LI hosts inaugural meeting of new Parks and Green Space Network

The new Parks and Green Space Network – a network of nearly 50 parks and green space organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors – has held its inaugural Zoom meeting.

The Network, hosted by the Landscape Institute (LI) and created in partnership with The Parks Alliance (TPA), comprises nearly 50 parks and green space organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors across the UK.

It aims to provide a UK-wide voice for parks and public green spaces, and the people and organisations that create, maintain, invest in and use them. The Network will work collaboratively and inclusively across the sector to promote parks and green spaces at the local, regional, national and international levels.

In its first meeting, the network agreed its priorities for a post-COVID Green Recovery

In its first meeting, the Network:

  • agreed its priorities for a post-COVID Green Recovery
  • identified key leadership themes for the coming year
  • signed up to develop a new Level 3 Apprenticeship Programme, aimed at young people who are underrepresented in the parks sector, to help make a parks profession fit for the future

The Network also discussed plans to extend the new Chartered Landscape Professional qualification to existing parks managers, as well as plans for a new resource to better publicise academic research into the benefits of parks and green spaces.

The Network will continue to develop over the coming months, establishing a social media presence and strengthening its links within the sector and other key stakeholders.
