The Big Green Conversation - Survey
Tell us what kind of city you want to live in.

As part of the delivery of its ambitious 25-year Environment Plan to create an improved natural environment and to 'be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it' the Government has designated 2019 as the Year of Green Action (YOGA). The aim is to generate interest in green action, to create momentum, and to inspire more people from all backgrounds to take actions that improve the natural world.

Birmingham is undergoing major transformation with major developments that shape the city for generations to come. Each could significantly improve or worsen the natural environment in Birmingham, 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.

Please tell us 'what kind of city you want to live in' and help us to create a People's Charter for the Environment during the Year of Green Action 2019.
