About

imagine a future run by young people

events, livestreams, videos, projects and festivals created by and for young people, about Nature, wellbeing and future

The state of the world has us alarmed, and we have a lot of other pressures on us.
Our events & activities give other young people their voice about Nature and the way we want to live 
- and the tools and skills to imagine and create a better future.  


  • Three quarters of young people are worried about an uncertain future due to the climate crisis, pandemics and extinction of nature 
  • These anxieties, together with the many modern world social pressures, are part of our current youth mental wellbeing crisis
     
  • Siren Calling is workshops, events and media by young people for young people, about us, Nature and the way we live

  • Ideas, tools, creativity and transferable life skills that help give us control of our own destiny and enable us to imagine a better future


~ Siren is about action and hope, seeking to replace “so what?” with “what if?” ~


Led by young people for young people, Siren is projects, skill-sharing and mentoring for 16-25 year-olds from all backgrounds, abilities and values; supporting mental health and well-being, self-confidence and a sense of belonging. The transferable life skills learned can help us strengthen our relationship with the natural world and explore new ways of thinking and living for our communities.


Manifesto2


Why? Human and non-human futures are changing fast. Right now young people are hugely impacted by coronavirus and understand the seriousness of climate change, loss of nature, and more. No wonder we feel anxious and powerless about their future. 

What?  Our aim is to help other young people imagine a better future: to give them agency to change the things that can be changed; and the resilience to adapt to the things that can’t. 

How?  Through music, film, performance, science, art and creative projects, we make ‘nature’ and ‘environment’ important in young people’s lives, and in ways we can relate to.

Sirens have been with us for thousands of years; calling us to our peril, sounding a warning from the sea. And never have we had more reason to pay heed. There are big changes that we are stirring in the oceans, the atmosphere, the land, our world, our coast. What we are facing is what young people and their communities are facing worldwide. How we respond to it here is an example to others.
