Green Cities Webinar 5: Should communities have a right to green space?
This webinar will explore the idea that all communities should have a right to green space, first proposed by Caroline Lucas in May 2020 in ‘Green Steps to Better’ and since put forward by a range of organisations. The webinar will explore what a ‘right to green space’ might mean; how it could be used to make the distribution of green spaces fairer; and what it means at a local level.
