EVENT: Urban Green Spaces
Just found out about an event taking place in London this week.
Urban Green Spaces: Sustaining the Renaissance
A One-Day Conference
10 March 2005, One Great George Street, London
The value of good quality green spaces is not in doubt. They can make a crucial contribution to the quality of the environment and to people’s standard of living generally. But delivering and maintaining green spaces is still being hampered by a shortage of funding and skills, the result of a generation of underinvestment and diminishing numbers of landscape professionals.
Organised by Regeneration & Renewal magazine, this one-day conference will bring together some of the key thinkers, policy makers and practitioners attempting to overcome these barriers and bring about green space renaissance. The day will feature strategic and practical presentations aimed at anyone involved in trying to improve the “liveability” of our towns and cities.
Keynote Speaker: Peter Matthew, Divisional Manager of the Liveable and Sustainable Communities Division, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister
Sir Clive Booth, Chair, Big Lottery Fund
Julia Thrift, Director, CABE Space
Dr Stewart Harding BA (Hons) PhD MILAM, Director, Parks Agency & GreenSpace
Kelvin Campbell, Director, Urban Initiatives
John Meehan, Director, Thames Chase Community Forest
