RECLAIM welcome event poster

The RECLAIM network will be a 'one stop shop’ for towns and cities to find the information and support you need to install green and blue infrastructure in your communities and put you in touch with others with similar experiences.

It will build a community of practice, which reconsiders urban green and blue infrastructure in a holistic way, identifying and addressing knowledge gaps and implementation challenges, and helping to fast track solutions which improve the sustainability of cities and their resilience to climate and societal challenges.

RECLAIM (Reclaiming forgotten cities - turning cities from vulnerable spaces to healthy places for people) is an EPSRC funded Network+ grant (£1.2M). It is led by our Global Centre for Clean Air Research (GCARE) in collaboration with the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, universities of Bath, Bangor and Warwick.

This welcome event is to introduce the network and the opportunities available through it over the course of its lifetime. We are looking forward to welcoming you all!

If you would like to receive email updates about the project and participate in network activities then you can sign up to become a network member.
