Green Halo themes

‘To do good you actually have to do something’

(Yvon Chouinard, founder and owner, Patagonia Inc.)

We take as our starting point the natural environment and the benefits that the flora and fauna, watercourses and landscapes of the New Forest National Park provides – its natural capital and ecosystem services.

These help clean our air, provide fresh water and natural food supplies, and benefit both our economy and our health and wellbeing.

Then we ask ourselves how we can ensure that natural capital is not eroded and can therefore help us meet the needs of the economy and our communities, for mutual benefit. We want to ensure that the value of ecosystems services is recognised, and they are protected and improved.

The Partnership is not ‘greenwash’ or purely a talking shop. We are focused on actions which will make a clear difference on the ground, falling under four themes:

1. Supporting the local economy

2. Improving health and wellbeing

3. Encouraging sustainable living

4. Enhancing the natural environment

We learn from innovations, ideas and experiences: from the best examples of urban renewal, regeneration and greening schemes; from landscape scale approaches, habitat enhancements and cultural projects.

We work together to inspire further innovations to improve where we live and work and share these widely to stimulate further action.
