Jago Keen

Even in towns and cities people have a deep connection with nature. Denial of that connection leads to diminished physiological and psychological wellbeing.

Society functions best when it is embedded in natural green spaces; green spaces where people live, play and work.

Research is now proving what we as individuals already know – that green space in our towns and cities is good – but it is placing values on what that means for commercial, retail and residential spaces in which we live, play and work.

In this presentation we will take an overview of that research and the need to harness its findings in policy and guidance to build ‘strong and stable’ places for society.

Jago Keen has qualifications and experience in arboriculture and nature conservation and applies complex system thinking to the challenges presented by town planning, green infrastructure management and projection planning. He has two decades experience spent in the ‘natural capital’ sector, managing natural assets to ensure ecosystem services are delivered.

In private practice as an international green infrastructure consultant, Jago Keen is consulted by clients in local government, healthcare trusts, property development companies and private individuals, throughout the UK and Eurasia, to deliver pragmatic solutions to build resilient ecosystem provision.

Jago was, until recently, chairman of the Arboricultural Association in the United Kingdom.
