Power for Nature

Our new fundraising campaign Power for Nature will work as part of a global collective to empower more volunteers to protect and care for our planet.

We will enthusiastically join in and protect parks and community gardens, Local Nature Reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, school and hospital grounds, waterways, wetlands and woodlands.

Our work is not done yet

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.

In the words of our Vice President Sir David Attenborough

 

Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about that.

The next steps

TCV has changed over the decades, but we have held firm to one key belief: conservation volunteering is great for people and communities as well as nature. When the Council for Nature founded The Conservation Corps in January 1959, it aimed to give young people a sense of purpose, personal achievement, and to inspire them to care for conservation.

Our new fundraising campaign Power for Nature will do just that by working together as part of a global collective to empower more volunteers to protect and care for our planet.

Our promise to you, is that we will continue to inspire people across the UK to volunteer and help to improve local environments and biodiversity. We will offer more volunteering opportunities, share our skills and knowledge and give volunteers the right tools to get the job done.

We will enthusiastically join in and protect parks and community gardens, Local Nature Reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, school and hospital grounds, waterways, wetlands and woodlands.

Together we will be part of a global movement making a significant difference towards the protection of our planet, turning talk into global volunteering action.
