National Meadows Day: Why saving and protecting wild flower meadows can help deliver a green recovery

A group of organisations involving Plantlife are calling for Government to invest in a scheme that will create tens of thousands of jobs, improve the health of nature, people and the planet, and contribute to a green, sustainable recovery - National Nature Service. We have so much we must do and we need a work force to do it: we must make our open spaces wilder with greater biodiversity; we must mitigate and hold back the impact of climate change through holistic and effective nature based-solutions: flood management, soil regeneration, healthy food systems, we must insulate our houses and accelerate the reduction of emissions; not just carbon but nitrogen, methane, water vapour.
