The membership of the Ecosystems Knowledge Network is its strength. Many of our over 2,000 members are directly involved in managing areas of land and water in view of the multiple benefits the environment provides for people. They are already working to fulfil our vision.
Others are in our Network to learn more about the role that they might play in managing the environment as an asset with benefits for everyone.
We are a network for a wide range of professionals and volunteers. They range from park rangers to public health specialists, from land valuers to landscape architects, and from community leaders to conservationists.
This is what our members say:
“Participated in your health and nature webinar…this was really informative in terms of reading material, case studies and lessons learned.” Staff member, UK conservation charity.
“Continue to connect practitioners, policy makers and academics…the Ecosystems Knowledge Network is the first place I go for information!” UK local authority officer.
You can read about our impact and outcomes elsewhere on this website.
Here is a summary of the sectors represented in our membership.
We are for the benefit of people in the UK: 91% of our members work in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We benefit from having members outside the UK as well; we are interested in learning from how the environment is managed as an asset in other parts of the world, and sharing ideas and experience arising in the UK.
The geographical distribution of our UK members around the UK is shown in the figure below.
If you are not already a member, join today. Membership is free and open to all.
