Proludic are proud to be supporting the Green Connect Conference this year.

What will the future look like for parks after the General Election? 

One of the most successful ways in which the green spaces sector is adapting to the twin challenges of “austerity” and public health is the growth in the role and value of volunteers and community groups. Without them, some parks would have become at best unwelcoming and at worst, “no-go” areas with people unable to access the considerable benefits they provide.

This, Green Connect’s second major conference, will provide information and inspiration and opportunities for collaboration:

  • looking at what the main political parties are saying about green spaces so you are ready for the next 5 years;
  • learn from the charitable sector how to support and train volunteers
  • hear from some inspiring projects supporting volunteers and community groups to provide great services for themselves including food growing and green gyms
  • learn about how to approach the possibility of community or Town/Parish council management of green spaces
  • get an update on two innovative new parks management projects in the region.

SPEAKERS so far:

  • TCV The Conservation Volunteers
