You made it! Quick, there's no time to lose...
The Coronavirus crisis has led to a nationwide epiphany about the importance of high-quality public green spaces to our mental and physical health. As a result, UK citizens are calling for these spaces to be prioritised in future legislation and public funding, and are watching intently to see how their representatives will act.
Now is the moment, as a policy maker, to nail your colours to the mast that access to nature should be right for all. Nature is a Human Right will publicly recognise you for backing this idea, and further offer our services to help you to devise and deliver strategies for protecting, creating and maintaining greenery in your constituency.
We want to give your our official stamp of approval! All we ask of you is these three no-brainers:
