News on the Green Minds Mapping Platform!
At Green Minds, we’re helping to facilitate a ‘Plymouth Rewilding Network’. This was created in December 2020 following an online workshop which highlighted the need for people to connect & support each other in taking rewilding action, as well as getting ecological expertise & guidance.
One of the key themes was to improve ecological knowledge & gain a better understanding of the practicalities of rewilding. Most recently, we have compiled & recommended these resources to get you started:
•Plymouth Rewilding Network Summer Social Summary & How to rewild guidance
•Introduction to Habitats in Plymouth Webinar
As well as providing rewilding guidance & resources, we have also been working on a mapping platform with a focus group which will help connect groups across Plymouth. The Data Place & University of Plymouth have been working on a prototype – watch this recording (from 4.45) to see a preview of the map & how you can search for places, organisations, people, services, activities, & how everyone is connected.
We need your help!
In order to get the Plymouth Rewilding Network Map ready to go on the Green Minds website, we now need to hear from you! If you’re part of a group taking rewilding action or volunteering to help the environment & wildlife, complete this quick survey: https://forms.gle/WiU8iFLnGt5VWrZc8
