UPDATE - Our work with Greener UK
We’re in the midst of huge political change irrespective of the outcome of the General Election.
Since most of the rules protecting our natural environment come from the EU, it’s crucial not only to defend these protections but to ensure the UK Government leads the world in setting standards to secure the future for our woods, wildlife and wild places.
Before the 2017 General Election, Theresa May’s Government made a commitment "to ensure that we become the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it".
If this is to be translated into action, we must take the opportunity, as the UK prepares to leave the EU, to improve the protections in place, and shape a new land-use policy for the UK which takes much better advantage of the huge range of benefits woods and trees can offer.
A critical time...
Along with 12 other major conservation and political voices from across the UK, we have formed the Greener UK coalition. Collectively we bring 7.9 million members and supporters together - a huge voice for nature that can help to influence how it will take shape in the years to come.
