The Glasgow and Clyde Valley (GCV) Green Network Partnership this month celebrated a momentous 10 years of partnership.
As part of the festivities a small celebratory event was hosted in the city, at which a brand new GCV Green Network case study and infographic was launched charting the history of the Green Network.
The event brought together some of the key figures in the GCV Green Network’s story including one of its founding fathers, Vincent Goodstadt former GCV Structure Plan Manager and original Green Network visionary.Vincent said “I’m delighted to see continued ambition and determination to work toward making the Green Network vision a reality and build on the progress that’s been made in the last 10 years”.
“I am encouraged by the enthusiasm still held by key partners like Forestry Commission Scotland, SNH, and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health, and at the support lent by the Scottish Government and the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Trust.
“I have no doubt the GCV Green Network will continue to thrive in coming years. This is essential if we are to deliver real change in the quality of people’s lives, especially those most disadvantaged in our communities”
Another of the event contributors, Bridget Campbell, Director of Environment & Forestry at Scottish Government, said, “The GCV Green Network is a vital component of the CSGN covering a third of the CSGN area and home to 50% of its population, in order to make the CSGN happen programmes like the GCV Green Network need to succeed.”
“As a National Development, delivery of the CSGN is a high priority and crucial to Scotland’s economic competitiveness.”
