The grant funded period will help Nature Vibezzz increase its network and opportunities regarding future heritage focused community projects. Providing us with a platform to reach, inspire and engage with a wider diverse range of people in historical / natural heritage.
Nature Vibezzz shall work with local community groups and other partner organisations developing projects and exploring new potential community projects, enabling Nature Vibezzz to run future community projects that motivate, preserve and inform people about their local historical / natural heritage.
