Enhancing urban green infrastructure: launch of the Greenkeeper tool
Thursday 14th May 2020, 1 - 2 pm Register to gain a place. (**Note that this is a date change from 2nd April as previously advertised**)
Join this webinar to discover Greenkeeper: a new online tool to support public authorities, developers and managers of urban greenspaces in the UK to make evidence-based planning and investment decisions. Greenkeeper uses big data and leading academic research to estimate visits to urban greenspaces and the benefits provided in terms of health, wellbeing, local value and carbon sequestration. It quantifies these benefits in monetary terms for any urban greenspace in the UK in a user-friendly format and without requiring any data input, standardising and making evidence accessible to decision-makers in the public and private sector. Greenkeeper has been collaboratively developed by Vivid Economics, Barton Willmore and the University of Exeter with funding support from Innovate UK.
