Realising Environmental and Social Gains

Not everything about the impact of Covid-19 on the world has been negative. Many have noted the incidental benefits to the environment, and the way in which we have collectively and individually re-appraised how we relate to our families, friends and communities.

As we emerge from the most stringent constraints that created those conditions, businesses are starting to consider how these positives can be implemented, maintained and expanded. The Keele Research and Innovation Support Programme can bring creative thinking and fresh perspectives to bear on how your business can build on these unexpected gains for everyone's benefit.

Case Study

A leading landscape contractor which specialises in school garden projects utilised the Keele Research and Innovation Support Programme (KRISP) programme to measure the impact of their environmental and social services.

“The work that we’ve completed with Keele has provided us with a whole range of ideas and a strong profile of what we do, helping to showcase the positive outcomes that can be achieved by taking the classroom outside. Research has also helped to highlight the benefits of outdoor learning to children with special educational needs."
