Britain's National Parks and Social Diversity
Posted on 23rd February 2020
Do Britain's National Parks have a diversity issue? That's the question asked in a recent PM programme on Radio 4
National Park visitors and managers were interviewed for a feature on the PM programme recently on diversity in Britain's National Parks - or rather, the lack of it. We know that the National Parks have an 'image problem' in that the chief user-groups are disproportionately white, middle-aged and middle-class compared to the UK's population as a whole. And if there are psychological barriers to others using them, what are they and how can they be overcome? The Mosaic Project was successful in encouraging a broader spectrum of visitors but funding for that ended some time ago. You can listen to the feature here - it starts just after 24 minutes into the programme (it's available for about a month).
