8. The perfect model: what we’ve learned from the Rethinking Parks pioneers


The Rethinking Parks programme has unveiled an extraordinary group of park pioneers, with practitioners exploring and trailing innovative new approaches to sustainability and design. Supported by the Heritage Fund and Community Fund, in collaboration with Nesta, the programme has shed new light on governance models, approaches to income generation streams and application of usage data. This session aims to inspire all those working in public parks services, whether in a planning, design or delivery capacity. Come and gain grounding in the current best practice in parks innovation.
