Making the most of your local environment

Making the most of your local environment
Report from a Big Local Networking & Learning event

‘Making the most of your local environment’ was a Big Local ‘learning and networking event’ that took place on March 23rd 2017 at the Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol. A central aim was to look at how environmental activities and green space projects can develop in many directions and link to and support other priorities as well. The potential outcomes of this work are clear and include:
• A better environment!
• Better health
• Safer places for young people
• Jobs
There are many examples to learn from.
