What is the Year of Environment?

 

In 2018, the Government launched its 25 year plan for the environment, pledging that we would be the first generation to leave our environment in a better state than we found it.

As part of the plan, 2019 was declared as a national Year of Green Action across the UK. The Liverpool City Region’s Local Nature Partnership, Nature Connected, is taking the initiative, along with the Combined Authority, the Environment Agency and Natural England, to help deliver a Liverpool City Region focused Year of Action for the Environment, working with a broad range of partners from different sectors across the City Region. In the context of rising concern and regard for the environment, we are all committed to work together to ensure that:

“2019 will be a year of green action across Liverpool City Region where people from all backgrounds will have the opportunity to be involved in projects that improve the natural world. Our aim is to leave a better environment for the next generation to inherit and make our area one of the best places in the country to live, work and flourish.”

A Year of Environment Brochure sets out aims and themes for the Year and a calendar of activities/events is available so that you can get involved.
