About the Group
The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Nature will provide a forum for parliamentarians and policy-makers to engage with nature and issues relating to its management and enhancement.
The development of this group fits closely with the goals outlined in legislation and policy from across the UK, which all highlight the need to engage people with nature to experience both its physical and mental health benefits.
CIEEM will provide the Secretariat for the group and will organise a programme of interesting site visits and events to outline the importance of nature for its enjoyment and human well-being, as well as a necessary support system for the economy and society.
The APPG for Nature will hold its Inaugural General Meeting and launch event on 8th July 2019. The theme of the event will be Natural Capital.
During the Inaugural General Meeting, a group of MPs and Peers will be elected as Officers of the group. Barry Gardiner MP has been proposed as Chair.
Check back soon for more updates following the APPG for Nature launch event.
