Our vision – More nature for more people across Tees Valley

Here in the Tees Valley, like everywhere, we are totally dependent on nature. Nature provides our clean air, our places to play and relax, offers protection from flooding and helps us to thrive. Unfortunately, nature is under threat and our green spaces are being lost to road building, housing and other developments.

We’ve taken from nature for too long and now we must help nature to recover, with good quality bio-diverse green spaces throughout our region. The good news is that there is a lot that we as individuals can do, that will make a real difference for nature. The more us of who are involved, the better the outcome will be.

We work with policymakers and influencers regionally and nationally to make sure that nature’s needs are at the heart of decision making. TVNP has over 40 member organisations, many of them relying on volunteers, all working across the Tees Valley to help nature to recover.
