Young Placechangers Programme
Our Young Placechangers programme funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Scottish Government has now come to an end. Over the past three years we have worked across Scotland with some incredible young people, youth workers, communities, and professionals in the built and natural environment.
It has been an honour to go on a truly groundbreaking journey where young people were placed at the heart of the decision-making process in their communities. It’s been inspiring to see what can be achieved when we involve young people in our places, and not just through a consultation process but actively engage them on their terms using a range of co-created placechanging tools. You can find out more about each funded project through the case studies on our website and watch films from the Young People and Place Festival 
Young people can provide insights and help reimagine places that are great for us all to live and work in. If you’re working in planning or regeneration, if you’re a youth worker or community group, or a young person wanting to change your place, take a look at the resources we’ve developed to support work with young people. Learn more about the Young Placechangers Toolkit and This Must Be Our Place resources 
The Young Placechangers programme continues with work in Perth & Kinross supported by The Gannochy Trust and in Fife supported by the OVO Foundation. We’re working now on the next phase of young placechangers, so if you’re interested in getting involved with Young Placechangers, please get in touch with Angela 

Covid Community Memorial Programme update
Since the Covid Community Memorial Programme (CCMP) team, Kim, John and Carla, began in July 2021, we have been working on developing a programme that will invite communities across the country to co-create memorial projects with artists. 
The Covid Community Memorial Programme is being developed in collaboration with partners in each local authority area and co-created to be relevant to communities and the places they live. The projects will be made with awareness of the enormous range of experiences we have had during this time, from loss and bereavement to mutual aid and togetherness. We will work with our partners to make sure everyone feels welcome to co-create and that these projects capture an honest response to what we have been through together. And we will commission artists in every area to lead this co-creation, working with our partners to support them with this sensitive and important work. 
The programme will support communities in an act of collective reflection, remembrance, hope and healing as we emerge from the Covid pandemic.
As well as co-creating memorials in each area, our partners and artists will be supported by greenspace scotland through a learning and exchange programme that will focus on improving how we co-create with communities, support artists in communities, co-create in the climate crisis and co-create with a diversifying Scotland.
Taking an inclusive, learning and sustainable approach, the CCMP team have been meeting with partners in local authority areas across Scotland and callouts for artists will start to be announced in the next few months, with the first wave of co-creation commissions beginning in November 2021. Watch out for more information through greenspace scotland news. If you want to know more about the programme, please email Kim

Project of the month

Scotland’s Wee Forests
Earlier this year Scotland’s first ‘Tiny Forest’ was planted at Avenue End Rd in Easterhouse on the outskirts of Glasgow. Earthwatch Europe worked with the Seven Lochs Project and Glasgow City Council to create the forest, which will be looked after by local schoolchildren and volunteers from The Conservation Volunteers Scotland.
This Scottish forest is part of Earthwatch Europe‘s efforts to kickstart Tiny Forest planting across the UK. Tiny Forests are densely packed native forests no bigger than a tennis court using a method developed by Japanese botanist Akira Miyawaki in the 1970s. They bring the benefits of a forest – reconnecting people with nature and raising awareness, helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change, as well as providing nature-rich habitat patches to support urban wildlife. 
This idea of planting small forests in underused urban spaces has been picked up through a new ‘Wee Forests’ initiative led by NatureScot. In partnership with Glasgow City Council and the Green Action Trust, this project will plant three new wee forests in Glasgow’s urban landscape as part of the legacy from the COP26 climate conference.
Easterhouse’s Tiny Forest is also part of the Clyde Climate Forest project. Spanning the Glasgow City Region this project aims to plant 18 million trees across Glasgow City Region as part of a new urban forest. You can help the Clyde Climate Forest grow mighty by making a crowdfund donation on MyParkScotland

Expenditure on Scotland’s parks and greenspaces continues to fall
The Improvement Service have published the 2019/20 reports for the Local Government Benchmarking Framework. The Culture & Leisure report  which includes parks and greenspace reveals that over the last 10 years (from 2010/11 to 2019/20) spend on parks and greenspaces has reduced in real terms by 34.2% - with a year-on-year reduction, including 2.9% in 2019/20. In previous years, councils with highest levels of deprivation spent significantly more on parks and greenspaces, but this is no longer the case – costs have reduced by 41% in the most deprived councils compared to 26% in the least deprived councils. Local authority parks and greenspace colleagues will discuss the report’s findings at an event on 6 Sept.  You can access all the LGBF reports here 
Demonstrating the power of Nature Based Solutions
The Improvement Service has joined together with COSLA, NatureScot and the Sustainable Scotland Network to develop awareness of the potential of Nature-based Solutions (NbS). Focusing on how harnessing nature can help us deliver a range of outcomes simultaneously, including for climate change, communities, public health and a ‘green recovery’ from COVID-19. The briefing has been developed to inform and support elected members along with the wider local government community.

Connecting Nature Impact Assessment Framework shortlisted for Award
The Connecting Nature Impact Assessment Framework, developed by the University of A Coruña and Glasgow City Council has been shortlisted for the Royal Town Planing Award for Research Excellence.

Nature-based accelerator – growing green innovation
Back in May, Glasgow City Council’s Connecting Nature project, in partnership with The Melting Pot’s Good Ideas and Glasgow Caledonian University, started a pilot programme to support nature-based businesses and social enterprises in Glasgow. As the programme finishes it is being celebrated on 2 September. At this event (see event listings below), the innovators will pitch their nature-based enterprise ideas. But who are they, and what are they working on? Read this short blog series to whet your appetite.
Stirling Council consults on Alive With Nature plan
Stirling Council’s Alive With Nature plan sets out the actions the local authority and its partners have identified to create a healthier and more resilient natural environment across Stirling. The plan addresses the twin climate and nature emergencies through the protection and restoration of Stirling’s natural environment. It is a key component of the Council’s Climate and Nature Emergency Plan that was recently approved by Councillors. 
Local food for everyone consultation launched
The public are being urged to help shape the first ever local food strategy produced by the Scottish Government.

Scottish projects round-up

Adopted lockdown trees take root as part of new District Park
Winchburgh residents, who saved and nurtured saplings during the pandemic, have now planted their trees creating an area of community woodland as part of the new 85 acre Auldcathie Park. A change in the construction schedule due to Covid-19 meant that trees had to be adopted and cared for by green-fingered locals in Winchburgh until the ground was ready for them at the new Auldcathie District Park. The trees were planted by the Winchburgh Community Growing Group volunteers

Derelict areas in Aberdeen transformed into community sports hubs
Denis Law Legacy Trust in Aberdeen has worked with partners over the past four years to transform impractical and dangerous areas of the city into greenspaces. In partnership with the Cruyff Foundation, Aberdeen City Council and People’s Postcode Lottery, two Astro-turf and floodlit Cruyff Courts have been built to create vibrant community sports hubs.
Once a dingy and concrete surface which was often littered with broken glass, Cruyff Court Denis Law opened in 2017 and became the first of its kind in Scotland. Cruyff Court Neale Cooper followed two years later in the Torry area of the city and replaced an unusable, derelict hockey pitch. Both greenspaces are, and always will be, entirely free and unbookable, allowing for communities to use them at all times in a safe and controlled environment.

Dementia Friendly Health Walk
Paths for All have worked in partnership with Live Active Leisure in Perth and Kinross and Richmond House care home in Crieff to start a new Dementia Friendly Health Walk led by the care home’s enthusiastic staff. The Crieff Dementia Friendly Health Walk, which started in April this year, now welcomes over 20 people every Thursday, who meet at the Royal British Legion, to walk and talk together with staff from Richmond House care home. Two walks are offered, lasting either 20 or 50 minutes, to help keep adults active.

UK and international news

National Park status for English cities?
Natural England is considering if cities in England could be granted national park status – affording urban areas the same level of environmental protection as natural landscapes – as part of a review of open spaces and protected landscapes.
Start with the park - Garden Village Ideas Competition
Carlisle City Council in partnership with The Landscape Institute and United Utilities as main sponsors, have launched a two-stage design competition to select an individual, or a team, to design a new Greenway and Park which will form the centrepiece of St Cuthbert’s Garden Village communities in the south of Carlisle.

New community forest created in north-east England 
Defra, England Community Forests and councils across the north-east of England have announced the creation of the North-East Community Forest to bring people closer to nature.  The initiative is aiming to plant 500 hectares of trees across six local authority areas by 2025.
Welsh parliament declares a nature emergency 
The Welsh parliament (the Senedd) has declared a nature emergency and has called for legally binding biodiversity targets. It is hoped that the declaration will lead to an increase in investment in nature-based solutions across Wales.
Argentinian city wins global prize for urban farming project
The Sustainable Food Production for a Resilient Rosario project won the 2020-2021 World Resources Institute Prize for Cities. The project was set up to provide healthy local produce and livelihoods for poor families and later developed to repurpose public and private land. Launched in the wake of Argentina’s 2001 economic crisis around 300 urban farmers now have temporary ownership of public and private land with over 2,400 families started their own vegetable gardens and there are seven new permanent market spaces selling local food.


Continued inequalities in use of greenspace
A third report by MRC on behalf of the Public Health Scotland (PHS) Social and Systems Recovery (SSR) Environment and Spaces Group has been published looking at the impact of Covid-19 on use of greenspace. The report shows there were sharp inequalities in visiting green and open space in spring 2021, preventing some people from experiencing the mental health benefits associated with use of outdoor space.

Greenspace interventions for mental health
Parks and greenspaces are important for our mental health but it is important that everyone can benefit. Research carried out by Stirling University, Dundee Green Health Partnership and TCV found that greenspace programmes or nature-based interventions do not work for everybody equally and seem to be more successful in improving mental health for some people than others. The team are developing a framework to support understanding of the key components that make these projects successful and to inform future programme development.
Understanding drivers of participation in the outdoors in Scotland
New research commissioned by the Scottish Government and Nature Scot looks at the drivers of participation in the outdoors in Scotland. The aim of the research was to understand current attitudes to and behaviours towards outdoor recreation, and to provide recommendations on how the increased participation observed since 2012 can be sustained over the long-term, with any barriers to participation among lower-participation and equalities groups overcome. The research was qualitative and employed a behavioural science approach.
Traffic-related air pollution effect on schoolchildren
Exposure to traffic-related air pollution at school, where children spend much of their waking hours, has been associated with poorer performance in tests of brain health and development. This study (the first of its kind in Australia) aimed to assess associations between greenery, road traffic density surrounding primary schools, and academic achievement of primary schoolchildren in Melbourne.
Children’s Climate Risk Index
UNICEF has released the new report ‘The Climate Crisis is a Child Rights Crisis: Introducing the Children’s Climate Risk Index’. This is the first comprehensive analysis of climate risk from a child’s perspective and ranks countries based on children’s exposure to climate and environmental shocks. The report finds that nearly every child on earth is already exposed to at least one climate and environmental hazard.
State of the urban environment 
The Environment Agency’s Chief Scientist Group has produced a report which focuses on the role that the urban environment can play in both supporting wildlife and improving people’s health and wellbeing in England. Main findings include:
  • Urban environments are lower in biodiversity than natural and semi-natural habitats but can provide opportunities for groups such as some mammal and pollinator species.
  • Economic valuation of urban natural capital demonstrates multiple social, environmental and economic benefits and the importance of urban green and blue spaces and blue-green infrastructure.
  • Urban environments can have detrimental impacts on people’s health and wellbeing but can also be harnessed to offer opportunities to prevent and treat ill-health if well designed and maintained.
  • Climate change and population growth are exacerbating environmental issues in urban areas.
  • Urban environments are complex systems, and a system-based approach will better enable people to manage this complexity and identify where nature-based solutions will be most effective.
