APSE is pleased to announce this unique opportunity to examine the public value of UK Parks, innovative approaches to park management and new ways of securing local engagement with park life.
This seminar will include the outcome of the APSE State of the Parks Survey 2015, a progress update on the 11 RE-thinking Parks projects (Nesta, Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund (England)) and explore ways of engaging the local community through social media, volunteer programmes and in the management of sports pitches and allotments.
Speakers include Sue Ireland, City of London Corporation regarding the Parks Alliance’s recent advocacy work, Daniel Raven-Ellison, Guerrilla Geographer who is spear-heading the campaign to make London a National Park City, Nick Grayson from Birmingham City Council will be sharing about the Biophilic Cities project and Emma Phillimore (DEFRA) will be speaking about the recently written National Pollinator Strategy.
A day not to be missed, this will be an inspiring and informative day, with wonderful opportunities to meet and speak with others engaged in addressing the challenges of delivering Parks and Open Space services today.
