Please complete this survey if you live or work in Edinburgh, or you have visited the city in the last 12 months
Edinburgh’s ‘greenspaces’ – areas covered in vegetation or water, such as parks, cemeteries, rivers, beaches, and urban woodlands - provide us with important opportunities to escape the noise and stress of built up areas, exercise, and socialise. They offer contact to the natural world and act as an attractive backdrop to some of the city’s most prolific events. Although we can sometimes take these benefits and opportunities for granted, it is important to ensure everyone in the city has easy access to high quality, attractive, safe and varied greenspace.
Forest Research has launched this survey to collect information on where people go to see and enjoy nature in Edinburgh. We will use your responses to identify the most loved areas of greenspace in the city and to get a better idea about why you value these areas. This survey has been developed as part of the European GREEN SURGE project and findings will be shared with City of Edinburgh Council and other Edinburgh Living Landscape partners to help inform better planning and management of the city’s greenspace.
We greatly value your help in completing this survey. It should take approximately 10-20 minutes, depending on how detailed you want to be in your response.
