Green Sky Thinking 2014
Bankside Urban Forest is delighted to be participating for the third year running in Green Sky Thinking week, the Capital's annual events programme showcasing best practice in innovative thinking and practice for sustainability in London's built environment.
WIth a starting point in a magical pocket park hidden behind Tate Modern, this year, a guided walk will take participants on a tour of recent green infrastructure projects, including Verdant Viaduct, the Skirt of the Black Mouth as well as other recent additions to Bankside's increasingly green townscape. The walk will take place on Monday 28th April, meeting at the Skirt of the Black Mouth at 5.30pm.
Bankside is a dense and built up inner London neighbourhood, and as such lacks large parks and green spaces. However the area has a rich network of pocket parks and small green spaces many of which are looked after by local green spaces charity BOST.
Bankside Urban Forest works in partnership with a range of local private, public and not for profit agencies to improve the network of streets and other spaces that link the neighbourhood through a series of large and small, temporary and permanent interventions.
