Kent Downs AONB Report – Enhancing Access Opportunities

Kent AONB Report

Maxwell Ayamba has contributed to the key findings of a report published by The Kent Downs AONB unit that looked at improving access to AONB (Areas of Natural Beauty) and rural and farmland spaces.

With the recent issues faced by diverse groups of people from urban spaces when they visited  green and blue spaces after the 1st and 2nd UK wide lockdown, the reports findings are both timely and relevant.

Out of Bounds Report

Maxwell Ayamba of SEM recentrly contributed to ‘Out of Bounds – Equity in access to urban nature” a national report published in May 2021. Produced by Groundwork, the multi agency report is an “overview of the evidence on equity in urban green spaces”. This important report, like the work of SEM, makes critical connections between social justice and public spaces, community cohesion and health inequalities.

The report provides more evidence of the need and benefits of improving access to public ‘green’ spaces (parks, nature reserves, community gardens, city farms, and woodland) and public ‘blue’ spaces (rivers, lakes, ponds, canals and the sea), for disadvantaged communities.

You can read the report on the Groundwork website.

Groundwork is a federation of charities working locally and nationally to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.
