APSE Parks and Greenspaces Online Seminar

Kindly Sponsored By:

View the programme here

Humans have existed very much in a much a rural style society for thousands of years. However over the past three centuries, human development and living space has become more urbanised, with buildings and pavements replacing the fields and pathways our ancestors would have recognised. Yet despite this shift in society there is still a strong desire to retain our links with greenspaces and the natural world. This association has become even more apparent during the world-wide pandemic, when greenspaces and parks have become refuges for millions of people across the globe, as other places of recreation and social interaction have been closed.

It has been recognised that our public parks and the wider green and blue infrastructure, are playing a critical role in maintaining the nation’s mental and physical health and overall wellbeing. 
By providing places for everyday exercise, and recreation, parks (both urban and countryside) haven show themselves to be a vital part of our lives, especially as many of us are now having to increasingly limit our daily movements to home-working.

Yet despite their value, parks and greenspaces are still facing unprecedented budgetary cuts, which are threatening their future existence.
