The Green Infrastructure Partnership (GIP) is a rapidly growing network of more than 1,000 people and organisations that support the creation, enhancement and promotion of green infrastructure (GI) in the UK to improve quality of life, health, ecological diversity, resilience to climate change and economic attractiveness.
The GIP enables people to share research, innovation, news and best practice via newsletters and events. Its strategic focus is to influence key decision-makers by ensuring they have appropriate evidence about the value of GI to inform their decisions.
The GIP was launched by Defra in October 2011 as an outcome of the government’s Natural Environment White Paper, The Natural Choice: Securing the Value of Nature. The TCPA has been running the GIP since 2014, with no government funding, but sponsorship and in-kind support from: Arup, the Landscape Institute, the Land Trust, the National Trust, Natural England, the Canal & River Trust, Groundwork and Forest Research.
Benefits of sponsoring GIP include excellent networking opportunities across the sector; invitations to key meetings, events and presentations; and the chance to help promote green infrastructure at a strategic level nationally.
