Green Space

In April 2020, we held a webinar to discuss how municipalities are dealing with Green Spaces during COVID emergency (different strategies and pros and cons).

Green Space and COVID

  • Definition of Green Space: parks, sports fields, woods, grassland and meadows, wetlands and other ecosystems. Different types of green spaces may require different approaches depending on how much an issue physical distancing requirements would be to practice and enforce.
  • The balance between providing access to space to exercise and for mental health.
  • Ensuring that physical distancing is being practiced. Trying to better understand the leading practice re How to ensure/enforce?
  • People's power needed to make sure it is not having the unintended consequence of too many people using at once. The government can't do this on its own.
