Better Outside - Resource Pack

About 'Better Outside'

Our parks and greenspaces have been a lifeline for many during lockdown. A series of resources published in March 2021 by greenspace scotland will help communities, schools, health centres and other groups to use our parks and greenspaces more.

As restrictions start to cautiously ease and we continue to adapt to living with Covid-19, Better outside – using our spaces more provides examples, ideas, inspiration and resources for taking indoor activities outside.

The Better Outside toolkit features projects and inspiring ideas, together with downloadable resources which provide more information about making it happen, things to consider, who can help and real-life examples. There are also Technical Resources and a colourful Ideas Source Book which provides ideas and examples of seats, shelters, storage, lights and WiFi from low cost interventions for as little as £5 per person to more ambitious projects that would require professional support and planning.


Here, the Green Flag Award are hosting the Resource Pack - but if you'd like to explore the wider range of materials produced as part of this initiative you can visit:
