Open Letter to Birmingham
Thursday 22nd December, 2016

Everyone benefits from the natural spaces of our city. We need to start a conversation about a new way to fund the essential lungs of our city. Below is an open letter to Birmingham calling for this conversation to begin signed by 35 organisations including national, regional and community groups.
