LI Webinar: Collaboration is essential for historic parks & green spaces

Series overview:

In partnership with Historic England and Green Flag Award, the Landscape Institute (LI) hosted a webinar series about the design, management and maintenance of historic public green spaces. The three webinars explored our public park and green space heritage and its green infrastructure role; restoration, stewardship, collaboration and future-proofing.

This session:

Working with communities to conserve and protect their historic green spaces, the second webinar will focus on collaboration. Discussions will delve into the role of heritage in creating a sense of belonging and community cohesion, welcoming and accessible places. Examples will provide insights into successful partnerships; addressing community needs; reinstating lost facilities and features; and financial models for long-term sustainability.

Hosted by the LI, speakers will include representatives from LUC, HTA and the Midlands Parks Forum. Join this free webinar open to all LI members and non-members.
