Inspiring and engaging communities in their local green spaces.
Access to green spaces is not equal across the population of England. People living in the most deprived areas are less likely to live in the greenest areas, and will, therefore, have less opportunity to gain the health benefits of green space compared with people living in the least deprived areas.
We have created educational resources to build a nature trail in a park, for use by local school children and their families. By involving children and community members in creating a nature trail we will educate and hopefully engage them with their local greenspaces. From this, they will be encouraged to use their greenspaces more and bring their families along with them.
