Green Minds is an Urban Innovative Actions (UIC) funded project which aims to better connect people to green and blue spaces within and around the city of Plymouth.
This innovative project aims to improve the quality and condition of green and blue infrastructure. It also aims to positively enhance people’s interaction and involvement in these spaces, recognising that spending time in green and blue spaces has positive health and wellbeing benefits.
This winter, Green Minds has organised the following online events which may be of interest. The events are free and open to all. Please register your place via the Eventbrite links below.
Tuesday 17 November | Action for Insects (webinar)
Insects make the world go round - pollinating and recycling, managing the soil, preventing any one species dominating (becoming a pest) and a food source themselves for many larger animals. Insects are in decline - rapid decline - due to the way we choose to live. But we know that insect populations can recover swiftly with a little help and space. We can make different choices and help reverse the decline in insects. Starting at home and within Plymouth’s green and blue spaces we can link to a nationwide change - let's help insects help the world keep turning.
