Does your group or organisation want to develop an environmental project? Invest in Nature Cymru can help point you to resources, support and funding!
Invest in Nature Cymru (previously Environet Cymru) is a
Welsh Government programme working to support any
community group or third sector
organisation wanting to start or develop an environmental
project. We offer a telephone help and
information service and can
signpost you to resources to help you start or
strengthen environmental activities.
Who is Invest in Nature Cymru for?
Invest in Nature Cymru is here to support the staff, volunteers
and trustees of any community group or third sector organisation in
Wales that wants to start an environmental project or to develop an
existing project further.
Why develop an environmental project?
There are many reasons that people start environmental projects
- to conserve wildlife; to create or improve local green spaces, to
reduce energy bills or to engage more with nature. Often these
projects bring significant benefits to skills, well-being and
community cohesion - as well as to an organisation's bank balance.
These projects will also help Wales towards its second
Well-Being Goal - A Resilient Wales with healthy
functional ecosystems and the capacity to adapt to change.
Communities and third sector bodies already play a key role in
raising awareness about, and taking action on, some of our most
pressing environmental challenges such as climate change, species
loss and unsustainable resource use. They also form a fantastic
resource of knowledge, ideas and learning that can help inspire and
support others to develop environmental activities too.
What's on offer?
Invest in Nature Cymru aims to share and promote learning
through networking, regional events and online and telephone
support. Together, even small actions, with the right advice and
support, can have a huge impact so please get involved today!
