Glasgow is a city of surprises, where frogs are found in back gardens and common lizards scurry around Kirks and business parks. The ARC trust supports public events and citizen science to highlight the amphibians and reptiles Glaswegians share their city with.

Ethnic Minority Environmental Network (EMEN) facilitated by CEMVO Scotland
We support this vision as the increase of Green Spaces have several benefits. The first being direct potential benefits to carbon sequestration in urban environments, and a potential decrease in biodiversity. We recognise this as an opportunity to further increase access to green spaces for communities that are underprivileged. Research has shown that better availability of green spaces can increase mental health for individuals. It also allows a pathway to the feeling of ownership and protection of nature for these communities.

Being a national park city will help bring the change that is needed for a healthier and greener Glasgow for all!
Pat's Guide to Glasgow's West End
The idea of Glasgow as a Dear Green Place, with an abundance of parks and green spaces, should mean that these spaces are safeguarded and more accessible green spaces developed to improve the health and wellbeing of the city's citizens and help save the planet in tackling climate change.
Friends of the People's Palace, Winter Gardens and Glasgow Green
Glasgow Green is not just a public park, but the oldest public park in Scotland, on which the social and political hopes and ambition of generations have been formulated.It was always the place of entertainment, protest, demonstrations, debate, self-education and free speech, a phenomenon known as ‘The Glasgow Green University’.
Friends of Victoria Park
Friends of Victoria Park Glasgow fully support the Glasgow NPC. Glasgow has historically been known for its ‘Dear Green Space’ and have been experiencing huge pressure to reduce and/or commercialise the parks and spaces. A City wide umbrella support initiative has to be welcome to reverse past trends.
Glasgow Building Preservation Trust
Buildings don't exist in isolation, and the relationship between cultural and natural heritage has always been closely intertwined. Greenspace is as vital to our citizens' physical and emotional health (human and otherwise) as our built heritage. We are delighted to see this innovative initiative move forward and look forward to supporting a greener Glasgow.
