Who we are

We are CPRE, the countryside charity. We want a thriving, beautiful countryside for everyone.

We believe that the Nottinghamshire countryside is for everyone. We know that engaging with our natural environment, especially near to where we live, is vital for our mental and physical health and wellbeing. That includes enhancing and protecting green spaces in urban areas and the green belt. We want to promote the countryside and its communities to enable more people than ever before to benefit from it – including those who have not been able to benefit before.

We want a thriving, beautiful countryside, rich in nature and playing a crucial and beneficial role in our nation’s response to the climate emergency. We are aiming for a countryside that is valued, enjoyed, and understood by, and accessible to everyone, wherever they live, now and in the future.
