What is Nature Connected?
Nature Connected is the government approved Local Nature Partnership for the Liverpool City Region (LCR). We bring together public, private and community sector organisations to ensure our natural environment is harnessed to support economic, social and environmental goals.
Nature Connected represents Liverpool, Knowsley, Halton, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. We have strong links with Cheshire, Lancashire and Manchester and the Atlantic Gateway area. We work closely with other city region decision making bodies to achieve our aims.
The role of Nature Connected was approved by Defra in 2012 and includes four main areas:
- Promoting and valuing the natural environment
- Consolidating and coordinating existing groups
- Developing, maintaining and using a robust evidence base
- Providing strategic influence
