It's been a tantalising few months for the LFN community. With COP26 still trending, it feels like the world is waking up. Finally, the momentum to protect our natural world appears to be gathering. Yet without the proper tools in place, we could never have been as effective as we always wanted to be. If we are nature protecting itself, we're evolving. Our skills. Our knowledge. Our passion. It now has a place to blossom and fruit. LFN proudly announces the new Discord Server.
Our broad and brilliant community are based throughout the UK. We're a range of demographics and professions. We required a platform that struck the balance of accessibility, security and high-tech, one with a straightforward learning curve which works beautifully on mobile. Fun and community engagement was also a major consideration. Having used more dedicated project management platforms in the past, it was decided that Discord would become our new home - a place to collaborate, for LFN's network and the core team; Paul, Brontie, Alice and Krish.
There's a whole system in place, designed to ensure you can find the information you need, when you need it, to help LFN defend nature. And what does that mean? Well, everything from creating legal guides and helping with case research, to assisting on funding applications and creating engaging content. Oh, and we've got lots of exciting plans to share... as we enter 2022, our Community Interest Company is set to bloom into a key legal resource for UK nature action groups.
What's more, by joining the LFN Discord Server you'll receive access to community only events and webinars, plus discounts on LFN subcriptions as we expand our services in 2022 and beyond. Being a part of LFN means you can raise your own professional profile, if you like, or simply and quietly contribute to the UK's fastest-growing legal community, specialised and dedicated to nature law. We are lawyers, teachers, students, networkers, creatives and all of the above. But you could be none of those. We welcome diversity in all its forms. We welcome you and your tribe, whoever you are and whatever your aims in defence of nature.
