Today marks 100 days until the General Election on May 7th. So it’s time to start thinking about what you’re voting for, and which issues matter the most to you. In the run up to polling day The Wildlife Trusts have joined forces with the RSPB and many other partners to make one Big Ask: we’re asking you to cast your vote for nature.
The Act For Nature campaign is calling for a Nature and Wellbeing Act to be included in all political parties’ manifestos; for nature to be put front and centre in the big decisions that affect the United Kingdom. Health, planning, education, community: all of our every day issues have vital links to the natural world, and we know how vastly improved our lives can be when we make space for nature and wildlife.
Every week for the next eight weeks we’re going to be blogging about how the different aspects of our work improve people’s lives, and why we believe that all of them make the case that we should all Act For Nature. We’ll be hearing from a different member of staff each week, and exploring many different facets of our work. The blogs will be posted at 8pm every Thursday, so make sure that you’re following this blog to receive them all.
