Creating and protecting the natural environment is essential to the success of our planet, to those who live here and to future generations.
Here at Groundwork we recognise that by using the natural environment to its fullest, we can reduce the effects of climate change. As such, we place people and place at the heart of all of our work.
We do this by helping people of all ages to protect, preserve and improve spaces that matter to them; from community parks, to river catchments to local allotments. Our landscape architects work with communities and landowners to introduce specialist solutions which reduce flooding, improve air quality and restore rivers to their natural form.
Groundwork’s approach over the past 40 years focuses on the fact that environmental resilience must also be coupled with social resilience. We work to ensure that local people can influence decisions that affect them. As a result, local people respect, care for and appreciate spaces for years to come.
In response to the challenge presented by COP26 we’re asking for central and local government, businesses, landowners and communities to work together more closely to introduce more natural solutions to landscape management.
