The Children’s Wood on North Kelvin Meadow, and the Meadow itself, make up the last wild space in the west-end of Glasgow. The land is currently under threat – the council want to sell the land for high-end housing.

This space is vitally important to the community. Regular events are organised by the community in The Children’s Wood, designed to connect children to nature, raise aspirations and bring people together. Some children who’ve been to the Children’s Wood through local schools have said this is the first time they’ve been outside to play in months, or ever. We think being outside in a wild environment is a great antidote to the current materialistic and indoor childhood which many young people now experience. On top of this, The Children’s Wood is situated near some of the most unequal areas in Scotland – we think the land is invaluable for building a better future for young people and families in the area.
