Businesses urged to rewild employees with 30 Days Wild in June - The Wildlife Trusts

Businesses are urged to take care of staff by signing-up to The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild – the UK’s biggest nature challenge – in June.

At a time when caring for employee wellbeing has never been more important, 30 Days Wild offers a proven way to feel happier and healthier, even months after taking part. We know that:

The 30 Days Wild annual challenge from The Wildlife Trusts has had more than a million participants to date – an estimated 650,000 people took part in 2020 alone. Every year, people sign up to do a ‘random act of wildness’ every day for 30 days during June. Popular activities include listening to birdsong, taking wildlife photographs and planting seeds. 30 Days Wild is proven to boost your mood, health, and sense of connection to nature.

30 Days Wild participants are provided with ideas, wallcharts and activity sheets that give everyone easy ways of enjoying nature whatever their location. These ‘random acts of wildness’ range from walking barefoot on grass, to sitting beneath a tree or watching birds on a feeder.

Results show that taking part in 30 Days Wild not only significantly increases people’s wellbeing and heightened sense of nature – but that these positive increases are sustained beyond the life of the challenge – for a minimum of two months after it is over. The people who benefit most are those who have a relatively weak connection with nature at the start.
