit and education programme is hosted in a new kitchen garden at Knowsley Safari.
The kitchen garden will help young people from Knowsley and beyond learn about horticulture, food production and sustainability. The garden has been built with the support from the Incredible Edible Foundation who will be organising special workshops for local schools over the coming months.
It’s just one part of a new education initiative being delivered by The Good Business Festival – a three-day event across the city region from 7-9th July focusing on ethical, inclusive and purpose-driven business in July of this year.
The education programme will include a set of special workshops for young people across the city region from partners including Dot Art, Metal, UK Youth for Nature, Abandon Normal Devices, Collective Encounters, Liverpool World Centre, The Bluecoat and the British Antarctic Survey amongst others. The programme will also be transformed into a digital resource which will be made available to schools and community groups across the Liverpool City Region and beyond.
In addition, the Good Business Festival are working with Knowsley Council to deliver a special youth summit this summer, taking inspiration from the COP26 United Nations climate change conference being held this autumn in Glasgow. The summit – hosted by TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham – will bring together hundreds young people from across the Liverpool City Region to take part in a schedule of talks and activities exploring how business impacts climate, the environment and animal habitats.
Taking full advantage of the surroundings of Knowsley Safari, the Youth Summit includes a line-up of special activities and interactive sessions from conservation tours to animal-themed aerobics.
Official youth programme partners include Knowsley Safari, British Antarctic Survey, Collective Encounters, Metal, Dot Art, UK Youth for Nature, Incredible Edible Foundation, Liverpool World Centre, Abandon Normal Devices (AND), Liverpool Schools Parliament, Roots and Wings, Knowsley Safari, The Bluecoat
