In recent years, the European Union has provided both a strong policy context and significant project funding for green infrastructure across the UK, as well as numerous opportunities to learn from the innovation taking place in other EU countries. Losing this policy and financial support – and access to pan-EU networks of green infrastructure sector innovation – will be a significant change for the sector. However, in all the UK nations, policy support for green infrastructure has strengthened considerably in the last few years. This webinar will consider the implications of BREXIT for green infrastructure policy and practice in the light of new initiatives being brought forward by the governments of Scotland, Wales and England.
