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.
