South Derbyshire Environmental Forum

The South Derbyshire Environmental Forum is an informal network of local environmental groups, parish councils and people with an interest in the environment.

The forum was formed to:

  • pool ideas and resources
  • get together for workshops and meetings to share information and learn new skills (for example, wildlife recording)
  • visit each other’s sites and projects to share best practice
  • improve the appearance of our towns and villages, improve local biodiversity and for people to enjoy themselves in the process.

The forum holds three to four official meetings a year and each group also organises projects and events in its own village or area.

Groups can use the forum to contact each other and keep up to date with each other's projects - a chance to share best practice and resources.

Visit the environmental volunteering page to see how you can get practical support from local businesses to complete tasks on your sites or around your local area.

To join the forum, contact the Environmental Education Project. Details of forum meetings and other relevant information are sent out by email each quarter.
