This discussion, part of our towards resilience series, explores the inequalities in access to green spaces and how communities can play a key role in addressing this issue on a local and national scale.
COVID-19 has shown many of our systems to be fragile in the face of crisis. In many cases, community groups across the country have stepped in to support local residents during the pandemic, demonstrating the value of local knowledge and networks when responding to uncertainty and disruption.
This event, co-hosted with Friends of the Earth, is the third in a series looking at how we can reimagine our fragile systems and put more power and resources into the hands of communities to ensure a more resilient future.
