This online conference, held Thursday 21 September 2023, explored ways of maintaining green infrastructure in perpetuity. It featured contributions from Lord Heseltine, Francesca Osowska (CEO of NatureScot), and Catherine Ward Thompson, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the Edinburgh College of Art.
Public spaces that are well cared for, with mature trees and new planting, create a much-needed sense of hope, a feeling that someone cares and that this place will get better as time goes by. Cared-for parks, green spaces and trees add to people’s sense of wellbeing – and generate significant economic value.
Organised by the TCPA on behalf of the Green Infrastructure Partnership.
Supported by NatureScot, Greenbelt and the Lady Margaret Paterson Osborn Trust.
