Land management and biodiversity are climate issues

Want to do something
about climate change?

Keep up-to-date with our campaigns, advocacy, projects and climate action.

We bring together people in Hope Valley who want to take practical action to address climate change and biodiversity loss. 

We want to understand the current status of carbon sequestration in our largely agricultural landscape and find the most cost-effective ways to improve it.  

We focus on three major habitats: hedges and trees, peatland, and grassland.

Fundamental to our approach is partnerships with organisations that can help us deliver work on the ground including the Peak District National Park Authority (PDNPA), Moors for the Future, the Hope Valley Farmer cluster and the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust.
