A new website which showcases the natural environment of Greater Manchester and encourages people to enjoy it and help care for it was launched at the GM Mayor’s Green Summit in March. It features projects that are restoring natural features and improving access to green space, plus information on walking routes, conservation activities and volunteering opportunities.
This new online resource aims not only to increase people's use of natural green space in the Greater Manchester area, but to encourage the public to get involved in work to restore and improve these places. it is publicising opportunities to plant trees, record local wildlife, help out with educational activities, volunteer on nature reserves and much more.
The website is also showcasing a range of projects connected with Manchester's environment, including climate resilience research work, projects aiming to improve accessibility, gardening initiatives, and efforts to increase the number of children walking and cycling to school.
