Nature Recovery Leadership Programme for the North of England

“We can’t regenerate nature without collaboration between people of many different backgrounds and sectors. Collaboration isn’t easy – it is an ability that we learn. This is why Nature North is supporting the Nature Recovery Leadership Programme. It is a great opportunity for emerging leaders across the North to develop that ability and become part of the solution for the recovery of nature.” Mike Innerdale, Regional Director North England, National Trust and Partnership Board Member, Nature North.

Nature North are pleased and proud to support this programme in the north of England.

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Nature Recovery Leadership Programmes for the North of England and Scotland. The programme is being led by Common Purpose UK and aims to gather an exciting, and diverse cohort of emerging leaders whose ambition is to recover and regenerate nature. Generously funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, these programmes mark a significant step forward in supporting and developing the next generation of leaders who will, as their careers progress, be leading the regeneration of nature in the UK.

The programme’s vision is clear: the challenges posed by biodiversity decline demand unprecedented levels of collaboration across sectors and disciplines. Participants will cultivate cross-boundary leadership skills essential for fostering effective collaboration and driving meaningful change in the journey towards nature recovery.

They will recruit a vibrant cohort representing a rich tapestry of disciplines, communities, and backgrounds. We invite individuals who share our passion for restoring and regenerating nature to join this transformative journey.
