Sunday 3 June
We’re organising an event around the idea of utilising derelict and vacant land for children to play. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Scottish Derelict and Vacant Land Survey and we want to celebrate this by encouraging people to utilise their local spaces for children to play We believe that children playing outside in their community will make local spaces safe and this will bring the wider community together.
Children (and adults) are not spending enough time outside in nature and as a result they are suffering. Mental and physical health problems are at an all time high, while time spent outside in wild spaces is declining. This is where we believe derelict and vacant land can play a role in helping facilitate community use of local wild spaces.
We’ll be posting more information soon. For now, this is what you can expect.
