The Edinburgh Thrive Line will connect places and spaces which can promote and improve mental health and wellbeing. We had invited participants at our Thrive Conference back in November 2019 to plot places and spaces on the Thrive Line which were important to their mental health and wellbeing. Participants plotted and nominated an eclectic mix of places which are detailed in our Thrive Conference Report. Our next intention was to provide one hour Thriving Places and Spaces training session to these places nominated to join to the Thrive Line. Due to Covid 19 we have not been able to progress this however during this time of social and physical distancing we are mindful that people may be discovering or rediscovering places and spaces which are important to you in terms of how they make you feel, how they connect or reconnect you to what is important to you.
We would love for you to share these places and spaces with us and we will add to the Edinburgh Thrive Line. We will then invite people that may work, volunteer or spend time in these places and spaces a one hour “Thriving Spaces and Places” Seminar so that we can make sure that places and spaces on the Thrive Line are aware of how kindness, compassion and relationships are essential components of protecting and promoting our individual and city’s mental health and wellbeing.
If you would like to send in your photos of your ‘Thrive Spaces’ then you can do so by filling out the form below, letting us know where it is and why it is important to you. Below you can see some of the images that we have received from our citizens.
