The charity making life better by water

Climate Change Pack

Our canals and rivers provide an incredibly important natural corridor for nature and are some of the most bio-diverse spaces in the country. This pack will help you learn how we're responding to the global issue that is climate change.

Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge the world has ever faced, and things will get worse if we do nothing.

The good news is we have the knowledge and technology to reduce our impact on the climate, and ease the pressures on the world's most vulnerable places, people and wildlife.

We have been delivering climate change response work for many years here at the Trust, and with this pack, you too can look at ways we protect things like our heritage buildings, our wildlife, our energy consumption and how you can also have a positive impact.

Activities to download

Some of our activities involve getting together with other people or visiting your local canal or river. Please follow national and local government guidance at all times. Consider saving the activity for a later date if there are lockdown restrictions in your area.

If you're visiting the waterways, please keep your distance from both other people and moored boats. There may be people living aboard who are self-isolating or shielding.
