As restrictions start to cautiously ease and we continue to adapt to living with Covid-19, greenspace scotland has developed Better outside – using our spaces more to encourage and support our greenspaces to be used more for activities that would normally take place inside. We want to inspire and support others to do more outside – in the short term because of Covid-19, and in the longer term because of the well evidenced benefits of being outside and in greenspace.
Better Outside is a web-based resource which covers 7 themes:
Each theme includes downloadable pdfs with advice on things to consider, where to get help and also real-life examples from inspiring community organisations who have successfully adapted their activities.
It also includes Technical Resources with information on practical considerations such as building shelters and providing handwashing facilities, and an inspiring Ideas Source Book.
You can find all the Better outside resources here
Better outside – using our spaces more was supported by a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
