The aim of the 2019 Year of Green Action is to encourage more individuals, communities and businesses to take action to protect, enhance and connect people with the natural environment. By fostering new practice, partnerships and leadership in green enterprise we want to create a legacy of long term environmental action.

This Year of Green Action marks the start of our commitment to increase engagement with the environment and encourage behaviour that will support the achievement of our 25 Year Environment Plan goals. We are actively considering how we can encourage green action beyond this year.
