There are simple, cost-effective steps that you can take to do your bit for a Resilient Wales which will also save money, improve staff and volunteer morale and contribute to healthier and vibrant communities.

Wales faces a number of challenges now and in the future, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Over 60% of the species we know about are in decline and many species are in danger of becoming extinct in Wales so any action you take can make a real difference.

A healthy natural environment is essential to social and economic well-being and therefore one of the 7 goals set out in the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act is for A Resilient Wales, which focuses on the natural environment.

What can you do?

Environet's 'Doing Your Bit for a Resilient Wales' toolkit, co-produced with Wildlife Trusts Wales, sets out easy steps to delivering a Resilient Wales and where to draw inspiration.

Incorporating nature into your organisation's premises and decision-making can be simpler than you think. Remember that, wherever you are, you are part of an ecosystem, a piece in the natural landscape, so try to look after what's next door.
