Pledge to take action to help nature and the climate

Pledge to take action to help nature and the climate

When it comes to taking action for climate change and nature recovery, there’s plenty we can all do.

Here at the South Downs National Park Authority, we’re working with land owners and managers to identify new sites for ReNaturing – increasing the amount of land managed for nature from 25% to 33% by 2030.

With some 117,000 who live and work in the National Park, with an additional 5 million people living within 5km of the National Park, the power of individual action is not to be underestimated.

We’re inviting everyone to sign-up to as many pledges as they want to, to take action for nature and the climate.

We’ll keep a running total of how many actions people have signed-up for, showing how collective action can make a huge difference.

Tell us what action you’re taking to help nature and climate – sign-up to win!

Register which pledges you’re signing up for below and automatically be entered into a draw to win a year’s membership to The Wildlife Trust or a family ticket to Marwell Zoo. 

Full terms and conditions for this competition can be read here.

If you’re visiting one of our visitor centres in Midhurst or at Seven Sisters Country Park you can also pick up a ‘Pledge & Plant’ postcard.

Tick off your pledges as you complete them and when you’re done plant the postcard and enjoy the beautiful wildflowers which will grow!
