We are a coalition of environmental organisations working across the city of Birmingham, UK to create spaces for wildlife and people.
Birmingham is undergoing major transformation with major developments that will shape the city for generations to come. Each could significantly improve or worsen the natural environment in the city, impacting the health and wellbeing of everyone who lives and works here. At present the citizen's voice is absent from planning for these developments.
The Greener Birmingham Coalition has positively engaged with city planners to begin discussions to incorporate green space and environmental considerations into the designs of these developments, but we want to make sure this process is inclusive of all communities and citizens in Birmingham. Greener Birmingham plans for 2019 to be the year when citizens voices are heard.
