Welcome to Naturally Birmingham

Green Champions – Helping to deliver the City of Nature Plan

A New Governance Model for Birmingham’s Green Space

Under Joseph Chamberlain, Birmingham was seen as the birthplace for modern municipal government, it was at this time that the city’s parks took pride of place amongst its newest city assets 150 years later we are living in very different times and the city’s green spaces now need to respond to global climate and ecological emergencies and other challenges like the Covid19 pandemic

To do this effectively Birmingham needs to take the lead again and change its current governance approach to put nature at the centre of its decision making this is why our FPA programme is called ‘Naturally Birmingham’.

Naturally Birmingham is a cross working project with people’s views and values at it’s heart – testing new approaches to caring for the city’s green spaces.

The first phase of the Naturally Birmingham project comes to a close at the end of June 2022 and a follow on project to complete the City of Nature development called the Urban Nature Development Project work begins and will run until December 2023. Bringing nature to everyone’s doorstep.
