Engaging people

London Wildlife Trust has had a long history of volunteering and outdoor learning - and in the last five years, we have focused on engaging a wider breadth of London's communities and young people in London's natural environment.

We have many projects running that provide innovative activities and unique experiences for people to get involved with nature and wild spaces in London.

We have four objectives that focus on engaging people in our work, these are:

Community Engagement

Facilitate the participation of Londoners, especially in areas of social and economic deprivation, in the access to and improvement of their local natural environment and wider green infrastructure.

Outdoor Learning

To enhance outdoor learning opportunities about the natural environment that enable lifelong learning for all Londoners.


To ensure that volunteering at the Trust is two-way process that provides effective support and development for a diverse range of volunteers and, that volunteers add capacity to the Trust though giving their time, expertise and experience to enable the delivery of the Trust’s objectives.

Youth Engagement

Increase young people's awareness of London's biodiversity, particularly those who are disengaged with nature, through interaction with green space and activities which provide inclusive youth engagement that positively respond to the needs of young people across London.
