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?

We are well on the way to our Learning Lessons event for organisations who have applied for Green Infrastructure Funding, staff from sister Strategic Interventions, partners from Scottish green infrastructure (GI) network, organisations that are potential applicants in future funding rounds.

As we move to the delivery phase of the Green Infrastructure project, opportunities are emerging to tell others about what we are doing, and in turn to learn from their experience. In May, we were pleased to be invited to attend a major conference in Essen organised by German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
