Description

We are rapidly losing shared green space to private development. These spaces are our community meeting places, nature refuges, playgrounds and outdoor gyms. They improve water and air quality while providing a variety of mental and physical health benefits. Plus they are spaces for trees and other plants that act as a carbon sink to keep pollution out of the air. Let's save them together.

Tips

• Research local planning law to identify ways you can object to development. Common objections include loss of biodiversity, playing fields or community spaces.

• Start a campaign group with local residents, businesses and politicians. You will often have majority support against a few vested interests, so make the most of it!

• Find local charities and non-profits that support community action to stop the loss of our shared spaces.
