Actions for Nature

We all know how important the natural world is to our wellbeing – and that’s becoming more apparent than ever.

From enjoying the uplifting sound of birdsong through an open window, to getting a welcome dose of fresh air and exercise in a local park, people across the UK are turning to nature for solace, perhaps for the first time. 

What actions did you take?

2020 was a great time to embrace the renewed appreciation for the world around us, and work together to build the future we want to see. We called it #ActionsForNature. We asked you what actions you took. Whether it was feeding your neighbourhood wildlife, lobbying your MP, writing a protest song, or eating less meat and dairy, we loved reading about the actions you took, big and small.

Many of you took a photo or video and shared it with us using #ActionsForNature (which you can see below on our wall). We hope that by sharing your actions, you inspired others to do their bit too, and create a positive movement. From the hundreds of submissions we received, we chose our top seven Super Stories, showcasing the brilliant things people have done to take action for nature.
