Event Description

NatureCon’s mission is to inspire connections between related SL communities and organizations through a shared love of exploration and expressions of nature in SL. We hope to unite and inspire collaboration between Bellisseria and Mainland organizations under the shared goal of promoting exploration across the grid. 

While we have a huge group of collaborators already, we still have limited capacity available for last-minute-contributions for collaborators who would like to contribute with an installation.

We are also looking to collaborate with social media partners (bloggers, vloggers, magazine owners), performers and musicians, tour hosts, and everyone else who’d like to offer a nature-related event or activity during NatureCon. We can offer those collaborators a booth at NatureCon (details below).

 

Collaborators can contribute to the event in various ways (an excerpt; for inspiration):

  • Booths sharing public community organizations, groups, and natural locations in SL
  • Installations and demonstrations about nature, environmental protection, animal welfare & more
  • Live artistic performances 
  • Speaker Panels featuring community organization leaders
  • Workshops and offsite events celebrating nature, travel, and exploration 
  • Natural areas to connect and network
  • Interviews, Articles, Posts, Videos about the event and/or the collaborators

Booth Info

Guidelines for Booths

A demo prim that shares the size and space of each type of booth is available. Please let us know which booth you’ve selected so that we know where you’d like to be placed for the event. Our event is nature themed, featuring Mainland and Bellisseria landscaping and design. Contributor builds will be nestled amid trees, bushes, flowers, and other soft landscape design items, so please design your contribution accordingly. 

Please keep all structures and items confined to your booth space, unless otherwise approved.

Our event is about community connection, and we’d like to keep monetary exchange to a minimum. You can link to your mainstore for products at your booth, and you are encouraged to offer a ‘swag’ (free, can be branded) item to share. All things shared must be in relation to: 

  • nature 
  • hiking
  • exploring
  • travel
  • outdoors
  • animals
  • gardening and farming
