Our primary role is to:

Connect groups and individuals delivering environmental
projects in the Highlands and provide opportunity for sharing knowledge

and individuals to develop and deliver local environmental projects in the
Highlands; and to increase community participation in debates and
decision-making concerning

  • biodiversity

  • climate

HEN supports community development and empowerment as it
relates to these issues.

    and support a sense of community amongst groups and individuals carrying out
    environmental activities at a local level
  • co-ordinate
    and enable the sharing of information and expertise

    and publicise ways for communities and small groups to contribute to land
