Biodiversity & Health

  • Outcome: A balanced approach to park and open space design and management that takes into account the needs of both people and wild nature. 

 

The challenge

Open spaces and parks are generally designed for either biodiversity or recreation. Biodiversity-focused parks typically provide limited access to people to minimise disturbance, while recreational parks are overmanaged and provide limited biodiversity gains. We know that open spaces and connecting with nature is vital for people's health and wellbeing. 

 

The solution

Ecosulis has designed a unique tool for combined biodiversity and health assessment. The information that this tool provides allows land managers and landscape designers to adopt a more balanced approach when it comes to parks and open spaces, taking into account the needs of both people and wild nature.
