Gary Grant CEnv FIEEM AoU | Green Roof Consultancy, Chair of IHDC
Dusty Gedge | President, European Federation of Green Roof Associations
Jonathan Porter | The Ecosystems Knowledge Network
“A fantastic and inspiring day – one of the most useful and interesting workshops I have ever attended. We are already implementing the principles into our own plans and strategies.”
"The course provided the opportunity to improve my understanding of GI and the practicalities surrounding the implementation of GI. In particular it was great to learn about the multiple benefits that can be derived from GI and helped me to appreciate the importance of using GI as tool to drive forward a joined up, sustainable approach to local developments."
This interdisciplinary masterclass will explore issues facing Manchester of surface water management, urban heat island, and the quality of air, water and biodiversity.
The workshop will provide an in-depth introduction to Green Infrastructure and the ecosystem services approach, in the light of changes in local planning and environment policy and opportunities to take an ecosystem services approach to the design, planing, implementation, retrofit and maintenance of Manchester.
Participants will also work in groups to produce a practical design, applying an ecosystem services approach to the development of a local site in Manchester, to develop a practical understanding of the principles involved.
This workshop aims to share expertise amongst local Manchester practitioners and designers, planners, ecologists and policy makers, local authorities, housing providers and community representatives, contractors and green space managers.
As well as local guest speakers, this workshop will be led by some of the UK's foremost practitioners on urban green infrastructure and ecosystem services, including:
