In 2019 Natural Cambridgeshire launched its ambition to Double Nature across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to deliver a greatly enhanced environment where nature and people thrive and businesses prosper. That ambition has now been taken up as a policy objective by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and has the support of the local authorities across the area.
Over 20 young farmers, ranging from ages 11 to 26 joined Cambridgeshire County Councillors, Elisa Meschini (deputy lead) and Phillipa Slatter, Helen Dye of Natural Cambridgeshire and other guests to enjoy a presentation and talk by Sarah and Martin, followed by a farm walk.
The Cambridge Nature Network, one of six priority landscape projects identified by Natural Cambridgeshire, has received a boost with an award of £425,000 from Natural England’s Nature Recovery Programme. The aim of the Network is to halt the decline in biodiversity across Cambridge and the surrounding countryside, to improve climate resilience and enable nature to recover, while benefiting public wellbeing
The Environmental Audit Committee in its report published on 30 June 2021 found that existing Government policy and targets are inadequate to address plummeting biodiversity loss.
With the support of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Future Parks, applications are sought for local nature-based projects that enable greater community engagement with nature and public green space.
Our Vision is to secure a sustainable future where our green spaces can thrive, helping people lead happy, healthy lives for generations to come.
