The essential role of green infrastructure in building resilience in the built environment

Over the next 25 years it is expected that around 650,000 houses will be built in the North of England with £75bn investment planned. This presents challenges as well as opportunities – increased carbon emissions, flood risk and pollution as well as loss of habitats and green spaces where people can unwind.

Putting green infrastructure at the heart of development presents a natural solution to some of these challenges: creating places that are healthier, happier, more environmentally friendly and more attractive for the people who live, work and invest in them.

Sian Day, who works with companies to build the City of Trees movement, helping to plant more trees, manage more woodland and connect more  people to nature, will talk about the City of Trees initiative and how this will deliver the benefits of green infrastructure for Greater Manchester.’
