Influencing Policy

Through our policy work, we aim to be a powerful voice for our members in influencing nature conservation legislation, policy and practice in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

We accomplish this by:

  • Responding to consultations.
  • Meeting with and writing to decision-makers.
  • Releasing position papers.
  • Setting up dedicated policy working groups for England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland (including Republic of Ireland).
  • We also have a Strategic Policy Panel who mainly focus on Brexit-related activities.
