On 31 January 2018, Environment Secretary, Michael Gove, launched the ‘Year of Green Action’. This is a year-long drive to get us all involved in projects which help us to connect with, protect and enhance our natural world – be that in our own gardens, schools, parks, workplaces, as volunteers or as consumers.
Improving our understanding of the state of the environment, the benefits a healthy environment can bring, and the effect of our actions on the natural world.
Help us to reduce our impact on the environment through greener decision-making.
Inspiring us to actively improve our local environment.
Devon’s Year of Green Action – Collaborative Themes
Natural Devon partners are collaborating around a monthly theme – see below. We will be promoting ideas, events, facts and activities all of which are aimed at helping us to help nature – in particular to develop a healthy Nature Recovery Network across the county and meet climate targets. More details out soon but get in touch if you have any ideas and share what you are doing on social media using #iwill4nature and copying in @devon_lnp so that we can promote.
