Welcome to the website of the Yorkshire and Humber Environment Forum; a unique partnership providing independent expertise to represent shared environmental concerns in Yorkshire and the Humber.

On our site you will find news and events, as well as details of projects, areas of research, current consultations, analysis, comment and guidance. You can also sign up to our popular monthly newsletter which has been described as “reasonably short” and “sometimes illuminating”.

If you have arrived at this website looking for the Environment Hub, the Yorkshire and Humber Biodiversity Forum or the Environment Funding Focus Group then please don't panic as you are in the right place.

The Environment Hub nolonger exists as a stand alone web resource but YHEF remain online as your first port of call for environmental news, information, research and reporting. If you have any questions relating to our role in the new world order then contact
