Projects on the ground

Green Minds will create ‘wow’ spaces for nature across the city that demonstrate best practice in nature-based solutions.

The work will trial new ways of involving communities and social enterprises in co-stewardship and be supported by apprenticeships, education and engagement programmes.

Research by Plymouth University will evidence the impact of the investments on behaviours and attitudes towards nature and the creation of ‘green mindsets’.
