Planning better green spaces for our communities
25 February 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Darwin’s parks and gardens provide a cool haven in the tropical capital city. These green spaces are the backdrop for markets, family get-togethers, festivals, first dates, picnics with mates, sunset functions and countless other events. The City of Darwin has over 600 hectares of parks, gardens and foreshore areas under their care. To improve these areas, first city planners need to understand how different user groups in Darwin interact with green spaces: how do their needs and preferences for amenities and benefits vary?
This webinar will provide insights from projects and research from around Australia on how green space can be planned for community benefits including adaption to climate change impacts.
The discussion is relevant for planners, consultants, students, researchers and anyone with an interest in how to reflect diverse community values and preferences in urban greening strategies.
