Great Open Spaces: Environment Reception

A reception to celebrate our great open spaces and discuss the Government’s plans for safeguarding them


As ‘guardians and trustees’ of the Earth, we will celebrate what Baroness Thatcher saw as a key element of conservatism: the protection and appreciation of our natural environment. Regular interaction with the natural world has links to improving mental health, providing a break from fast-paced urban life and giving our children space to play outdoors. This event will celebrate this Government’s prioritisation of nature and wildlife and discuss future plans to enhance this protection.
