Success Story

A Peoples Manifesto for Wildlife

A Peoples Manifesto for Wildlife

 
In 2019 we began working with a prominent environmental campaigner and television personality to lead a public affairs campaign building links with policy makers.

We put together a programme of engagement with a range of Parliamentary stakeholders including DEFRA Secretary of State Michael Gove, members of the Environmental Audit Select Committee and 50+ other parliamentarians.

The awareness programme secured National Media Coverage including providing exclusives to national titles and has led directly to ongoing engagement with key select committee and Shadow Cabinet figures.
