Back to our roots

Nature, including human nature, is at the very heart of what we do here at GCP. We respect the planet, just as we respect each other.

Being in nature, whether walking, gardening or open water swimming brings huge benefits for our Members and Volunteers. These outdoor activities are an essential part of our Members’ Programme. And for us, sustainability also comes naturally. We’ve been doing it for years!
