There is now a MASSIVE body of evidence which shows how important nature is to human health and wellbeing. Access to nature and green spaces significantly improves the health and happiness of our children.
These facts should be continually hitting the news headlines, but sadly, most of the "mainstream" media are doing a pretty poor job of informing the people.
The UK is ranked 189th in the world for looking after it's nature. Surely as a proud nation, we can do better than this?
It's time for communities to stand strong, and it's time for communities to work together across the UK and create a resistance which leads to wholesale change in planning policy. This is not nimbyism. Central government and local councils SHOULD be protecting places of significant value to their people and nature, for the good of all.
Berryhill Fields is just one example, showing why we are failing to protect our health and wellbeing. The site is cherished by the local community and is of significant importance to nature (Described as a "principal birdwatching site" by the West Midlands Bird Club).
However it is earmarked for 1,300 homes, destroying a valued green space and effectively isolating the adjacent Local Nature Reserve, with inevitable consequences for it's wildlife.
The Call to Action
You all have the POWER TO PROTECT NATURE for human health and wellbeing!
1. Please sign and share this UK petition to HELP protect Berryhill Fields.
2. Please add your SUPPORT to this thunderclap and encourage others to do so too. It costs nothing, but gets this important campaign message out to a wider audience, acting as a catalyst for positive change.
3. Use your POWER! Talk to people about the importance of nature to human health & wellbeing. Get involved with your local community groups that are helping to protect green spaces. Support media that highlights important issues that affect all of us, rather than protecting corporate interests.
You are ALL the seeds of positive change! Please SIGN NOW.
Thank you for getting involved and making a difference.
