Greener UK

Along with 13 other major conservation and political voices from across the UK, we have formed the Greener UK coalition. Collectively we bring more than 8 million members and supporters together. 

We’re in the midst of huge political change. We need the next UK government to go beyond simple safeguarding protections and restore nature and natural resources within a generation, as set out in the Greener UK vision statement.

We must act now to improve the environmental protections and shape a new land use policy for the UK which takes better advantage of the huge benefits woods and trees offer.
