Greening the City Programme

Belfast Healthy Cities is delivering a greening the city programme as part of Phase VII (2020-2025) of the World Health Organization (WHO) European Healthy Cities Network. The programme seeks to create mutually beneficial relationships between citizens and the urban environment for improved physical and mental wellbeing. It has involved a review of evidence and policies linked to greening, health and inequalities in Belfast, discussions with stakeholders on priorities, gaps and opportunities, greening for health webinars and action planning workshops, a greening the city action plan, and a cross sector advisory group to inform and support delivery. Partners involved are Belfast City Council, Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, Belfast Healthy Cities, Belfast Hills Partnership, Department for Infrastructure, EastSide Partnership, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, Northern Ireland Environment Link, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Outdoor Recreation NI, Public Health Agency, Queen’s University Belfast, RSPB NI, Social Farms & Gardens, and West Belfast Partnership Board.
