Outstanding contribution to environmental sustainability

Anna Gilchrist School of Environment, Education and Development

The Tree Musketeers

Tree Musketeers aims to help various organisations with a range of biodiversity conservation and environmental management projects in Manchester and beyond.

Their army of volunteers gain practical skills and experience whilst spreading their ethos: ‘All for one and one planet for all!’ Shortly after her appointment as a lecturer in 2012, Anna volunteered for the University’s Biodiversity Working Group and Manchester City Council’s Green and Blue Infrastructure Group.

Work with both of these groups motivated her to establish a new student-led volunteering group, to deliver important environmental projects whilst providing students with practical insights into conservation, biodiversity management, and social corporate responsibility practices.
