Valuing parks, woodlands and other greenspaces (The Ignition Project)

Closed 1 Feb 2020

Opened 22 Nov 2019

Overview

The Ignition Project brings together 12 partners from Greater Manchester’s local government, universities, non-governmental organisations, and businesses. We aim to address the emergency caused by climate change. We are investigating how we can fund the delivery of more nature based projects that will help make us less vulnerable to climate change.

We aim to achieve a 10% increase in our city’s coverage of plants and trees by 2038.

We are asking everyone who lives, works, studies or volunteers in Greater Manchester to share their thoughts with us by filling in a short survey. Doing so, will help us understand how you use and value Greater Manchester’s parks, woodlands and other greenspaces. We will use this information to determine how we will invest in improving and increasing our greenspaces, and establish the business case for making these investments.

This survey has now closed and we are currently analysing the results, which will be used to hep us determine how we will invest in improving and increasing our greenspaces, as well as establishing the business case for making these investments.
