Abi Nimmo, Founder/Director of Ethical Wellbeing UK is a committed animal activist and environmentalist.
Abi is a Biomedical Scientist and an Occupational Therapist (OT), with 28 years experience working in frontline health and social care, working with children and adults with physical disabilities. Abi has recently given up her full-time job as a community OT to concentrate on her passion, which includes enabling the health and wellbeing of others through compassion for our planet and all it’s creatures.
Like many, she had little idea of where to begin, but realised that she simply HAD to do something, to do her bit for the environment!
And so to Abi’s vision, which is to mount Ethical Wellbeing Festivals/Events in one of many well placed but temporarily empty and available London buildings, (yet another crime is that there are these redundant buildings standing here awaiting demolition when property is at such a premium).
As a vital part of these events, Ethical Wellbeing UK will also be providing reasonably priced spaces in the future for small ethical businesses such as companies making ethically made jewellery, toiletries & clothing, these spaces will be available for storage, manufacturing, workshops, groups and classes including: yoga, biodanza & meditation.
The main festival for each venue will run over two days & will be animal free (vegan). On the Saturday of each festival Ethical Wellbeing UK will be hosting silent yoga discos.
We are aiming to have VIP conservationists speakers at our events. This will enable particularly children and young adults to ask any questions they may have. about the world of conservation. There will also be book signings, demonstrations and educational talks.
Such events and careful use of otherwise empty spaces will enable Ethical Wellbeing UK to raise money to support people from disadvantaged backgrounds to work/volunteer in conservation, and in doing so actively promote their wellbeing too.
Ethical Wellbeing’s mission: to sponsor at least 5 young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds to access conservation projects abroad for up to 6 months, whilst providing them with the right type of care and support to develop their own skills in order to properly enter gainful employment. This type of project will create a legacy, as their experiences in caring for the environment should transfer to those around them and to their progeny.
To get involved:
Abi has a team of 30 supporting her venture, this is however Abi’s first festival, she would really appreciate your support to make this steep learning curve a success. If you would like to be a part of the event, or would like to know more about Abi/Ethical Wellbeing’s mission, please visit:
