The way we manage land can help us address many of the most serious challenges facing the UK, from climate change and food security to obesity and community cohesion, according to our report.

As the Government develops its Nature White Paper, Our land: for ever, for everyone sets out our vision for the future of the natural environment.

Based on our experience of managing 254,000 hectares of countryside and over 700 miles of coast, the report shows how land can be managed in a way that protects carbon, cares for wildlife and safeguards water supplies. At the centre of our vision is the aspiration to reconnect people with land – so they can recognise its true value and have a role in caring for it.

We include case studies of our work in some of the UK’s most treasured places including the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, Kinder Scout in the Peak District, and Divis and the Black Mountain in Belfast.

The report includes recommendations for Government and land managers, as progress depends on partnership working, policy reform and smarter use of public money to ensure we pass on a richer, healthier natural environment for future generations.
