Green infrastructure does not receive anything like the investment or management that goes into grey infrastructure.

Grey to green aims to fuel a debate about whether this is smart, given the dangers of climate change and the opportunities to improve public health. It also reveals the urgent need for more people, with the right skills, to manage the living landscape of our towns and cities.

It provides fresh ideas and evidence, showing how we could design and manage places in radically different ways. It will be of interest to anyone involved in making the built environment greener, but above all to the people taking decisions about where to commit public money at a local and a national level.
