Green Belt walk blogs

The Eighth part of our Director Kat’s fundraising walk around the Green Belt of Greater Glasgow. This time, a very short jaunt from Cleland to Carfin in North Lanarkshire via one of the largest derelict sites in Europe, Ravenscraig.

What We Said

APRS has responded to a Government consultation on the Human Rights Bill for Scotland and we welcome the inclusion of a Right to a Healthy Environment. This could be transformative for communities challenging unsustainable, polluting and damaging activities and developments in their area.

Double Decker Bus in Glasgow

News

APRS today is lending our support for the Better Buses for Strathclyde Campaign. Excellent public transport networks are the foundation of a fairer society and an essential part of reducing our carbon emissions. We need far better public transport provision for people who live on the edges of towns and cities and in rural neighbourhoods which means, in most cases, better buses.

The latest episode of Kat’s fundraising walk around the Green Belt of Greater Glasgow. This section takes her from Greenhead Moss Community Nature Park on the outskirts of Wishaw down Garrion Gill, an SSSI and an impassable jungle.

What We Said

APRS has responded to the consultation on the Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill. In summary our view is that the bill, as it stands, needs considerable improvement if it is to drive Scotland’s transition towards a circular economy. Waste should be seen as a systemic issue, and we need greater provisions for producer responsibility rather than the blame lying solely on individuals.
