m2 To the vision

About this organisation

The Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust is committed to connecting people with plants and to create a better understanding of the importance of conserving plants for future generations. Having the capacity to connect people with plants in urban environments is essential to helping the Trust fulfill its mission. Separately, the tranquility and wellbeing of providing urban residents with green spaces is of vital importance to the Trust and its stewardship of both lands and scientific and horticultural knowledge.

Why we support the vision

Unless we actively plan and rally for trees, we are likely to have reduced green areas by 2020, not more. Development is understandably driven by financial profit, so unless green spaces are a mandatory requirement, there will be limited and ad hoc interest in retaining green spaces and opportunities to engage with nature for new developments and generations.
