Creating a healthy and child-friendly street for Great Ormond Street Childrens’ Hospital

10 June 2021

18:25 -19:25

Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital (GOSH), the first UK children’s hospital and London NHS Trust to declare a Climate & Health Emergency, is advancing plans for a healthy and child-friendly public realm to support sick children, their carers and the staff, and the surrounding community suffering the effects of deprivation and lack of access to green space.

Architect Magali Thomson, Project Lead for Placemaking at GOSH, talks about the strategies and challenges entailed in advancing this holistic vision responding to Camden Council’s Climate Emergency and Healthy Streets strategy with urban greening for biodiversity, trees for cooling and reducing the urban heat island effect, plants improving air quality and acting as sound absorbers, and SuDS enabling water absorption and filtration, as well as Making London Child-Friendly, the 2020 GLA Good Growth by Design Report.

This is a Temple Bar Trust online event with the opportunity to ask questions as part of a Q&A via the chat function.
