The role of urban green and blue space for climate and nature action: workshop and webinar

Findings from our Future-proofing the Greenway work were launched in a workshop in East Belfast in October, and discussed in a webinar with additional speakers in November.

GroundsWell and EastSide Greenways in Belfast commissioned a collaborative process to look at Connswater Community Greenway through the lens of climate resilience, adaptation, nature conservation and self sustainability. The report summarises the findings and recommendations of that process, researched and facilitated by Landscape Architects, The Paul Hogarth Company.  

The findings were launched in October, at a workshop in East Belfast with a diverse group of stakeholders. We discussed the findings with stakeholders, and worked with them to identify key actions we could take to implement the recommendations identified in the report.



Following the workshop, we wanted to further disseminate the findings to a larger audience. Thus, speakers were brought together in a webinar in November to address the findings and to discuss the role of urban green and blue space for climate and nature action. Speakers included James Hennessey (The Paul Hogarth Company), Jonathan Bell (RSBP), Jennifer McKinley (QUB), and Julie Procter (greenspace scotland).
