In 2018, the 25 Year Environment Plan (25 YEP) was finally published, following further advice from the NCC.


Mainstreaming nature-based health services

The West of England Nature Partnership has published a set of actions to mainstream nature-based health services in its area. This includes helping to “professionalise nature-based health services by promoting and supporting the development of standards that build capacity and help legitimise nature-based health services”. In support of the plan, it recently facilitated a Social Prescribing Network Event and is launching an on-line knowledge sharing platform for people working on matters relating to nature, health and well-being in the West of England.
