Green space is increasingly recognised and promoted for its social and environmental benefits – including health and well-being, as a sanctuary for habitats and species, and for its ability to keep us cool and mitigate flooding. It’s also a key component of our sports and recreation facilities.
However, as our climate changes and we see higher temperatures and more potential for water restrictions, how can we make sure that our greening strategies are resilient?
This discussion, organised by the LCCP and Space4Climate, featured data scientists showcasing what satellite data can tell us about the state of our green spaces and the risks posed under different climate scenarios. Colleagues from policy, conservation, and sports/recreation talked about their work promoting greening and strategies to manage green attractions.
