We are a group of people active in a range of community based organisations and businesses on the Somerset Levels and its catchment. We are actively engaged in promoting a joined up approach to the actions that need to be taken by the whole community of the Somerset Levels to protect our fragile and vulnerable environment.
We believe that people need to take responsibility themselves. We believe that understanding the causes and together looking at the solutions to flooding across the entire catchment will lead to a new vision for rural land use. This will create a more socially, environmentally and economically sustainable future for us all.
We aim to:
- Increase people’s understanding of how the Somerset Levels and its catchment work
- Identify and share actions people can take to revitalise the landscape and safeguard the future.
- Engage people in influencing the decision making about the management of the landscape
- Launch an organisation which can promote the wellbeing of the Levels and its Catchment
