Allowing Nature to Thrive in Cities – Local Nature Recovery Summit

Under the Environment Act 2021, Local Nature Recovery Strategies (LNRS’s) are required in every English county as part of the Government’s 25 Year Environment Plan to reverse the decline of nature. 

But, how could a LNRS be applied across London and how can you help to shape it?  Join us for this event co-hosted by The Golden Leaf of London and London National Park City.

The speakers will explain what LNRS could look like and share how land owners and community groups can contribute and make a case for their area to be part of the strategy.
