Woodland Protection

The Climate Crisis

The gloval Climate Crisis is something that threatens the very fabric of society. At present there is destruction of ancient and natural woodland on an unprecedented scale. This problem may be seen to be minor, but the impact is huge. The ongoing destruction of our natural woodlands has resulted in a devastation of the numbers of species vital to our survival, including insectrs, pollinators, and small animals.

The loss of these species is well known, but far too few projects are currently underway to protect these vital areas of biodiversity.

We are fundraising to purchase an established woodland and hold it in trust for the people of the UK. We make several promises including to never sell the woodland, to never develop it, and to only make changes that are positive for increasing biodiversity and the security of the area.

Our First Woodland Project

Our first project is based in Kent, South East UK. We are looking to purchase an established woodland and keep it in trust for the people of the UK, protecting it from damage and potential destruction from developers. We will also work to improve the land to create a wildlife haven, including natural homes from pollinators, insects, and larger animals.

Sheltered and set just below the highest point of the sandstone ridge high above Kent and Sussex wooded countryside Chowning Bank Wood has a fine collection of mature oaks. The ‘bank’ is to the south and drops down to the level area. Most of the wood is, in spring, covered in blubells; ferns, wood sorrel and other woodland plants are seen in most parts.

Hazel coppice, potential dormouse habitat, is present in the shrub layer. Much of the wood is chestnut coppice and is an ideal source of wooden poles for shelter building or fencing posts and wood products. There is enough ash, a perfect woodfuel, to provide a continual source for home woodburners. An internal track runs inside the wood from the ride-stop to the far boundary. There are clearings off this.

There is evidence of Iron Age activities with the Hill Fort further over to the east. No doubt residents of the fort would have foraged over this wood, perhaps wild food for them, fodder for their animals, wood for their fires and buildings? This area seems to be the boundary of two tribes, the Regneses and the Cantiaci. Perhaps they didn’t get on so one of them needed a Hill Fort.

Looking Long Term

We want to establish a network of woodlands across the UK, all protected from the devastation to our native plant and animal species. We want these to act as wildlife havens – safe spaces for the rejuvenation of the alreadys decimated species native to our country.

In time, we hope that as the network increases, we want to work with surrounding land owners to enable new woodlands to expand on these currently established areas.

While it is important for us to plant new trees, it is even more important to keep established woodlands and forests, as they have a far greater range of biodiversity than new plantations will have for over 50 years. Protecting this is core to our beliefs that natures needs our help, but we need nature more than it needs us.

10 Global Problems

April 22nd, 2017 Posted by Ideas, Intuitive Change 0 thoughts on “10 Global Problems”

Intuitive Change exists to make the world a better place, through actions great and small. To this end, we have identified the “10 biggest global problems” on which to focus our efforts. These broad categories will provide the inspiration on how to make our mark on the world.

The problems will be approached through a multitude of projects for each problem, targeting potential areas across the entire world.

The list we have devised is, in alphabetical order:

  1. Access to clean drinking water
  2. Access to education
  3. Access to food
  4. Access to healthcare
  5. Climate Change
  6. Decline of animal and bee populations
  7. Gender equality/inequality
  8. Global poverty
  9. Population growth
  10. Power and electricity, including development of clean and renewable power sources

In response to this list, we will work tirelessly to create projects aimed at reducing the impact of each, reducing the global burden of them all.

Welcome To Intuitive Change

Welcome to Intuitive Change

Welcome to Intuitive Change, a not-for-profit environmental company that has a single purpose – To make the world a better place.

Intuitive Change is, legally, structured to be ‘not for profit’, having be created as a ‘private company limited by guarantee’. This means we are unable to make a profit, pay dividends, or use money for anything other than our purpose – protecting and improving the environment.

How We Help The World

We aim to do this through creating and completing projects that will improve the world in some aspect, from small projects to large-scale operations, we aim to constantly ask “what needs fixing, and how can we fix it?”

Intuitive Change projects aim to solve a problem, not always to just directly fundraise for a single group or charity. We have identified 10 Global Problems and will work to reduce their impact on The World.

Often, we find that through central fundraising, and then distribution to smaller charities and not-for-profit organisations, the return for contributions is greatest. Large Charities have vast overheads, including huge marketing budgets and increasingly alarming executive pay rates, with an ever-reducing proportion of donations actually making it to the intended destination.

All projects we work on run from concept through to completion and delivery. They are funded through a combination of the donation of 100% of profits from our consultancy work, paired with donations from the public, businesses or charities and trusts who wish to align their outlook on the future with ours.
