Why are green spaces & wildlife important?

If everyone lived like we do in the UK, we would need three planets to support us! We need to be more respectful of the world around us and use only what we need. This is true in our homes, in our public spaces and in the natural environment.

Sustainable spaces is about low-impact living that is supportive of both people and planet.

From supporting wildlife to co-fostering community spaces to encouraging pro-environmental halls of residence, we look to reimagine the world we live in.
