People Need Nature

Nature Doesn't Need People, But People Need Nature.


People Need Nature is a charity which highlights the positive relationship between people and nature; and the many benefits that nature provides to us.


We are especially interested in nature as a source of inspiration; the Spiritual value of nature; and the value of nature in public policies.


We are focused on achieving long term positive change for nature, rather than short term fixes.


Although not a membership based charity, we work with a wide range of groups and organisations, as funding partners and in collaboration on activities in pursuit of our aims.


We work with arts organisations including the Poetry Society; with landowners including the Duchy of Cornwall; and with other charities including Sustain.
