National Parks: supporting people, places, climate and nature National Parks England (NPE) has published a report showcasing some of the pioneering and innovative projects within the National Parks, revealing how these special landscapes have a unique role to play in our daily lives.
With the Government currently consulting on the Landscapes Review, National Parks reveal how we have been responding to the challenges faced with a global pandemic, climate and biodiversity crises, and delivering real change on the ground.
Andrew McCloy, Chair of National Parks England said:
From the restoration of upland peat bogs across northern England to an ambitious national partnership connecting young people with nature; from pioneering approaches to sustainable transport and tourism to drawing up nature recovery blueprints for all our National Parks - protected landscapes have a unique role in delivering a green recovery, and helping our nation meet the challenges of the Nature and Climate Emergencies.
National Parks are cherished landscapes that are there for the benefit of all of us. We are responding to unprecedented modern challenges, working at scale and across conventional boundaries with a wide range of partners. Our report shows how we are delivering tangible and practical outputs that makes a difference for nature and for people’s lives.
The opportunity for National Parks to provide lasting solutions for people and nature has never been greater. We will continue working with partners supporting nature, climate and people, but need the resources and tools to make this happen at the speed and scale that’s critical.
Some of the projects National Parks highlighted in the report include:
