Nextdoor Nature

Thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Nextdoor Nature will provide people with the advice and support they need to help nature on their doorstep and leave a lasting natural legacy to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Nextdoor Nature is bringing communities together to help nature flourish where they live and work!

Every one of us can make a difference to bring back nature and tackle climate change, by taking small actions that add up to big changes. Nextdoor Nature will be encouraging communities to get involved with transformational micro-projects to help nature thrive and make the places where they live, work and visit greener - so that everyone can benefit.

Nextdoor Nature Swansea aims to work with communities in areas of Swansea with less access to greenspaces to give people the skills and opportunity to take ACTION for nature. The core aim is to give local communities the tools to decide on what happens in the project and drive sustainable change in their neighbourhood (and continue to do so once the project ends). Project actions could include: enhancing existing local greenspaces, establishing new green corridors in areas of nature deprivation, rewilding school grounds, or naturalising highly urbanised or unused areas - but we're waiting to hear from YOU!

If you have any ideas about how you could bring more nature to your community, let us know in the form below.
