 New stretch target

Our budget can be adapted to any level of funds raised. There are too few 'green' and wild places near urban areas in York, but additional stretch target funds we will be able to support further patches of wild nature in need of environmental action. Additionally, we will be able to support more young people to connect eco-art with environment hopefully raising aspirations for career choice pathways to future sustainability and environmental work.


At New Visuality we are pioneering an extraordinary initiative—the 'York Eco-Art & Nature Care' project. This campaign combines Art, Inclusivity, and Environmental Consciousness, particularly focusing on empowering the disabled youth of York. By engaging these young minds in mentoring programmes that integrate creativity with eco-conscious projects, we not only benefit our environment but also provide these youths with invaluable skills and experiences. These initiatives are not just about artistic expression; they are vital for nurturing responsibility towards our ecological heritage, enhancing biodiversity, and ensuring the sustainable development of our community.

We are excited to invite you to join us in transforming York into a model city of ecological and creative harmony. Your donations will directly fund a series of workshops, the creation of meaningful eco-art installations, and vital biodiversity projects like developing habitats for local wildlife and planting native trees. These efforts are crucial for promoting eco-consciousness, community involvement, and skill development among the youth. With your support, we can make a significant impact—creating urban green spaces, encouraging youth activism in climate action, and fostering a deeper appreciation for our natural surroundings. Help us make a lasting difference in York and beyond; donate to 'York Eco-Art & Nature Care' today and be a part of this innovative venture towards a sustainable future.

Your donations and payments towards the Rewards we have published will be doubled by the Aviva Community Fund helping support York Eco-Art & Nature Care.
