The idea of ‘Think Global, Act Local’ has been around for many years now but with heightened coverage of our changing climate in the media now, it’s really important to be able to turn your concern about global environmental issues into local action.
Local people play a vital role in the Dorset National Landscape through parish and community planning, volunteering and direct hands on activity – all helping conserve and enhance the natural beauty of the area. We also have a good record of diverse organisations and businesses working together to do their bit for the environment – it is often the most unlikely partnerships that have found creative solutions to the knottiest of landscape issues!
If you are keen to get outdoors, you can try your hand at traditional skills like dry stone walling and hedgelaying to make a difference. But you don’t have to be physically active or with lots of spare time … there is also a lot you can do from the comfort of your sofa at the end of the day!
