Nature

Healthy ecosystems are vital to our survival and prosperity, providing essential services such as clean water, clean air, crop pollination and flood prevention. Connecting with nature also has positive effects on mental health and wellbeing - for example around half of UK adults said that visiting green spaces helped them to cope during the coronavirus pandemic    .

Expanding and improving the quality of our green spaces, and providing areas where wildlife can flourish, are key elements in reducing our overall global footprint. Everyone can get involved - whether it is growing some native plants in a window box, creating a wildlife-friendly garden or joining a community tree-planting event.
