Enrich Programme Part of the Plymouth GEMS Future Parks Accelerator
We all love our parks; they are our common heritage; our shared wealth and they belong to all of us that call Plymouth home. We have a dazzling range of woodlands, parks, squares and waterfronts covering some 1600 hectares – over one third of the city’s land area. As the world changes, the way we think about and care for our parks must also change. With cuts to government spending, a changing climate, loss of biodiversity and growing issues around public health, our parks are more important than ever.
How can we bring social enterprise thinking to our urban green spaces?
The Enrich programme, Sep 2019 – Feb 2020
The Enrich programme will bring together 40 ‘experts’ over the course of six days to learn, discuss, do and decide together about enterprising approaches to our green spaces and how they are managed. When we say experts, in addition to experts in social enterprise, we mean also experts in Plymouth parks. This includes parks users, residents and communities, as well as council staff. Basically, anyone with any interest of any sort in our parks. Read more about the GEMS Enrichment Programme
