Think big locally

Why Biodiversity & Nature?

Healthy ecosystems underlie all aspects of our wellbeing, either directly or indirectly. We cannot live in towns and cities independently of nature: our dependency on nature enables us to live in towns and cities. We need to think differently about the role of biodiversity within our lives, and go beyond traditional ideas of conserving nature in remote locations. Ingenious new approaches are required locally to alleviate the pressures of urban living by integrating nature into the heart of our built environment. The benefits to our personal health and local communities are too big to ignore.

Achieving The Impossible Dream
