Established over fifty years ago by a small group of volunteers, Devon Wildlife Trust is the only charity that exists to protect all wildlife in Devon and to safeguard Devon’s unique natural environment. 

Living landscapes

This is based on the Wildlife Trusts’ pioneering work into conserving wildlife at a landscape scale in the terrestrial environment, responding to the challenges of fragmentation and climate change. At its heart is a conviction that wildlife rich areas need to be bigger, better, more numerous and better connected. It encapsulates our aspirations for high quality habitats and the recovery of the species they support. 

Living seas

Approximately half of our biodiversity resides in our surrounding seas. Yet action to protect marine wildlife is decades behind conservation on land. With ocean environments in alarming decline worldwide and pressure on fisheries growing, it is imperative that we act now if we are to stop this trend before it is too late. Our mission includes designating areas for marine wildlife, managing the activities the take place within them and changing fishing practices so that marine wildlife can thrive in UK seas once again. 

Living with nature

This embraces our work with people and wildlife. Our aim is to change hearts, minds and behaviour so that people take decisions in the best interests of wildlife and engage with nature to enrich their lives. This might relate to the way people garden, the food they buy, the water they use or the way they spend their leisure time. We are not just looking for passive support; we want many more people to become actively involved with wildlife conservation.

Our vision at the Network of Wellbeing (NOW) is of a world where everyone’s wellbeing needs are met within the planet’s natural limits.

The Network of Wellbeing is committed to a broad view of wellbeing, as outlined by our wonderful Trustee, Satish Kumar.

We believe that a person’s wellbeing depends on the wellbeing of the community in which they live and work, while the wellbeing of their community depends on the wellbeing of society as a whole, and the long-term health of the natural world on which we all depend.

In our work, we support an active network of people and organisations who care about wellbeing. There are many ways for you to connect with the network, including events such as our Building Wellbeing Together Weekend

Welcome to The Wave. We are a community of people, seeking to share the life changing message of Jesus with the people of Littleham. Within Littleham there is an amazing estate which is diverse and rich in heritage, it has not always had the best reputation, but God loves the estate and the people in it and so do we.

The Wave is a Pioneer Baptist Church plant, What does that mean?

Well, it means that (like many Churches) We believe that God has called us to share the message of Jesus, and the message of salvation, with those who don’t know Him. However, it is pioneer, because it does not look like conventional Church. Our focus is not about a Sunday morning service, instead it is about meeting with people where they are, building community, sharing about Jesus and faith in informal settings, seeking to be mission focussed living as followers of Jesus 24/7.

We are the Woodland Trust.

We want to see a UK rich in woods and trees. Our people work every day to ensure the 1,000 woods in our care grow and thrive. We open up access to our woods free of charge and welcome thousands of visitors each year. 

We have sites across the UK. From forests to little urban woods, we keep our sites open year-round for all to enjoy. Our first wood was in the Avon Valley in Devon and since then our portfolio has grown rapidly to include more than 1,000 woods across the United Kingdom.

Welcome! We are a collective of ‘Devon Doughnut Makers’ on a mission to co-create a first iteration of a Devon Doughnut. We are asking, “Could a dashboard help to provide a picture of how Devon is faring ecologically and economically? Would this be useful to people living and working here? If so, how, and to do what?” 

These early days of the 21st century are profoundly troubled. We have inherited economic theories and structures that are fuelling the rise of a global one percent, and simultaneously driving us towards climate breakdown and ecological collapse. The impacts of these crises are heightened by sharp inequalities of gender and race, of wealth and power, of global South and global North.

An economic transformation that promotes human flourishing for all on a thriving planet is irrefutably and urgently needed.

Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is part of the emerging global movement of new economic thinking and doing that is rising to this challenge. Our aim is to help create 21st century economies that are regenerative and distributive by design, so that they can meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet. We call this Doughnut Economics.

We work with changemakers worldwide – in communities, education, cities, business and government and more – who are turning the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative action and aiming to create systemic change. DEAL is very intentionally an Action Lab: we are focused on turning ideas into action, and on learning with and from others through experiments in co-creating a new economy.
