We face a climate emergency, catastrophic nature loss, rising obesity levels, a mental health crisis and widening health inequalities. Enabling more people to walk and be in contact with nature can help tackle these challenges.
Our green spaces encourage people to get outside and get active - whether it’s a city park or a National Park, the local footpath network or the new England Coast Path. They improve our health and happiness and help us relax and unwind. They are where we spend time with family, feel close to nature or connect to our history and heritage.
But access to nature is not equal. We need urgent action to bring the benefits of nature to everyone. That will take investment, ambition and political leadership.

Our landscapes – and the path network that crosses and connects them – are national assets that everyone should be able to enjoy. We have a duty to nurture these places so that everyone benefits from them now and into the future.
If you'd like to help enable more people to walk and be in contact with nature, why not share our manifesto with your local candidates when they knock on your door or send them a link to it via social media?
This manifesto has been produced for the general election on 12 December 2019 and is focused on the UK parliament.
