Rethinking the future of parks - 13 Oct 2020 09:30 – 12:30

There are over 27,000 urban greenspaces in the UK, with more than half the UK population regularly making use of them. The COVID-19 pandemic has reignited the wider debate over public and private greenspace, yet they remain an area underfunded and often in need of innovation and development. What can we do to change that?

This event examined key topics relating to the future of parks and greenspaces based on learning from innovators in the field. It explored what it will take to create a future parks sector that is thriving, sustainable and of benefit to all.

This event included speakers and presentations on work from across the Rethinking Parks and Future Parks Accelerator programmes, as well as the opportunity for debate and discussion and the development of a future vision for the sector. The event is aimed at people involved in the management and development of parks and greenspaces as well as parks innovators and enthusiasts.

Videos from the event will be uploaded shortly.
