The Charter for Trees, Woods and People (the Tree Charter) was launched in Lincoln Castle on 6 November 2017 – the 800th anniversary of the 1217 Charter of the Forest. The people of the UK have a right to the benefits brought by trees and woods. The new charter will recognise, celebrate and protect this right.

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People sets out the principles for a society in which people and trees can stand stronger together. The Tree Charter will draw its strength from the hundreds of thousands of people across the UK that sign and is rooted in more than 60,000 ‘tree stories’ gathered from people of all backgrounds across the UK.

Be a part of this historic moment, sign the Tree Charter to show your support for the principles.

The 2017 Greenspace Use and Attitude survey published by greenspace scotland shows the downward trend in the deteriorating quality of Scotland’s parks and greenspaces has continued.  Whilst the survey confirms that Scots still love their parks, with over 90% of urban Scots saying it is important to have greenspace in their local area, the quality of Scotland’s parks and greenspaces has continued to decline, and this means that fewer people are using their local greenspaces regularly.

40% of people agreed or agreed strongly that the quality of their local greenspace has reduced in the last 5 years (up from 33% in 2011) and this figure rises to 50% for people living in the more deprived areas (up from 35% in 2011).

Keep Scotland Beautiful have published a report showing that Scotland’s local environmental quality is deteriorating and that it is at a 10 year all time low.

The Local Environmental Quality in Decline report confirms that there has been a marked increase in the presence of litter, flytipping and graffiti in communities across the Scotland, and an overall decline in local environmental quality.

Poor local environmental quality is having a negative impact every day on the lives of over one million people living in Scotland. Local environmental quality is declining more severely and at a faster rate in our most deprived communities. And for those that perceive their local environment to be poor are more likely to report poorer physical and mental health.

A drive to get children out to play has been launched. The year-long campaign, “Away and Play”, is powered by Inspiring Scotland. It will highlight the benefits of free and unstructured play in encouraging imagination, promoting risk-taking, improving health and helping children collaborate.

Research published in the academic journal Early Education and Development is part of a growing body of research on the subject. This has shown that children with higher levels of active outdoor play had improved cognition which resulted in better academic performance in reading and mathematics.

These findings are supported by evidence from Inspiring Scotland’s Active Play programme, which currently works with primary schools in Glasgow in partnership with Glasgow City Council, through which class teachers have reported greater alertness and focus from children following active outdoor play sessions.
