Edinburgh's Thriving Green Spaces Project
Our project will shape an ambitious new vision for Edinburgh’s natural environment and produce a 30-year strategy and action plan to deliver that vision. We aim to protect and enhance our green spaces, so that they benefit people today and in the long term.
Creating amazing spaces together.
Edinburgh’s parks, green spaces, rivers, lochs and shorelines have never been so important to us as we cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. We know how vital they are for the well-being of our city.
This is at the heart of our Thriving Green Spaces project which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the National Trust.
Together we will find better ways of connecting you and the natural habitats that make up the fabric of our inspiring city. Together we can grow, thrive, and adapt for the Edinburgh of the future.
We are looking for volunteers to help us carry out observation and mapping studies across 5 parks in Edinburgh.
Postcards from the future
Time travellers visited the Edinburgh of 2050 and sent postcards from the future back to the year 2021 describing how our parks and greenspaces had changed.
