Rewild My Street makes London Wildlife Trust pledge

Siân Moxon, founder of Rewild My Street, will issue a new image every day in June to help the public transform their urban environments.

Date: 21 May 2020

Rewild My Street, a design project which aims to transform urban homes, gardens and streets for wildlife, has made a pledge to 30 Days Wild, an annual, month long nature campaign by the London Wildlife Trust. The project is founded by Siân Moxon, Senior Lecturer in Architecture and Interior Design at The Cass.

Throughout the month of June, Rewild My Street will issue the public a different image, via its website and social media platforms, each day with the goal of inspiring people to change both big and small things in their daily lives to reconnect with nature and help local wildlife.

Siân said: “30 Days Wild is an excellent annual initiative by The Wildlife Trusts and it is great news that it is going ahead this year, despite the pandemic. It seems as important a time as ever for adults and children working or learning from home to connect with nature locally. Rewild My Street wants to fulfil its own commitment to doing something wild every day in June by sharing inspiring images on social media to help the public rewild their streets. 

“These will launch with its monthly Wild Makeover Tip on 01 June, followed by a new image every day of the month, comprising design ideas for how to integrate wildlife features in an urban home, illustrated step-by-step activities, and rewilded street scenes. We hope these will inspire and inform others to make time for nature every day, whether as a break from work or part of homeschooling, helping wildlife and their own health and wellbeing in this challenging time.”
