Impact Report 2021-2022

Welcome to our Impact Report for the year ending 31 March 2022.

This was a challenging 12 months for Earth Trust, as for so many individuals and organisations. But despite the disruptions caused by national lock down and shifting funding priorities, we were able to deliver a number of significant – and award winning – initiatives around nature based solutions to climate, biodiversity and health.  We would have not delivered in 21/22 without the tireless dedication and support from our incredible network of volunteers, supporters and staff.

This period also served as a catalyst for change.  2022 is significant for Earth Trust as it marks the launch of a new strategy, and our 40th anniversary. Through 40 years of changing landscape, one constant which has remained is Earth Trust’s passion and commitment to bring people and nature closer together – striving for a society where all the living world can thrive.
