Impact Report 2022-2023

Welcome to our annual Impact Report for the year ending 31 March 2023.

The effects of biodiversity loss and climate change are being felt by local communities worldwide. We now find ourselves at a critical crossroads where the fate of our planet and our economic future intersect to shape life on Earth. Our work is more relevant than ever.

Over the past year, we have witnessed the tangible impact of our work through practical initiatives, well-defined objectives, measurable outcomes, and our ability to influence positive change.  This impact report illustrates our proactive response to some of the most pressing global challenges, emphasising the urgent requirement for local initiatives to catalyse far-reaching transformations.

We are a community that can make tangible change happen. Together, with our supporters, we are empowering a wider number of people and organisations to create a lasting impact for the benefit of people and planet.
