30 Days Wild is the UK’s biggest nature challange. Run by the Wildlife Trusts, this annual event is taking place between 1st – 30th June 2023. The event is suitable for people of all ages and backgrounds and aims to connect people with nature and increase their appreciation of the natural world by asking them to do one wild thing a day for the entire month. A five year review of 30 Days Wild participants found that people felt happier and healthier from taking part, with the effects lasting for at least two months afterwards.

This event has continued to grow, with the majority of participants in 2021 starting that the pandemic made them value nature more. Over two million people have taken part over the last nine years. Last year alone, over 500,000 people took part in the challenge, with popular activities including wildlife-watching, planting wildflower seeds and listening to birdsong.

Key themes of 30 Days Wild

For the first time, each week of 30 Days Wild will have a different theme. These are:

  • Tune into the senses
  • Movement and play
  • Learning and discovery
  • Helping nature
  • Emotional connection to nature.

These themes will take you on a week-by-week adventure, helping to guide you through the challenge to reach the 30 day target.

How to get involved
