From Mayfield Park and Ancoats Green, to ground-breaking blue-green workspace roofs and Europe’s largest living wall, incredible new green spaces are emerging across Manchester.

This session with Civic Engineers will explore how we can build on the transformative work that has already been done and be more ambitious in the delivery of green infrastructure? What cost-benefits will green infrastructure bring to the city, and how can we capture the boost to the regional economy?
