Campaign to Protect Rural England Standing up for your countryside

Skip to navigation


Wednesday 26 June 2019

Venue:  The Studio, 7 Cannon Street, Birmingham, B2 5EP

CPRE National Office induction days are held three times a year at our office in London and are open to any new staff and volunteers who would like to attend from the CPRE network of districts, branches and regions. Induction days focus on the role of National Office and CPRE's overarching structure, ambitions, operations and resources across the organisation.

These induction days are an excellent opportunity to learn about CPRE as a national organisation. We look at the history and structure of CPRE, the role of National Office and how we operate (including communications, fundraising, membership and development), key areas of our campaigning work, and the resources available to branches. The day is a great way to get a few ideas for your work at the grassroots of CPRE and to meet people from other branches as well as national office staff whom you can ask questions throughout the day.

The three dates for the 2019 induction days will be:

Tuesday 12th February
Tuesday 21st May
Tuesday 8th October

CPRE AGM and Conference: 26-27 June. The Studio, Birmingham, B2 5E

We are delighted to invite you to our very first combined AGM and Conference. You are welcome to come to either of the days or, even better, both!
 Day 1: The day will include the AGM in the morning, followed by the launch of the Strategic Plan 2020-2026. In the afternoon, we will be running workshops showcasing projects and activities across the CPRE network. We invite you to join us for a drinks reception at the end of the day, where there will be a short volunteer awards presentation. In the evening, the national Trustee Board and Senior Management Team then invite you to join them for dinner at San Carlo in central Birmingham. 
Day 2: We will welcome Emma Bridgewater, who will celebrate our new Purpose and Brand and the University of Derby who will be showcasing their work on Nature Connectedness and Wellbeing. There will be more opportunities to take part in more workshops across a variety of topics.
Booking: All active volunteers and members of staff are invited! Please spread the word!
Workshops: There are between 7-8 workshops taking place on each day, with some repeated to allow people to attend their top choices as far as possible. If you have multiple people attending from your local group or region, try to space yourselves out to cover as many workshops as possible.
 Keynote speech: Our keynote speech on Day 2, 'Pathways to Nature Connectedness and Wellbeing', will be delivered by researchers from the University of Derby. Nature connectedness is a psychological construct that describes a person’s relationship with nature. Being connected to nature brings wellbeing benefits to people, and also for nature through increased pro-environmental behaviours. This talk will introduce the pathways to nature connectedness and how they can be applied to improve connection with the rest of the natural world.
We’re very much looking forward to an inspirational and collaborative conference that will launch a new era for CPRE, and hope you’ll be able to join us!
