Simon O’Brien, environmentalist and chair of Mayor Anderson’s Green & Open Spaces Review Board, being interviewed by Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips on 20 October.
His interview starts at 1:26:10 and finishes at 1:40:50.
His much awaited interim report is now with the Mayor, before being released for public consultation.
A new report from a wide range of environmental organisations on how we could, as a nation, improve our health through nature may be one of the ways to prove how cost effective our greenspaces really are! One of the recommendations is: “By 2018, 1% of the public health budget should be invested in using the preventative and restorative value of nature to provide cost effective health solutions.”
