Last year, The Conservation Volunteers celebrated; six decades of digging, planting, cutting, citizen-sciencing, path-building, growing, teaching, community-building, chatting, laughing and teamaking – in every type of weather!
Now in 2020, with the celebratory bunting packed away and reflecting on a year that the climate crisis dominated the headlines and public consciousness, it is clear that our work still as important today as it was 60 years ago.
In a year filled with promises for improvements to our natural environment from those in power, it has become apparent that many things have changed in the past six decades, but one thing has remained the same: TCV’s vision of bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.
60 years may be a long time, but our work is not done yet. With the support of our partners and funders, community groups, individual volunteers and donors, we will continue to give everyone the opportunity to make a difference to themselves, their community, and for future generations as we work together as a global collective to protect our planet.
