Round 2 of the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund is now open for applications and will close on 3 April 2018. More information on eligibility and how to apply can be found here. We are holding two open events where potential applicants can hear more about the fund, how to apply and current projects.

Organised by Scottish Natural Heritage in partnership with ERZ Studio, WSP, and Glasgow City Council this free event is for urban planners, designers, architects, landscape architects, developers, contractors, engineers; house builders and social housing providers, local authorities, and relevant public sector representatives. 

Holyrood Magazine has published an article written by our Chairman, Mike Cantlay, setting out the importance of Green Infrastructure and the positive impact it can have on communities.  You can view it here.

Rather than regarding green infrastructure as a burden on hard-pressed public finances, we should embrace it as an important part of an approach to sustainable healthcare, says Ben Williams.

Statement from Iain Rennick, our Head of Green Infrastructure Fund

Thank you for your interest in the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund (GICEF). We have taken the decision to postpone the launch of our second funding round of the GICEF and the accompanying open events planned for 3 and 7 August in Glasgow and Edinburgh respectively.

Local groups and organisations across Glasgow are invited to submit proposals for temporary activation of any stalled or underused open spaces in the city. Glasgow City Council is looking for innovative and socially engaged projects to help breathe life into a stalled space. Closing date 18 August. Need inspiration?
