'Observing nature is about looking outwards and helps to anchor us during these distressing times.'
Find it tough to stay connected to nature at the moment?

We must not contribute further to the #ClimateEmergency with more car-dependent development.
We urge @ChrisPincher and @MHCLG to embed sustainable public transport and safer cycling and walking route in the planning system. #VisionForPlanning
We've all appreciated our precious green spaces and heritage sites more over the last year.
A gold-standard planning system would protect and improve these places for the benefit of our communities and local nature. #VisionForPlanning #heritage
Everyone should feel proud of the place they call home.
In our #VisionforPlanning we call on @RobertJenrick to appoint Design Ambassadors to champion good, sustainable design and revoke permitted development rights that have led to poor quality housing.
Our #VisionforPlanning would better protect species and habitats, support nature’s recovery and ensure all new homes are built to zero carbon standards, sooner.
We hope @MHCLG will take tackling the climate and biodiversity crises seriously.
What's your New Year's resolution for the climate crisis? #NYresolutionforclimatecrisis
We all deserve a quality home we can genuinely afford to live in.
The planning system has the potential to solve the housing crisis and build sustainable communities that do not price out local people. @ChrisPincher #VisionForPlanning
Today, we and 17 other organisations launch our #VisionforPlanning - a vision for a gold-standard planning system.
We all agree that communities must be at the heart of decision-making. But the government’s proposals will cut local participation by half.
We are so pleased with the news that all of the @CotswoldWaterPk 177 lakes have been granted SSSI designation. This recognises the national importance of the bird and plant populations, protecting breeding and wintering birds and aquatic plants. https://waterpark.org/natural-england-announces-site-of-special-scientific-interest-sssi-status-for-the-cotswold-water-park/?s=08

Our Chair Patricia: "I will turn down the heating in my house by 1 degree on the thermostat. Nearly 1/3 of UK’s greenhouse gas emissions come from our houses."

A fab example of a Deposit Return Scheme! This is one of the things @CPRE called for in the recent 'Litter in Lockdown' report. We want the Government to commit to putting this in place by the end of 2023 to reduce littering of drinks cans and bottles. https://www.cpreglos.org.uk/what-we-care-about/cleaner-countryside/

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year. Though yesterday's news is not the best start to the year, we are staying positive and will continue to work to protect our beautiful countryside. Our green spaces have never been more important! #joinus #Gloucestershire #countryside
The lovely Bill Bailey on the joys of being in nature. In Orkney and Shetland, NHS doctors prescribe getting out in nature. "Two guillemots every four hours, and if symptoms persist, a long walk across the moor." https://www.cpre.org.uk/opinions/bill-bailey-on-the-joys-of-being-in-nature/
