As part of Greater Manchester’s pioneering IGNITION project to encourage investment in green infrastructure, researchers are looking to understand how parks and green spaces are being used.
The £4 million IGNITION initiative, launched in 2019, is one of several innovative projects in Greater Manchester aiming to increase investment in nature-based solutions to a cleaner, healthier and more climate-resilient future.
The initiative includes cutting-edge projects like Salford University’s ‘Living Laboratory’, which is transforming the university’s campus into a ‘shop window’ for green roofs, living walls, rain gardens, street trees and other solutions.
The programme is now researching innovative ideas about how Greater Manchester’s 450+ public parks and green spaces can be uplifted.
Greater Manchester residents are invited to complete an online survey to share their thoughts.
