We are so excited that the Lake District Foundation, on behalf of the Lake District National Park Partnership, is one of 12 organisations selected to take forward a development proposal to the Heritage Horizons Awards, competing for a share of £50 million.
Our proposal is titled:
Secured for our future – Nature, World Heritage and Farming in the Lake District
It focuses on 3 closely connected areas:
- Nature Recovery and Climate Resilience, delivering farmer and community led nature recovery, providing bigger, better and more joined up habitats, storing carbon and increasing resilience to climate change.
- Securing and futureproofing our farming heritage and culture in our World Heritage Site
- Engaging a new generation with our work and with the Lake District, which has always been a place of inspiration for the nation.
