British Ecological Society Online Exhibition: Six Predictions for Edinburgh’s Future Green Spaces

Could trees send you a text when they need watering? Would you cut down trees to capture more carbon? Where would you play if your local park was deliberately flooded? These are just a few of the things that could happen to our most familiar spaces  to help combat the climate crisis.

This digital event will transport you to a virtual gallery overlooking Arthur’s Seat to explore and create your own exciting visions for the future of green spaces in Edinburgh. Local artists and ecologists have got together to imagine a ‘better’, greener future for Edinburgh. How do you think have they done, and what would your vision be?

Tackling problems like carbon emissions, drought, heatwaves and even social justice, the online art exhibition, co-created by young and local artists and urban ecologists showcases ground-breaking nature based solutions, where nature is used to benefit both the environment and people.

Dive into the visions and science to explore how you can take action in future to help combat climate change and help us ensure that everyone has a voice in our futures by contributing your own ideas for future green spaces in Edinburgh.
