Nature Away Days
“I really enjoyed getting out into nature and away from my desk! It was lovely to chat and get to know people that I don’t normally work with. I’d love to do it again in the future.”
Our Nature Away Days are designed for local businesses who want to create spaces where nature has the opportunity to thrive and which showcase the role of nature-based solutions in tackling the climate emergency.
These action-packed, fun-filled days are a great way to connect employees with nature whilst supporting an important cause.
