St Johns is going Green!

St Johns is going Green!

September 18, 2019

Have you seen the news? We are introducing an innovative giant living wall, part of a global effort to increase green space in the city centre.

The installation, one of the largest outside of London, will stretch across the outside of the upper floor of the centre, visible from the pedestrianised areas from Queens Square Bus Station.

The 50m long green wall is funded through the EU Horizon 2020 project “Urban GreenUP” and is one of several green projects that are set to get underway in the city, which recently declared a Climate Emergency, over the next six months.

Liverpool’s Urban GreenUP programme has been awarded nearly £3.5million of European funding to tackle issues such as biodiversity, flooding, climate change, air quality and health and wellbeing through ‘nature-based solutions’.

Partners in the five-year project include Liverpool City Council, The Mersey Forest, Liverpool BID Company and the University of Liverpool, as well as organisations in Valladolid (Spain) and Izmir (Turkey), and five more cities across the world.

Centre Manager, Neil Ashcroft, said: “At St Johns Shopping Centre we are always seeking ways to bring wider benefits to the communities we serve. Green space in city centres plays an important role in improving physical and mental health, as well as improving air quality. With a clear aspiration to install a living wall at the Centre, we did our research and partnered with the Mersey Forest team to make it happen. We have worked hard with landlords, tenants and partners to drive this ground-breaking project forward and it is great to see this important milestone reached.”

We’re looking forward to seeing the project complete!🍃
