Project:

This PhD focuses on learning from how communities have come together to preserve and/or rewild their local space/environmental assets in urban spaces. Examples of such spaces include existing ‘green’ spaces such as parks, community gardens and ‘blue’ spaces urban waterways as well as ‘brown’ spaces such as industrial spaces now abandoned or currently unoccupied. The project will involve working with urban communities to create an underpinning ethos of knowledge exchange to promote learning from and with its members. A key dimension of the project will be to consider how communities can not only contribute to this research, but can also access and ‘own’ such knowledge. 

This project will examine the range of place-based and community-led environmental initiatives, action groups and networks. It will explore how local groups based in different communities (e.g. residential housing estates) link up with a range of environmental and other networks across the city of Hull. It will deploy participatory approaches to learn from the lived experiences and environmental activists and groups involved in collective place-based stewardship. The project will further explore ways of linking up to regional policy research initiatives such as Y-PIP and Y-PERN, and locally such as the successful Ideas Fund project involving needs-led, community groups across the city.

The project will be supervised by an interdisciplinary team including academics from the environmental sciences, human geography and education.
