Finding greenspaces has never been easier! The new free Greenspace layer in OS Maps is the easiest way to discover greenspaces across Britain.

Whether it’s a quick click online or a simple tap on the app, OS Maps lets you find different places for leisure and recreation across England, Scotland and Wales.

The Scottish Greenspace Map, released by greenspace scotland and the Scottish Government in 2011, was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. This new project with Ordnance Survey updates the Scottish Greenspace Map and extends it to England and Wales, with the aim of making it easier for people to find and access every green corner of Britain’s neighbourhoods, towns and cities.

Zero Waste Scotland has produced a guide of ideas to tackle littering that go beyond picking it up. Litter-picking tackles the symptoms of the litter problem without tracing it back to the source. No sooner have you finished tidying up, than the problem rears its ugly head again

This guide will show you how to go further. How to channel the enthusiasm from previous litter picks – inspiring communities to prevent litter in the first place.

From surprising techniques taken from behavioural science, to a targeted messaging toolkit, this guide will help you address Scotland’s litter problem in innovative ways — ways that deliver for the long term.

They’ve included lots of inspirational examples from across the UK and beyond. You’ll find more detailed case studies of selected examples at the end of this guide. Download the guide here: ZWS guide booklet_Beyond_Litter_pick_AW2

One Big Picnic One Big Community is a free event for the people by the people from 12-4pm on Sunday 3 September in George Square.

The aim of the event is to bring people together by creating a space for sharing food and a wee blether, sitting next to each other, showing understanding to differences regardless of background, cultural, religious, sexual orientation, social or educational status, homelessness or wealth. Highlighting Glasgow is indeed a city of caring people – people make Glasgow!

The event brings together community projects which prepare and serve free meals/provide food parcels on a regular basis  to those in need, such as the elderly, homeless and destitute. We believe that everyone has the right to good accessible food and should be treated fairly and with dignity. Therefore we will be serving wonderful dishes from around the world to all.

On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September, Glasgow will play host to the first Clydebuilt Festival, a celebration of boats, folk and our shared heritage.

There will be something for everyone at the festival: whether you are young or old; an old salt or a determined land lubber, come along to see, smell, taste and experience maritime heritage as you’ve never seen it before.

The Festival runs from 10-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday and is totally FREE except for a few elements which are ticketed – mainly the ceilidh and Castle to Crane race. The Festival is based around the plaza of the Riverside Museum with good car parking and easy transport links to the city centre.

Welcome to the fourth year of Glasgow Wildfest which will run from Friday 1 to Saturday 30 September 2017 across the City. Glasgow Wildfest is a whole month of events celebrating Glasgow’s greenspaces and the many organisations and groups working tirelessly to help wildlife and improve their local parks and gardens for everyone to enjoy.

So why not join in with events happening throughout September and meet some of the people doing incredible things to help protect Glasgow’s wildlife, and make the city a greener place for everyone to enjoy. This year, there are 32 events for you to choose from. Each weekend will see the focus switch to a different part of Glasgow, celebrating both well-known and hidden greenspaces within those areas.

Highlights for the festival this year include the Wild Day Out in Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens (Sat 2 Sept), which will be the biggest recording event there in 20 years! Please do join in if you can, as they need as many citizen scientists as possible on the day to help them uncover all the wildlife.  As well as the grand opening of a newly developed garden and community hub by Friends of Springburn Park (Sat 23 Sept) and a picnic concert at the Hidden Gardens with the accompaniment of live chamber music (Sat 16 Sept).

More details can be found in the leaflet Wildfest 2017 and for more information, updates, and late additions please check out www.glasgowwildfest.org, follow #glasgowwildfest on Twitter or email gnahg@rspb.org.uk Accompanied children are welcome at all events
