Watch this Green Space Project: Transforming Urban Green Spaces

24th October to 29th November
Green spaces are vital for human health and the health of our environment. Take part in this project to investigate how we can make the best use of our urban greenspaces to benefit communities and the environment!

Green spaces are essential for the health and well-being of people and the planet. They also provide a space to bring communities together and communicate the value of nature in urban environments.

Recognising and protecting these benefits can be challenging, especially when these spaces are under threat from developments that pose more short-term economic incentives. In Manchester, this has led to a rapid decline in Green Spaces. Reversing this requires action at every level, from governmental protection and funding to grass-roots community action.

In this project, you and your team will become Green Space champions and work to protect and enhance green spaces in Manchester. You can approach this absolutely any way you would like, the more creative the better! Think about what skills, knowledge, and passions you have and how you can use this to champion green spaces in Manchester. 

During this project, you will scope out an idea or initiative that you could implement in Manchester to enhance green spaces and how local communities use and interact with them. With the help of Ardwick Climate Action Group (and potentially other partners), you can then make your plan a reality and bring real change to the local community!
