Edinburgh's Thriving Greenspaces
Edinburgh is one of eight urban areas to share in £11 million worth of funding to secure the future of the UK’s parks and greenspaces.
Funding and partnership
The University of Edinburgh is working in partnership with others on this project to carry out research, start pilots and gather robust baseline information.
Green Infrastructure Mapping Pilot Project
The Green Infrastructure Mapping Pilot Project forms part of Edinburgh University's contribution.
A mobile app, the Parks Green Infrastructure Mapping app, allows the Council to measure the quality of parks and improve upon them, accounting for biodiversity and natural services that contribute to health and wellbeing, with ongoing community engagement.
The pilot's Phase 2 is running from February to the end of June 2022.
