What is Nextdoor Nature?

Nextdoor Nature is bringing communities together to help nature flourish where they live and work!

Thanks to £5million funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, Nextdoor Nature will provide people with the advice and support they need to help nature on their doorstep, and leave a lasting natural legacy in honour of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

Every one of us can make a difference to bring back nature and tackle climate change, by taking small actions that add up to big changes, but some of us just need a little bit of help to get started. Nextdoor Nature will be encouraging communities, including minority communities and people with disabilities, to get involved with transformational micro-projects to help nature thrive and make the places where they live, work and visit greener - so that everyone can benefit. 

These fantastic projects could include:

  • Supporting teachers to embrace outdoor learning, giving children the chance to learn in and about nature; 
  • Empowering people to create wilder, green places on their doorsteps, helping nature to thrive; and 
  • Supporting young people to develop the skills they need to act as environmental champions in their local areas. 
We can achieve incredible things when we work together!
