The London Climate Change Partnership, in partnership with the MESH climate services network, organized this online event during London Climate Action Week about green infrastructure to promote health, well-being, and climate resilience in indoor and outdoor building environments.
With everyone talking about the importance of green space for health and especially in light of COVID-19 (but precious little about specifics and practical solutions), we want to promote the practical learning from projects that could point to specifics of how to use greening for health, well-being, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
We also explored opportunities to support implementation of green space for people and nature – including through innovative funding mechanisms.
