Webinar: The Plymouth Green Minds project
The SWEEP Investing in Nature for Health project team is pleased to welcome Zoe Sydenham and Jemma Sharman, from the Strategic Planning and Infrastructure department at Plymouth City Council, for the next webinar in our SWEEP Investing in nature for health webinar series.
Zoe and Jemma will be talking about the Green Minds project. More than 30% of Plymouth is green or blue infrastructure and these spaces offer opportunities to benefit communities in the city by supporting health and wellbeing, social value, biodiversity, the local economy and climate resilience. However, budget cuts in local government have reduced the resources available to plan and manage these spaces. Green Minds has been funded by Urban Innovative Actions to address these challenges, enabling Plymouth City Council to trial new approaches to delivering a more integrated planning and management system for urban nature and helping maximise the social value created through sustainable land-use management and nature-based solutions. Zoe and Jemma will talk about some of the alternative methods being trialled in the Green Minds project, such as collective stewardship, to prompt discussion in the Q&A session after the talk.
This webinar is particularly relevant for those with an interest in how investment in the environment can impact public health, from health and social care professionals to local planning authorities.
