Beaver reintroduction at Poole Farm, part of the Green Minds project.

Led by Plymouth City Council and with other partners including the University of Plymouth, the National Trust, Devon Wildlife Trust, Real Ideas Organisation and The Data Place Ltd, the project aims to bring forward innovative and future-proofed ideas and create sustainable solutions within urban development.

Plymouth is one of the most unique and diverse natural environments of any city in the country with over 30 per cent of the city designated as green space. As part of the city’s growth, it’s important to encourage residents from across the city to embrace the outdoors.

Using scientific and creative digital tools, Green Minds focuses on making nature more visible and exciting and combines urban development and land management to inspire people to change their attitudes and behaviours through urban rewilding projects.
