A Woodland Microadventure

 

How does this sound for an idea?

Head out one evening with a few friends for a delicious meal and a few drinks.

If you like the sound of that, why not try something similar to the video below this week as part of the celebrations for National Tree Week?

It’s also a chance to raise awareness for the National Tree Charter. It is a campaign to make the true value of trees and woods to society visible, and then to protect the benefits they bring for future generations by establishing a Tree Charter.
The charter will be a set of guidelines and principles for society to follow to ensure trees and woods overcome the pressures they currently face and continue to give us benefits. Its mandate will come from the thousands of people who contribute to it (currently collecting stories and surveying target audiences) and the hundreds of thousands of people who support it (building a movement for trees in 2017). This sounds dry, but the overall aim of the campaign is to make people feel excited about trees, woods and all the ways we can enjoy them and benefit from them if we look after them.
Add your voice at the #TreeCharter petition here.

You don’t need much stuff or time. Just pack this gear and whatever you fancy for dinner…

  1. Hope you had a great Christmas Alastair. I wish I had come across your blog a long time ago.

    Working the 9-5 evenings were spent watching tv being lazy.

    Since then with your influence, I make the most of everyday as an adventure.

    My brother and I are soon moving to South Africa to explore for six months and intend to enlighten all South Africans about “micro adventures” and will share your views across our blog also as we progress.

    All the best! And thank you once again
