General Election

The Landscape Institute has published a list of recommendations to the next UK government ahead of the general election on 4 July.

Developing green skills for a greener economy and improving access to green space are two or 12 key recommendations that it outlines for people, place and nature.

President-elect Carolin Göhler says she hopes that these will “help the UK to scale up low-carbon development” and “tackle social and environmental issues”.

“Landscape professionals have the skills and expertise to deliver sustainable, nature-based solutions to the challenges we face, but it is vital that this work is supported by policy and resources.”

The recommendations focus on four key policy areas: Scaling up climate resilient, low carbon development; driving education, awareness and skills for a greener and more resilient economy; promoting a combined approach to environmental policy; and championing the power of nature for health and wellbeing.

Following the announcement of the general election last month, Göhler said the next government has a “vital opportunity” to address certain issues and promote landscape as part of the solution.
