What is happening in the National Park?

We and our local partner organisations are committed to doing our bit to help to tackle climate change.   Moving towards a situation where the whole National Park is ‘carbon neutral’ (where the amount of greenhouse gas emissions generated in the national park each year is matched or exceeded by the amount of carbon being taken out of the atmosphere) is one of the 6 ambitions for 2040 set out in the Yorkshire Dales National Park Management Plan 2019-24.

The Management Plan also sets out a series of more specific objectives that local partners are now working to achieve, including many that will contribute directly to tackling climate change.  Further information and details of the progress we’re making can be found through the links below:
