People & Nature
Easy access to good quality green spaces makes us healthier and happier, improves our sense of community and encourages us to take positive action to protect the environment. Connecting people to nature is one of the key ways to address climate change, reverse biodiversity collapse, and improve our own wellbeing.
Join us as we work towards a society where everyone across the UK can access green space, connect with nature and be its champion.
We all have a responsibility to care for nature and understand our role within the ecosystem. But, for people to understand their environment, their place in it and their role in caring for it, they must have the opportunity to experience and nurture a deep connection to nature.
Around 1 in 3 of us don’t have access to accessible nature-rich spaces near our homes, with no green space at all in some of the most deprived areas, widening the gap in health outcomes between the richest and poorest in society.
