Projects on the ground
Green Minds has created ‘wow’ spaces for nature across the city that demonstrate best practice in nature-based solutions.
The work trialled new ways of involving communities and social enterprises in co-stewardship and was supported by apprenticeships, education and engagement programmes.
Research by Plymouth University has evidenced the impact of the investments on behaviours and attitudes towards nature and the creation of ‘green mindsets’.
