Being from Merthyr and amongst the Brecon Beacon national park, it’s hard to imagine that one day it may no longer be there. I’m hoping that this project will help educate me on more ways to help protect green spaces as they’re so vital, especially now with Covid-19.

Hi! I am currently completing a master’s degree in Sustainable Development at UWE and have a marketing degree from Plymouth Uni. Having lived in Plymouth, I have been lucky enough to experience Dartmoor National Park and all its mysterious wonders, and so I am thrilled to be able to support Pedal 4 Parks in their mission to raise awareness for the protection of these precious green spaces. I feel nature and the outdoors are crucial for our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing, particularly over lockdown, and so we owe it to ourselves and to future generations to strive for sustainability.

I’m currently in my final year of studying Environmental Science at the University of York. Green spaces have always been important to me as I find they are a way to escape into nature, and national parks are a huge part of this. Growing up in the county of Herefordshire I was always surrounded by green spaces and would frequently go with my family to the Brecon Beacons or Snowdonia national parks. Whether it was riding my bike, walking or watching the wildlife, it was always guaranteed a good time! I’m so excited to be able to support Pedal4Parks and help reach out to partners who share the same mission of protecting these areas. Particularly since the national lockdowns, being surrounded by nature and being outdoors has proven to be so beneficial for peoples’ happiness and mental health, there is no excuse why everyone should be doing what they can to conserve these green spaces and national parks.
