Our aims

Link 2 Nature will take a coordinated, landscape scale approach to understanding and prioritising the challenges and opportunities facing our local environment.  It is vital that Link 2 Nature provides support to improve partnership working across sectors to drive positive change and actions for the environment. 

Link2Nature's Strategic Plan 2013-2018 and initial Work Programme was approved by the Board in May 2013.  The Board and Forum will review the Work Programme annually, providing a delivery framework that determines how Link 2 Nature will achieve its aims.
