This is an awards program to encourage communities to get outdoors and reconnect with nature. This can be anything from school gardening to community tree planting to community growing of fruit and veg. The idea is to give people access to nature and reap the mental and physical benefits of being outdoors as well as helping the environment and tackle climate change.
