Send a ‘Postcard from the Future’ and shape what Surrey Hills should look like

Shape what the Surrey Hills should be like in 2100

Whether you are an avid bird watcher, hiker, horse rider, cyclist, or a lover of scenic views, National Landscapes are at the heart of creating a thriving place for nature and people.

2024 marks the 75th anniversary of the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act which was the foundation for our Protected Landscapes. National Parks and National Landscapes can do so much to help us deal with the impact of climate change and support nature recovery.

The Surrey Hills Board are seeking imaginative thoughts through a 'Postcard from the Future' on what the Surrey Hills could be like 75 years into the future. Embark on a journey to the year 2100 and envision the Surrey Hills as a thriving place for nature and people. Picture the landscape, feel the ambiance, and let your creativity flow in describing the Surrey Hills as a thriving 22nd century landscape for the nation's nature and people.

What can I put on the postcard?

Here are some ideas to consider for your postcard:

  • What the Surrey Hills looks like, are there heathlands, grasslands?
  • What kinds of animals and plants live there?
  • What farms and rural businesses look like in the future?
  • Describe how people and nature can coexist together?
  • New ways people of all interests and abilities can experience nature?

How do I submit my postcard?

You can submit your Postcard from the Future on the Surrey Hills National Landscape website and become a part of shaping the next chapter for the Surrey Hills. Your ideas will help inspire the next Surrey Hills Management Plan, which is the blueprint for this cherished National Landscape for the next 5 years to come.
