North Derbyshire residents urged to save our canals.


North Derbyshire residents are being urged to join a new campaign to help save our canals. Ecologists are worried that city dwellers face a so-called ‘nature deficit’ – putting their mental well-being at risk.

A new campaign, #ActNowForCanals, has been set up in response.

It encourages adults to help identify places where experts and communities can work to revive nature and wildlife, and improve the wellbeing of residents.

Hear from Ecologist Paul Wilkinson and Stewart Moody on the plans.
