Final panel Q&A & summary by Kirsten Henson

“Thank you for a wonderful event. For me personally it both filled the gaps in my knowledge and convinced me that the bigger picture is the key to brining about change!”

- Joe Ward

“I believe the depression and anxieties people experience is mainly do for the disconnection with Nature. The green spaces are vital for the wellbeing of the people and for their mental health.”

- Virginia Cucchi

“These types of events are essential to find out what else is happening in the sector but most importantly, how we can link or projects together to make a united front in the fight for green spaces.”

- Anthea Thomas

“This event has every potential to escalate the importance of green infrastructure up the political and economical agenda that it deserves!”

- Robert Donald

“There are many days when I feel that I am a loan voice calling for high quality green infrastructure. It is so important to be re-invigorated by talking and listening to others who share this passion, and indeed to strike up supportive collaborations to move our dream into reality.”

- Simon Bates

“This event is extremely beneficial as it is cross-disciplinary and introduces ideas not usually considered in the standard silo working.”

- Richard Ashley

“This event gives a very good overview of the green infrastructure agenda with interesting & very knowledgeable speakers.”

- Ruth Elwood

“It's important to come together & support this event as it is a means to mobilise all those who care about green spaces to speak out and act together to protect and improve them.”

- Dave Morris
