Equitable Park Investments 3 Cities – 3 Stories

Equity in service delivery is a guiding concern of urban park leaders. This presentation will explore how this interest can be turned to a tangible action that makes public parks better for all city residents. Three legacy urban centers with remarkable diversity in the heartland of America – Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Louisville – decided to create new comprehensive investment action plans for their park systems focused on driving equitable access to, and investments in, public parks and recreation services and systems for all city residents. These three cities shared a general goal – overcome barriers and historical challenges in the delivery of their park system services that will allow them to prioritize serving the people and neighborhoods that have long been forgotten, underserved, and marginalized. The action plans of all three cities are based on the principal that everyone, every neighborhood, and every city deserves access to a great public park system, and thus look holistically at the needs of every park, the needs of every neighborhood, and the creation of a system where the public can clearly shape improvement plans. This session will provide attendees with an overview of developing equitable and transparent investment action plans while exploring the unique opportunities and challenges discovered in each of these three cities. This workshop will be given in English and will not have an Spanish translation.

Express Workshop: The Big Sit x World Urban Parks Don't just do something, sit there

The Big Sit was born out of a premise to bring people together to practice mindfulness meditation in the city. Organized by Mindful Moments in collaboration with the Conscious Cities Index research project, and initiated by a group of volunteers, the first Big Sit took place on Mindfulness Day on 12 September 2020 at Urban Park, Guoco Tower in the CBD of Singapore. The Big Sit has since taken place regularly at various places including Urban Park and Gardens By The Bay in Singapore, as well as London, with the aim of driving purposeful use of urban spaces in the city to improve the mental health and wellbeing of citizens, as well as collectively build a healthier and more conscious society. We envision that The Big Sit will inspire more people to make intentional use of spaces in their cities to practice mindfulness and be able to eventually extend these skills to their personal and professional lives. What to prepare: -Participants are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes earlier to set up their practice space. -Participants are encouraged to dress in comfortable clothing and shoes, and bring along their own yoga mat / large towel to sit on, as well as drinking water.

Propuesta: Clasificación operativa de espacios públicos para el Municipio de Mérida.

El Ayuntamiento de Mérida fortalece el Sistema de Gestión de Espacios Públicos a fin de contar con espacios públicos completos. Los espacios completos son lugares que promueven el encuentro social y el desarrollo de diferentes usos y actividades para el disfrute público, que son parte de la infraestructura verde generadora de ambientes reguladores del clima y del paisaje urbano, que articulan la estructura urbana, vinculan los usos del suelo y propician las actividades económicas, y que presentan condiciones adecuadas de accesibilidad, inclusión, confort e imagen que fomentan la identidad y el sentido de pertenencia. Sin embargo, uno de los retos más importantes a los que se enfrenta la administración pública municipal para alcanzar esa visión de ciudad es contar con información clara, objetiva, confiable, sistematizada y geográficamente referenciada de los espacios públicos. De hecho, la información existe; sin embargo, nombramos los espacios públicos de variadas formas y los clasificamos por criterios diferentes. Por eso, reviste particular importancia llegar a acuerdos operativos que nos permitan planear, diseñar, construir, mantener, controlar y evaluar nuestros espacios públicos. Por eso, es importante caracterizar y clasificar los espacios públicos de Mérida de manera unificada. Una clasificación permite identificar atributos y elementos de los espacios públicos de Mérida y, a partir de su organización en tipos, diferenciarlos y denominarlos. Eso es sólo el principio de un proceso orientado a conocer, evaluar y transformar nuestros parques, plazas y calles. Esta clasificación de espacios públicos debe de ser vista como uno más de los trabajos, de coordinación transversal entre las dependencias municipales, que compartimos con los meridanos.

Rescate del Río Cupatitzio

Rescatar los 11 kilómetros de longitud del afluente que cruza el área urbana, a través de la creación de parques lineales. Esta intervención permite la creación de corredores verdes que incluyen espacios públicos para el desarrollo del deporte y la cultura, además que el río forma parte de los barrios tradicionales de la ciudad y que unen al centro histórico. Actualmente se han implementado 1.5 km de parques, pero la potencialidad de la rivera del río es de 11 kilómetros, unidos por 2 espacios para su recreación, donde nace el Río en el Parque Nacional y donde termina el área urbana con la caída conocida como la Tzararacua.

IDENTIFICACIÓN DE DIFERENTES INSECTOS POLINIZADORES DE CUATRO PARQUES DE LA CIUDAD LATACUNGA

Los parques seleccionados para la investigación son San Francisco, Vicente León, La Filantropía e Ignacio Flores. Se realizó una colecta activa mediante el uso de red entomológica y una colecta pasiva mediante el uso de trampas cromáticas-pegajosas y trampas con cebo. Las muestras fueron conservadas en alcohol al 70% para luego realizar el montaje y toma de fotografías para subirlas a la Aplicación iNaturalist, posterior en la aplicación ayudan con la identificación. Para los índices de diversidad y similaridad se utilizó la ecuación de Shannon-Wiener y Sorensen respectivamente. Para las trampas cromáticas-pegajosas se colectaron 1650 individuos, en las trampas con atrayente se colectaron 7 individuos y con la red entomológica 1150 individuos, para su identificación se consideró solo a los individuos que fueron colectados con la red entomológica. Descartando a los individuos que no están considerados como polinizadores dando un total de 880 individuos polinizadores, con tres órdenes y ocho familias. La familia Sarcophagidae que tiene el 62% del total de abundancia dentro de los cuatro parques. Se determinó que los 880 individuos polinizadores colectados dentro de los cuatro parques representan un índice de diversidad mediante la ecuación de Shannon-Wiener equivalente a 0.87 que demuestra que se tiene una diversidad baja. Además se demuestra una similaridad significativa de 92.3% entre el parque Vicente León y el parque Ignacio Flores.

Modelo de Gestión Colaborativa (MGC) para la recuperación de espacios públicos.

Esta sesión analizará los elementos básicos del MGC que involucra a la iniciativa privada, organizaciones de la sociedad civil y ciudadanos en la creación de espacios públicos incluyentes. Se centrará en los diferentes mecanismos que hacen posible la suma de esfuerzos en la toma de decisiones en el ámbito local y cómo esta participación ofrece nuevas oportunidades, más transparencia, eficiencia en la gestión y calidad de las obras emprendidas. El proyecto de la “Glorieta Tepeyac” es una aplicación exitosa del Modelo de Gestión Colaborativa donde abordaremos las condiciones particulares, apreciación de la necesidad, técnicas de participación social, legitimación del proyecto, aspectos operativos de la ejecución y formas administrativas que se tradujeron en la necesidad de incorporar un elemento cualitativo de diseño que rebasa ampliamente los contenidos de los planes directores convencionales centrados fundamentalmente en aspectos normativos. El rescate de espacios públicos erróneamente se ha abordado en términos constructivos (formal y funcional) dejando de lado la dimensión social de la arquitectura y el urbanismo.

Follow up strategies with remote sensing for management of newly planted sites.

With the reduction in the cost of analysis and processing of information, the evolution of SaaS and the availability of satellite images (together with the increase in resolution), nowadays it perfectly viable to develop methodologies to use remote images with SIG to do a follow up of urban forest management. The ease and widespread use of mobile devices allow to locate any picture easily and later import it into a SIG to have a visual confirmation of observations made in the field. The following paper shows how to translate a Park inventory and reforestation data base (from i-Tree) first to a commercial SIG tool to follow up on conditions and development. Second, with another SaaS image handler follow up on tree health with NDVI measurements. These measurements are derived from images of the PLANETSCOPE satellite constellation that has a 3 m/pixel resolution. With these images it is possible to create a baseline to compare current values of NDVI and therefore have a workflow that allows to detect potential threats to trees in urban situations and react accordingly.

Assessing the Social Sustainability of Parque Central in Juárez, Mexico

Urban parks, especially large ones, play a crucial role in urban sustainability. Although the social axis of sustainability in parks has been thoroughly addressed in developed countries, this important indicator has not been fully understood in developing countries. Moreover, when it comes to studying urban parks, the social perspective is often approached from the point of view of a limited set of disciplines, thus leaving many issues unaddressed along the way. This paper aims to develop an evaluation strategy that takes into account 11 variables to assess the social sustainability of an urban park. A survey (n=388) was conducted in the Central Park of Juarez, Mexico. The study covered two seasons (winter and summer) and two weekday scenarios (weekdays and weekends). The study made it possible to identify usage patterns, frequency of visitation, time spent and other social variables related to the social sustainability axis. The results are discussed in light of the social importance of urban parks, providing strategies for improving sustainability and closing management gaps. Finally, conclusions are presented, as well as an agenda for future research.

Neuronic Parks

This presentation looks at the concept that I have called ’Neuronic Parks’. This term refers to the neurological pathways unitised in the brain which allow us to access feelings of well-being, logic, muscular responses, future planning and our sense of being. By extrapolating the modality of our neurological pathways and considering the basic mechanism of synaptic linking through dendrites and neuron response we can develop planning concepts that create more sustainable, more connected, and more multifaceted parkways, greenways, and blue-ways. As urbanisation intensifies, we must consider the space we require to connect communities first, through planning models that create connectivity rather than allowing our parkways to be relegated to isolated pockets of green-space within communities often provisoned by the developer of the land. The concept of Neuronic Parks connects local pocket parks with National Parks utilising existing greenways, sports fields, shopping centres, local parks, coastal walkways, beaches, empty land and bridal trails etc by creating new ‘pathways’ that are strengthened and expanded or conversely, minimised and reduced based on inter-community usage and designed accessibility.

Infancia y Ciudad: el juego y la participación en los espacios abiertos

El juego urbano y la participación infantil en procesos urbanos son dos ejercicios básicos para el desarrollo integral de la infancia. El primero se limita debido a una pobre oferta de espacios abiertos y de una casi inexistente oferta de espacios públicos urbanos de juego; el segundo se limita por la carencia de mecanismos vinculantes concebidos para que niñas y niños puedan emitir opiniones, propuestas o interrogantes sobre la forma en la que se está modificando el entorno urbano en el que habitan, y que afecta su calidad de vida. Sin embargo, ambas cuestiones son parte de los derechos de la infancia reconocidos internacionalmente, y ratificados en México; por lo tanto, al no garantizárselos, se está automáticamente negando la importancia que tienen.

Childhood and the City: play and participation in open spaces

Urban play and children's participation in urban processes are two basic exercises for the comprehensive development of children. The first is limited due to a poor offer of open spaces and an almost non-existent offer of urban public spaces for play; the second is limited by the lack of binding mechanisms designed so that girls and boys can express opinions, proposals or questions about the way in which the urban environment where they live is being modified, and that affects their quality of life. However, both issues are part of the internationally recognized children's rights, and ratified in Mexico; therefore, by not guaranteeing them, we are automatically denying their importance.

Entre resistencias y paradojas. Historia del Parque de Educación Ambiental Granja Amojileca.

La ciudad de Chilpancingo, Guerrero, es la primera capital nacional de México. Ninguna otra localidad del país tiene el privilegio histórico de haber atestiguado la instauración del Primer Congreso de Anáhuac, la promulgación de los Sentimientos de la Nación —el antecedente primigenio de nuestra Constitución Política— y la firma del primer documento de Independencia frente a España. Desde 1970 es la sede de los poderes del estado de la República erigido como tal en 1849 en honor al consumador de la guerra de Independencia: Vicente Guerrero Saldaña. A pesar de eso, es la capital estatal más rezagada en todos los sentidos, particularmente en servicios de entretenimiento colectivo para los vecinos y sus familias: sólo ha contado por décadas con dos espacios propios de convivencia: el zoológico Zoochilpan (1978) y el Museo La Avispa (1998). En 2015 se le consideró la peor ciudad para vivir en México y en 2018 figuró entre las seis ciudades más inseguras del país. Además, el río que apuntalaba su ecosistema, ha sido extinguido a su paso por la zona urbana para convertirlo en colector de aguas negras. En ese contexto inmensamente adverso se fundó el Parque de Educación Ambiental Granja Amojileca como una iniciativa académica de vinculación que durante más de quince años ha sido el proyecto más exitoso en toda la Historia de la Universidad Autónoma de Guerrero, con el registro insólito de más de un millón de visitantes a un lugar sin atractivos naturales, con la imaginación y voluntad altruista y creativa de una familia, y un equipo de trabajo de profesores, estudiantes y vecinos, a partir de la labor de conservación del venado cola blanca, como sitio ancla, y una serie de servicios complementarios de recreación educativa, labor que mantiene al espacio como el único en su tipo en todo el sur del país. Su plan mercadológico original, fundado en la imagen de una resortera como arma para promover la cultura de la Paz, lo ha convertido en el principal espacio de convivencia familiar y grupal en la primera capital del país, a 500 años de la caída de la gran Tenochtitlán, a 200 años de consumada la guerra de Independencia y en la plena vigencia de la modernidad tecnológica.

As an urban national park, the central focus of the Presidio is to transform a historic former army base into parkland that is inclusive and accessible to all, particularly communities that have traditionally been underrepresented in national parks -- BIPOC and low-income visitors, and visitors with disabilities. This session will explore how the renewal of the derelict freeway approach to the Golden Gate Bridge propelled a vision to create 14-acres of new parklands — the Presidio Tunnel Tops — over the top of new freeway tunnels. Community action, private philanthropy, and excellent design were marshaled to create a multi-faceted place for renewal, play and civic gathering designed to transform the Presidio of San Francisco into a national park site for all.

Corredor de Bienestar en la Ribera del Río Cupatitzio

En la ciudad de Uruapan, existe carencia y poca accesibilidad a espacios públicos deportivos, culturales y recreativos al aire libre, principalmente en la cabecera municipal se tienen 4.2 m2 por habitante cuando el mínimo aceptable por la OMS es de 9 m2. Como resultado de lo anterior, Uruapan se ha propuesta una meta para la creación de un corredor de bienestar en las riberas del río Cupatitzio, que ayude al rescate de los 11 kilómetros de longitud, desde la manantial rodilla del diablo que provee agua a la ciudad, hasta la caída conocida como la Tzararacua, desde el año 2000 se han impulsado iniciativas, y para 2020 se han concluído 2 etapas. Estos espacios son potenciales para desarrollar corredores deportivos, recreativos, culturales y económicos mientras se restaura un ecosistema urbano. Además, la implementación de geovallas ayudará a proporcionar información como el cuidado de la salud, la cultura y/o promociones de negocios en las cercanías que ayudan a la reactivación económica del comercio. La recuperación del corredor permitirá incrementar el área de espacios públicos por habitantes, a reducir las emisiones de los Gases de Efecto Invernadero, disminuir las islas de calor, el saneamiento de las aguas y la visibilización del río.

Por a veces no resulta fácil su gestión, muchas veces las mismas comunidades beneficiarias, son reacias a la creación de nuevas áreas públicas. En muchas localidades de Tucumán – Argentina, la falta de espacio público, es respaldada por el destino privatizado, fraccionario e individualizado del territorio. Existe un entendimiento generalizado sobre el espacio público, parques y plazas, como áreas solo de las grandes ciudades. Tomando el caso del proyecto OCUMEN (Observatorio Cultural los Menhires) esta sesión propone se analizar los múltiples desafíos que encuentra en el camino el proyecto. Cómo insertar un parque urbano, en un territorio con necesidades básicas sin resolver. Cuán real y medible es el beneficio de crear un parque integrador.

La réconciliation et les parcs publics

La réconciliation, une préoccupation nationale, a été intégrée au cadre stratégique du Plan directeur du parc Jean-Drapeau. Nous y présenterons les stratégies et les démarches effectuées pour assurer sa mise en oeuvre à partir d'actions concrètes. Les États et les municipalités ont aujourd’hui la responsabilité de mettre en oeuvre les principes nationaux et internationaux en matière de réconciliation. Le parc Jean-Drapeau, plus grand et ancien parc de Montréal, qui porte en lui l’héritage autochtone, en a fait une priorité et une orientation stratégique. La transformation annoncée dans son plan directeur fera du parc un lieu plus accessible, diversifié, vert et public. L’abondance d’expériences, de patrimoines, d’espaces et de contact avec les gens, le paysage et la nature répondra aux besoins et aspirations des citoyens de même qu’aux enjeux des parcs urbains. L’inclusion, comme principe directeur, guide notre manière de penser, d’aborder et d’aménager le parc. C’est dans ce contexte que nous avons développé notre engagement envers la vérité et la réconciliation. La démarche effectuée depuis 2019, l’élaboration d’un plan d’action et les principales actions mise en œuvre en 2021 seront présentées. Par cela, nous espérons inciter d’autres gestionnaires de parcs à s’investir envers les peuples autochtones et la valorisation de leur présence historique et de leurs pratiques culturelles, tout en ouvrant la discussion sur d’autre initiatives à privilégier pour développer ce nouveau champ d’expertise en architecture de paysage et en gouvernance de parc public.

Australian Cloud Forest Garden – Botanic Gardens and Ex situ Conservation

The Australian Cloud Forest Collection (ACFC) is a new feature garden for the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden in Olinda, Victoria, Australia. Designed to showcase and conserve endangered flora from Queensland's Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The project is part of the multi-agency Tropical Mountain Plants Science Project, led by the Australian Tropical Herbarium at James Cook University (Cairns), Australian National Botanic Garden (Canberra) and the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria (Cranbourne), and is focused on the conservation of mountain top of Far North Queensland. These mountain top ecosystems are unique globally, with many of the species, both plants and animals, found nowhere else on earth. Climate modelling predicts this area could be subject to drastic habitat loss within as little as 15 years, with droughts in the cloud forest being longer, hotter, drier and more frequent. The aim of the project is to collect and secure the most diverse 'captive' collection possible, holding them in ex-situ conservation collections in multiple botanic gardens, including the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Garden. The flagship species of this display will be the two species of native Rhododendrons. Designed by Andrea Proctor Landscapes and supported by the Australian Rhododendron Society and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the project is now at construction phase and will be a great new visitor facility with important conservation outcomes.

El papel educativo ambiental de los bosques urbanos

La educación ambiental es un medio transformador de la realidad socioambiental, metamorfosis que de manera urgente se necesita para acceder a una alternativa de vida que restaure los efectos de la Mega crisis ambiental en la cual estamos sumergidos todos los seres vivos de este planeta y así restablecer la relación de reciprocidad humano-ambiente. Los parques y bosques urbanos debido a sus características y a la dinámica social que se desarrolla en ellos poseen un potencial enorme como centros de educación y cultura ambiental y afortunadamente algunos lo aprovechan poniendo en práctica programas educativos ambientales, sin embargo, es común encontrar esfuerzos planteados de manera reduccionistas que no logran alcanzar un nivel alto de formación. De aquí parte la importancia de establecer un modelo de evaluación que resalte los principios pedagógicos ambientales aplicados en los programas, cuestione sus logros y facilite la propuesta de mejoras que contribuyan verdaderamente a la trasformación socioambiental. El presente modelo de evaluación aún se encuentra en desarrollo y es parte del proyecto de tesis de la autora para lograr el título de Maestra en Educación Ambiental con enfoque en la profesionalización del hacer educativo ambiental en parques por parte de la Universidad de Guadalajara.

Changing the narrative through park management

Thanks to the design and its implementation, it is possible to change the urban image. Still, even more importantly, a park's proper management can change the narrative and meaning of a space. An abandoned park with a low-security perception can become a family destination and women gathering place. The indicators measured in Parque Cuscatlán show that we can recover areas that we thought were lost. The good news is that this exercise can be replicated, and with the case of Parque Cuscatlán and the multiple measurements that have been made in this space, very positive results can be anticipated. Public-private partnerships can achieve this goal if they are adequately supported with the help of legal instruments such as agreements and other tools such as effective communication and the search for consensus. It is crucial to change the paradigm that projects end when the construction work is finished and move on to a new model in which taking care of what is built is equally valuable. This implies including the community and the users fostering desirable behaviors to maintain the spaces. It is also vital to have a robust activation plan and the necessary financing for its implementation.

High-quality, Innovative, Resilient, Inclusive - Not buzz words but the outcome for open space

Describing our open spaces as High-quality, Innovative, Resilient and Inclusive should be the standard. COVID-19 has made us appreciate the role of public open spaces in supporting our health and wellbeing, sense of community, and civic lives more than ever. Areas with poor access to public open space and waterways suffered during COVID-19 lockdowns, and the inequitable impacts on Western Sydney were widely observed. Despite widespread recognition of the value of public open space to the people of NSW, public open space is all too often treated as a “nice to have”. But not everyone has access to public open space, and the quality of the public open space we do have varies across the state. Future public open space must be better planned and coordinated by the many Government agencies and local councils involved in land management, to meet the needs of communities as the NSW population grows by almost 3 million people over next 50 years. In this session you will learn about what the NSW Government Open Space program is doing to ensure that High-quality, Innovative, Resilient, Inclusive are not buzz words, they are the intention, the scope and the outcome being achieved.

But not everyone has access to public open space, and the quality of the public open space we do have varies across the state. Future public open space must be better planned and coordinated by the many Government agencies and local councils involved in land management, to meet the needs of communities as the NSW population grows by almost 3 million people over next 50 years. In this session you will learn about what the NSW Government Open Space program is doing to ensure that High-quality, Innovative, Resilient, Inclusive are not buzz words, they are the intention, the scope and the outcome being achieved.

“Thrills, chills and child driven play designs: 10 tips for retention with thrilling, challenging playgrounds”

What does it take to make especially older children physically activity outdoors? The debate on risk averseness in public playgrounds too often ignores the existing research in child preferences for outdoor physical activity, even if it is quite unanimous across cultures and nationalities: Children want thrills and challenges in playgrounds, and not least: they benefit from thrills and challenges both physically and social-emotionally. This science based presentation will elaborate on 10 planning tips to create thrill and challenge in playgrounds.

Paris « Tree Strategy » for planting 170 000 trees by 2026

Trees are Paris’ best ally in the face of climate change. Trees contribute to the fight against global warming, to cooling the air and reducing heat islands, to improving rainwater management, to maintaining a diversity of fauna and flora, to improving air quality and to the psychological and physiological health of the inhabitants. The Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, wanted to put greening at the heart of her mandate, with the objective of massively increasing the place of nature in the city. By increasing the number of natural spaces and planting wherever possible, we will move from a city with gardens to a true "garden city", a more beautiful city, but also a city that is cooler and more resilient to global warming. A real paradigm shift that places nature at the heart of urban planning. This is why the City of Paris has committed to planting 170,000 trees during the term of office and to its own “Tree Strategy” to promote 23 environmental actions adopted at the Paris Council in October 2021, range from new green spaces and landscape projects, public education and technical recommendations to landowners regarding tree care, to scientific studies on tree’s behaviour in urban areas.

5 clues from Environmental Psychology that designers of recreational public spaces should know

The growing population living in cities demands a paradigm shift in the design process of public spaces to improve the quality of urban life. While the main object of study of Environmental Psychology is the human-ambience interrelationship, this proposal aims to present 5 key concepts that demonstrate this interaction. The contributions are organized in two sections. The first is related to symbolic concepts which include: (i) appropriation; (ii) place identity; and (iii) place attachment. The second, focuses on practical theories to be applied in the design processes: (iv) perception; and (v) restorative capacity. The main goal is to articulate these assumptions with the architectural realm to guide design logics for the benefit of city dwellers.

Buenos Aires: Public Space Design Manual with a Gender and Diversity Perspective

To develop transformative public policies it is not enough to highlight inequalities and their consequent problems, you have to assume uncomfortable places and modify traditional courses of action. The city and its public space have a fundamental role in the composition of the social structure and in the relationships that occur among its inhabitants. In this sense, the design of the public space has the responsibility of generating greater guarantees regarding the universal right to transit, inhabit and enjoy the city. This Manual, published by the Government of the City of Buenos Aires in March 2022, exposes conceptual notions and hard data regarding the inequality prevailing in society and its empirical translation into the urban experience, with the intention of describing and measuring this problem. It then proposes tools for research and participation, to incorporate the perspective of people. Finally, it establishes design guidelines to consider when thinking and planning the space. It culminates with three case studies from the city of Buenos Aires. This publication seeks to be a contribution to the challenge of mitigating the inequalities prevailing in society, with their translation into differential experiences, and promoting an equitable urban experience.

White Elephant: New public space. Consensus, participation and urban transformation.

The Elefante Blanco Public Park is located in the southern area of the City of Buenos Aires, in the center of Barrio 15 (called the Hidden City), a neighborhood that has been neglected and built by its inhabitants. The park, as well as a new government headquarters, are located where a building from the 1930s used to stand, abandoned since the 1950s. The “White Elephant”, as it was known, was destined to be the largest tuberculosis hospital in Latin America, but the political and historical vicissitudes did not allow its completion. Instead, a new neighborhood was gradually formed around it while sheltering families and organizations within it. From 2016, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires determined that the building, structurally irrecoverable, was demolished. Thus, the design and execution of an unprecedented work in the city was given way, which incorporated 12,000 m² of public green space, where the needs of the affected population were prioritized, generating consensus and promoting a new physical and symbolic appropriation of the built environment.

innovation, knowledge and talent contributing to the economic and environmental development of the City.

The Plaza Houssay, located between the faculties of Economics, Medicine, Pharmacy and Dentistry of the University of Buenos Aires, is a pass-through spot for more than 170,000 students. Despite the significant daily flow of people, the gastronomic and cultural offer of the environment was very low and security is something that neighbors constantly demanded. The proposal we sought then was to enhance the environment, promoting the concept of "Urban Campus" as a magnet and pole of innovation, knowledge and talent, giving a new use to the parking located in the basements of the square - then underutilized - in a friendly space, in which both students and neighbors, find a new space of enjoyment and connectivity. The Urban Campus was designed to contribute to the sustainable development of the area, considering in the same project the social, economic, cultural and urban-environmental aspects.

Collaborative by Design: Parks Canada’s New Network of National Urban Parks

A collaborative and partnership based model is a successful approach for a federally-led urban park program. Join Parks Canada and partners to learn more about the new National Urban Parks Program, which represents the next evolution for Parks Canada whose history over 110 years has provided Canadians a system of national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas. Building on the success of the Rouge National Urban Park, Parks Canada has committed to collaborate with municipalities, provinces, Indigenous partners, conservation organizations and park advocacy groups, among others, to identify opportunities for creating or expanding national urban parks in urban and near-urban settings. This new network of national urban parks will also include areas managed under a range of flexible governance models, including federally administered places, 3rd party administered places, and partnership models. Our network is working together to create new national urban parks that will help protect biodiversity, support climate resilience, connect people to nature, improve mental health and wellness, promote cultural heritage, and increase social inclusion. They will also provide opportunities to support reconciliation with Indigenous populations and build collaborative relationships with Indigenous partners. This interactive session will offer a hybrid presentation and workshop format, to engage and benefit all participants.

Three Rivers, One Maintenance Strategy: Funding Routine Care for Pittsburgh's Riverfronts

Pittsburgh is famous for making steel, for its bridges, and for the rivers they cross, two of which converge into a third at the city's most famous public space. But only a portion of Pittsburgh's riverfronts are publicly owned. Though most of the system is publicly accessible, a mosaic of ownership and investment makes for inconsistent maintenance and a disjointed riverfront experience. In order to address this issue, local nonprofit Riverlife is working to develop a one-of-a-kind funding structure and maintenance strategy to bring added value to the existing system and ensure a world-class experience for all along Pittsburgh's three rivers. Participants in this session will have a chance to dig into the details of this evolving plan. Riverlife's Director of Planning Projects will outline the successes, and the hurdles, that come with a shared maintenance plan for 49 unique property owners across 180 parcels. This innovative approach to public and private land management offers unique opportunities for equitable access and investment across diverse geographies and challenging political landscapes.

Designing playgrounds for young children and their families

Our youngest children (birth to 5 years) are the most frequent users of public playground spaces. Therefore, it is essential that public playgrounds be designed for the unique developmental needs of the youngest children. Moreover, young children are always accompanied by their families when they visit public playgrounds. This means that these spaces must also be exciting, engaging, and comfortable for the whole family. In this session we will discuss research on early childhood development and from the KOMPAN play institute with the youngest children on what works best in playground design. We will also demonstrate which features of public playgrounds are most appealing to families with young children and present planning tips and case studies of playgrounds that are attractive for the youngest playground users.

Urban Park revisited

In our collective imagination an urban park is a public place of free access and usually run by local authorities. Its main objective is recreation although there are additional environmental, social, and economic benefits. Under the current urban context of overpopulation, pollution, climate change and mainly prevailing water scarcity, urban parks face great challenges for their maintenance. Treated wastewater reuse constitutes an attractive tool to relieve water stress at cities. The use of treated wastewater to irrigate urban parks and green spaces is successfully practiced around the world. In Mexico, the utilization of treated wastewater started in 1970s, nowadays 15 % of treated water is destined to irrigate green areas. This document presents a demonstrative project of an urban park built around a decentralized wastewater treatment plant of 3 l/sec, Ecoparque located in a typical slope at the desert city of Tijuana in northern Mexico. It has been running for nearly 30 years, has 2.5 km irrigation lines aiming to cover 10-acre surface, and by now 30% treated water is reused. In the site environmental education, urban agriculture, native plants propagation, compost production and renewable energy activities take place; in doing so, urban resilience, environmental awareness and reduction of food poverty are also addressed.

PLANNING IN EXTREME CLIMATES: ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN CITY DESIGN

Multiple factors condition how people move around and use the city. Climate is one of them, and today it has taken on a priority role due to the environmental alterations of climate change. City planners and decision makers must recognize the urgency of designing for the new climate conditions, with a vision of resilience, reduced impacts and attention to social dynamics. The session explores the experience of three Mexican cities in different regions: Torreon, a desert city in the north, and its mobility plan with a focus on sustainability; Merida, a tropical city in the southeast, and its green infrastructure regulations aimed at protecting native flora and aquifers; and Los Cabos, a coastal city in the northwest, and the urban design of a social housing development, with a focus on flood risk mitigation and water stress.

5 clues from Environmental Psychology that designers of recreational public spaces should know

The growing population living in cities demands a paradigm shift in the design process of public spaces to improve the quality of urban life. While the main object of study of Environmental Psychology is the human-ambience interrelationship, this proposal aims to present 5 key concepts that demonstrate this interaction. The contributions are organized in two sections. The first is related to symbolic concepts which include: (i) appropriation; (ii) place identity; and (iii) place attachment. The second, focuses on practical theories to be applied in the design processes: (iv) perception; and (v) restorative capacity. The main goal is to articulate these assumptions with the architectural realm to guide design logics for the benefit of city dwellers

Urban nature parks for water, climate and biodiversity sensitive metropolitan areas

n recent years, Chile has been experiencing important changes in the use and destination of its urban parks. Cities are transforming and growing, and in the middle of them, there are natural remnants of ecological and social importance. In parallel, two legislative reforms allow the emergence of new parks with natural value around urban wetlands, which have a metropolitan scale scope and use. The purpose of this session is to discuss the main characteristics, the principal elements and the complexities to be addressed in different management and financing models that are required in urban natural parks that are configured around wetlands and natural remnants. Public-private cooperation is required, but also the active participation of civil society, as well as innovative financing mechanisms to ensure the sustainability of the parks over time. All this in a country with profound geographic differences, where on the one hand, the parks must deal with a permanent drought. While on the other extreme, floods will be recurrent. Chile is preparing to have cities and metropolitan areas sensitive to water, climate and biodiversity.

Las Riberas - A Sustainable Sites Within A Community

Wellness, nature, sustainability and community were the inspiration to create spaces that combine harmony to offer a better quality of life. Concerned about the environment, nature and our future, Las Riberas developed an urban space focused on sustainability, service, coexistence and technology, resulting in a unique community, vibrant and surrounded by life, ideal for living in peace, family and responsibly. Las Riberas is a residential community located in Hermosillo Sonora, this space was created to offer an environment that satisfies all recreational, sports and social needs. Nature and sustainability are considered and prioritized for the development of this urban space. This residential sought to pursue SITES™ (Sustainable Sites Initiative) certification, which is a certification based on the understanding that land is a crucial component of the built environment and can be planned, designed, built and maintained to avoid, mitigate and even reverse negative effects. Sustainable landscapes create ecologically resilient communities, improving their ability to withstand and recover from floods, droughts, wildfires and other disasters. This certification benefits the environment, landowners, communities, and local and regional economies. Las Riberas decided to certify under SITES all open areas within the first construction phase of the development. The main characteristic of Las Riberas is the importance of preserving the endemic nature of the area, creating spaces where people can hang out, exercise, and connect socially in the open air.

Amplifying the value of large urban parks and nature connection in Canada

Large urban parks hold space for nature in our cities. They help people to build meaningful connections to nature and to each other, and they give cities a big head start when it comes to mitigating impacts of climate change. Research suggests that spending time in large urban parks, including participating in stewardship programs or other nature-based activities, contributes to nature connectedness. A strong connection to nature has positive impacts on mental health, well-being, and pro-environmental behaviour – creating a positive feedback loop for further involvement in broader and park-focused environmental stewardship. Through the Cornerstone Parks program, Park People connects and supports park-based NGOs who share a vision of ensuring that nature is within reach for every urban Canadian. Over the next three years, we intend to grow the network through new partnerships across Canada to further support knowledge exchange and shared best practices, in order to increase access to the benefits of urban parks, nature connection and stewardship programs in equity-deserving communities. Supported by research on nature connection from the 2022 Canadian City Parks report, this session will illustrate the Cornerstone Parks program as an innovative model for improving our appreciation of these spaces and leveraging further investment in them.

Microparks project in Fortaleza-CE, Brazil: Urbanism and Environment towards sustainable urban development

The session aims to present the Micro Parks Project, which uses concepts of nature based solutions to develop urbanized green areas in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil. It provides safe spaces for children to play, learn, interact with caregivers and with each other, and develop their knowledge of the world surrounding them. The presence of that type of space in low-income neighborhoods, with families who often don't count on reliable spaces to be with their children, can help caregivers fulfill their children's needs. In that sense, the micro parks project helps underprivileged children to have a better cognitive growth while exercising their creativity exploring different textures and ways to use the space for play. It it als a tool to teach early childhood about climate change issues when comparing a natural space such as that with other surroundings that children who live in cities are used to seeing. It also provides better air quality for the young while improving the neighborhood capacity to deal with floods. Positive change in the population's perception of the area is one of the benefits, along with the use of the city's pruning wood, normally sent to the sanitary landfill.

Co-Designing public spaces: experiences from Mérida, Yucatán

Participatory design began in the 70s, aiming to include stakeholders in design processes to ensure better projects. Since then, discourse and concepts of participatory design have changed to include notions of identity, ownership, co-design, social innovation, democracy and empowerment. Asambleas Ciudadanas has worked in participatory processes since 2011 with communities across Mexico. Our ethos is based on the idea that transforming the city is not only a technical task but rather a political one. Recently we developed a process to co-design public spaces in the city along with authorities of Merida municipality. The co-design process has three different phases: assessment, co-design and reviewing the final project, and within a year of construction, the spaces were completed. This participatory process has been implemented in 20 public spaces and became a flagship programme for its Major. Our proposal will explore how co-design can challenge institutional processes to make them more democratic, and at the same time how communities demonstrate through a variety of tools such as mapping and surveys their invaluable knowledge in the use of their spaces. The latest, whilst crucial to the project itself, also shows the micropolitical action of people in transforming public spaces. We will also share the main findings of the processes developed like how relevant is gender perspective to have inclusive and safer spaces for all.

Building local networks through participatory processes: the case of Ciudad Juárez

Within the public discourse around participatory design and its relation to people’s re-appropriation of public space, the work carried out by Fundación Hogares demonstrates that participatory processes in the frame of community-led projects foster capacity building, social capital, and neighbourhood cohesion. This project was recently developed in a partnership between Fundación Hogares and Infonavit, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, and was implemented within the context of three (social housing) neighbourhoods located in the outskirts of the city. Aiming to reduce the widespread home abandonment across Mexico, through the implementation of socio-spatial regeneration projects, our session presents the case of “Polígono 5”. It shines a light on the relevance of working together with local stakeholders and involving them in different phases of the project so that they can follow up the actions carried out by the community and assure its long-term maintenance. Results indicate a strong relationship between community-led projects and increased levels of sense of belonging and participatory behaviour, as well as built trust in local authorities. On the other hand, the evaluation shows reduced perception of abandonment and insecurity indicators. Ultimately, these results prove participatory processes strengthen social cohesion and urban vitality within social housing territories.

Implementing city-wide participatory strategies to reclaim public spaces in the context of Covid-19

Cities across Mexico face major challenges regarding urban development, such as socio-spatial inequality, resource management, as well as economic development. This scenario represents an opportunity for urban projects to reduce inequalities by approaching them from an inclusive and participatory perspective. This session focuses on the “Parque de la Equidad” project, which is a 16 km long —89 has— linear public space. The objective of the project was to implement a participatory strategy that would inform the design of a new public space that would work as a catalyst for social cohesion for rather socio-economically diverse districts of the city of Cancun. The project was developed in partnership with UN-Habitat, Fundación Hogares y Asambleas Ciudadanas. The project scale and the Covid-19 pandemic were two challenges to cope with, as it was developed from May to December 2020, before vaccines were available to the population. We needed to ensure both large participation numbers and applying health measures to avoid Covid spread. For this reason, planning and institutional support were key to assure the successful implementation of the participatory process. In this context, a flexible and dynamic strategy was required, so that it could be adapted to circumstances that were specific to each district in order to build the programme for the “Parque de la Equidad” master plan.

Public Involvement in Maintaining Parks of Delhi: Forging Partnerships with Local Communities

The government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) has more than 18000 parks spread over 8000 hectares in various locations throughout Delhi, which are managed by various agencies like MCD, DDA, PWD, etc. Addressing this multiplicity of agencies, the Delhi Parks and Gardens Society (DPGS) was formed to coordinate the management of parks and gardens. One of the major schemes of DPGS involves providing financial assistance to Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) or Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) for ensuring maintenance and upkeep of neighborhood parks and gardens. The DPGS scheme leads to increased public participation in management of green spaces whilst providing them with funds for spending as per local knowledge of needs. The funds can be utilized for increasing greenery, engaging gardeners, and spending on tools and equipment. The expenditure in the scheme has seen a steady growth from 19 million in 2016-17 to 85 million in 2021-22 and is a major chunk of expenditure within the DPGS with plans to target maximum unmaintained parks in the current year. To aid this process of identifying unmaintained parks a census of all parks is underway revealing that as much as 55% of total parks are unmaintained. In addition to this, urban green spaces are unequally distributed between different settlement typologies creating a new set of challenges for improving access to green spaces for all.

participatory development of an urban park: the social transformation of a neighborhood from public spaces

The paper presents the case of implementing the transformation of a popular housing neighborhood from the 1980s into a park neighborhood in the city of Passo Fundo, Brazil. The demand came to the government from the community. The neighborhood had green areas, but without structure, in addition to having a vast area owned by the State, which was at risk of irregular occupation due to abandonment. In this case, we will present the entire process, from the concession of the area to the municipality, development of the participatory project and execution together with the community. In this project, we sought to incorporate new equipment into the park, such as a school and a health unit, in addition to creating a strategy for each part of the neighborhood to be served by the park within a radius of 300m.

High-quality, Innovative, Resilient, Inclusive - Not buzz words but the outcome for open space

COVID-19 has made us appreciate the role of public open spaces in supporting our health and wellbeing, sense of community, and civic lives more than ever.

Despite widespread recognition of the value of public open space to the people of NSW, public open space is all too often treated as a “nice to have”. But not everyone has access to public open space, and the quality of the public open space we do have varies across the state. Future public open space must be better planned and coordinated by the many Government agencies and local councils involved in land management, to meet the needs of communities as the NSW population grows by almost 3 million people over next 50 years.

Establishing Green Adelaide and becoming a National Park City

Green Adelaide was established in 2020 as one of the biggest changes in the South Australian Government's reform of natural resources management across the state. With a direction to focus on the management of the urban landscape, hear about Green Adelaide's achievements over the past two years in response to challenges such as a changing climate, population growth and development, and the threats of habitat loss and invasive species. This has seen a focus on urban greening, rewilding, and community engagement to increase connection to nature, in partnership with local councils, non-government organisations and others. Green Adelaide has also joined an ambitious international movement to improve the health and liveability of cities which has seen Adelaide become the second National Park City in the world after London. This brings additional opportunities to focus on relationships between people and nature, acknowledge and address the challenges we face, and assist other cities in their similar journeys. Green Adelaide will share the challenges and opportunities arising from this historic achievement.

BiodivScore

In Paris, 95% of projects are not subject to environmental assessment, so that the consideration of biodiversity in projects is not assessed, nor is the impact that these projects have on living organisms. In accordance with Action 2 of its Biodiversity Plan, the City of Paris aims to correct this pitfall by integrating biodiversity into all stages of construction, development and rehabilitation projects. A tool for evaluating practices Inspired by the avoid-reduce-compensate sequence, the BiodivScore is a tool to assess the biodiversity performance of projects and to help them move towards the least impact in terms of biodiversity. This tool therefore encourages the avoidance of impacts on biodiversity, or, failing that, their reduction and, as a last resort, the compensation of residual impacts. Four assessment axes are developed to cover the entire timeframe of the project: o Evaluation of the ecological potential to be calculated before and after in order to compare the trend between the initial and projected situations; o Evaluation of the programming and construction choices to assess the consideration given to biodiversity by the project owner and the contractor; o Assessment of the avoidance and reduction of the impacts of the works during the construction phase; o Assessment of the planned management.

"Sparrow Neighborhood"

On a national scale, common biodiversity is threatened, while species that have been the object of special protection are less affected. The evidence is clear: targeted protection policies can work. To face the disappearance of the Parisian sparrows (-73% since years 2000), the City of Paris inaugurates a tailor-made system: "Quartiers Moineaux": "Sparrow Neighborhood". Developed in partnership with the Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux (LPO), the "Sparrow Neighborhood" participative scheme aims to mobilize residents, shopkeepers and public establishments in a given neighborhood to strengthen local sparrow colonies. In practice, this takes the form of : Provision of sparrow nesting boxes with installation advice and distribution of seeds whose sowing will bring vegetation that is a source of food, Adapted maintenance of the green spaces of the sector concerned, such as the planting of shrubs and flowering plants / seeds useful to sparrows. 3 types of classical actions to please sparrows: Allow some bushes to grow taller, Planting plants with seeds for food, Leave areas as 'natural grassland'. Long-term animation of a community of ambassadors who will be able to participate in a participatory science protocol developed by the LPO to provide information on the actual occupation of the nesting boxes and the City will offer information throughout the year on the subject to better understand and better protect.

Rehabilitacion del Parque Miguel Hidalgo, Cuerpo Oriente

Los parques urbanos son considerados espacios multifuncionales que cumplen con distintos objetivos dentro de las ciudades: recreativos, estéticos, ambientales y hasta educativos, pero que mantienen como elemento central a sus usuarios. Es el parque el pulmón de la ciudad, gracias a sus áreas verdes, pero es también, y sobre todo, el lugar donde confluimos todos, donde se generan importantes dinámicas de convivencia social y de recreación compartida. El Parque Miguel Hidalgo, en León, Guanajuato, México, se había visto cada vez más abandonado, dadas sus características estructurales poco atractivas, de manera que nuestro trabajo de recuperación consistió en restaurar su vocación primaria al servicio de las personas. La obra incluyó áreas de recreación activa y pasiva, espacios donde se pueda pasar tiempo, ya sea sentado o caminando, una estrategia de intervención en el área de paisajismo, y un espacio para espectáculos al aire libre. El objetivo es reconvertirlo en un punto de reunión. Palabras clave: rescate de un espacio social; planeación urbana; parques; lugares públicos; convivencia social; arquitectura del paisaje.

The first Land Management Strategy for planning and managing Victoria’s park estate.

The Land Management Strategy sets the long-term directions and priorities for the protection, management and use of the terrestrial, coastal and marine parks and reserves managed by Parks Victoria, over 4 million hectares covering 18% of the state of Victoria. It underpins planning and management for parks from highly protected natural areas to urban parks, for partners, stakeholders and community.  This session will explore how the Land Management Strategy applies consistent, integrated principles, outcomes and reporting indicators at the state-wide park estate and individual park scales. We will use examples of visitor experience planning for urban parks that respond to the complex social, cultural and environmental challenges and pressures our parks face. As metropolitan Melbourne and regional centres grow, more people are seeking the open space and recreational opportunities that urban parks provide. The Land Management Strategy principles include that all parks will be managed according to their specified purpose and function, to protect environmental, cultural and social values. The visitor experience will be guided by protection of natural and cultural values. The community will be encouraged to engage with, and develop, social and cultural connections and understand, be active in, and appreciate parks. The session will provide details of how the recreation activities, events, tourism, education and interpretation and volunteering programs utilise the Land Management Strategy for direction and implementation reporting.

Hacia la construcción esencial del territorio sustentable en Colima, México

Las áreas urbanas contemporáneas del occidente de México y América Latina se expanden dispersamente, impactando negativamente en la ocupación de suelo con vocación agropecuario. Esa difusión territorial favorece el debilitamiento de las relaciones sociales, pérdida de confianza vecinal e inseguridad patrimonial. La construcción y mantenimiento territorial de urbanizaciones, servicios urbanos y edificaciones de manera atomizada, lacera el paisaje urbano, precipita el costo de operarlos, dejando un déficit financiero para potenciar actividades de prioridad social, económico y ambiental. Lo ocurrido es producto del antivalor del crecimiento económico consumista individualizado, hedonista y fugaz sin inspiración en el desarrollo endógeno solidario y participativo, ni proclive a la felicidad genuina. Esto tiene repercusión degradante en muchos ámbitos, incluyendo el urbano, arquitectónico y componentes de construcción. Es urgente promover en la academia la particiación genuina y la integración social, la economía endógena, la protección de los ecosistemas regionales, integrados a procesos resilientes, innovadores y de alta calidad. El caso del territorio colimense mexicano, como muchos en América Latina, contribuyen con gases de efecto invernadero. Esto tiene su origen principal en la pérdida de valores de fraternidad y subsidiariedad, la generación eléctrica mediante el combustóleo, el uso cotidiano de productos de rápido desecho, las emisiones de motores de combustión de vehículos de uso individualizado, el modelo dominante de expansión urbana con exigua vegetación y el exceso de excretas de ganado rumiante. En esta disertación se hacen propuestas de solución resolutiva a los problemas mencionados.

A prescription worth filling…naturally!

Social prescribing is becoming increasingly of interest in supporting nature based health and wellbeing outcomes for our communities. With people discovering how important nature has been during the pandemic it is a perfect time for these conversations. Parks Victoria supports social prescribing and is successfully implementing it across the park network, and no more successfully than in the regional city of Ballarat in Victoria, Austraila. Come on a community’s journey to see the great health and wellbeing outcomes that can be achieved through co-design, engaging across the community health sector, social prescribing, some passionate staff and great plans! When the Friends of Canadian Corridor successfully campaigned and petitioned government to protect land, destined for housing development, as a park, they knew it was for something special. What is now Woowookarung Regional Park, the Wadawurrung First Nation Peoples’ name for ‘place of plenty’, is an important expression of community participation, organisation and strength. One of the first projects at Woowookarung to develop a trail became a compassionate journey to not just build a trail, but to nurture life changing connections while being in nature. It has become the site of Australia’s first Dementia friendly forest and sensory trail and Parks Victoria’s first park to support ‘Green Scripts’.

Presentación del libro "El Parque Urbano: entre Naturaleza y Democracia"

El parque urbano cobija una inmensa variedad de significados que provienen, por un lado, de la longeva y cambiante idea de naturaleza, albergada en las nociones de paraíso, campo en la ciudad y paisaje identitario; y, por el otro, de la más moderna idea de democracia, albergada en la noción de proveer salud, belleza, cultura y espacio recreativo, a un entorno urbano en plena transformación de ciudad barroca a ciudad decimonónica industrializada, símbolo de progreso y civilización. Entre opiniones de escritores, profesionales del diseño, administradores de parques y usuarios, se concretan 32 lugares comunes de significado actual, que promueven o inhiben el uso y el éxito de los parques. El parque urbano es un detonador de bondades inimaginables y un espacio de la ciudad que permite crear comunidad, pero cuya fragilidad implica un gran cuidado por parte de los actores involucrados en su ubicación, diseño, construcción, mantenimiento, administración y uso. Más allá de ser un objeto físico-espacial, el parque urbano es un sujeto en el acontecer de la vida de individuos, familias y localidades, que permite la inclusión social, la resiliencia ambiental y la posibilidad de crear experiencias que construyen una historia cultural reveladora y una memoria colectiva perdurable.

Política Nacional de Parques Urbanos, más y mejores parques para Chile

En Chile, nuestras ciudades se enfrentan a una serie de desafíos como consecuencia del aumento de la población urbana y de la segregación socio-espacial que dicho aumento ha llevado asociado. Problemas como la contaminación ambiental, los efectos del cambio climático y la vulnerabilidad ante el riesgo de desastres, constituyen una amenaza para la salud y calidad de vida de sus habitantes. El crecimiento urbano y la densificación generan una creciente demanda por más y mejores parques urbanos, al tiempo que los suelos disponibles para materializarlos, son cada vez más escasos. Al desafío de la disponibilidad de suelo, se suma el de la equidad en la distribución de los parques y áreas verdes existentes. Dotar a Chile de una Política Nacional de Parques Urbanos (PNPU) representa una oportunidad única para proteger y fortalecer el rol vital que cumplen los parques urbanos en la sustentabilidad y la resiliencia de nuestras ciudades, en el bienestar y la calidad de vida de sus habitantes, y en el desarrollo futuro del país. La PNPU es el resultado de un arduo trabajo multisectorial liderado por el Ministerio de Vivienda y Urbanismo (MINVU) con distintos organismos públicos, del sector privado, la academia y la sociedad civil. Además, se desarrolló con un amplio despliegue territorial en las 16 regiones administrativas del país y con procesos de participación ciudadana.

Partnering to protect 'at risk' species in the peri urban environment

This initiative describes a guiding and participative role that Parks Victoria plays in securing the sustainable future for a wide range of species of flora and fauna in a specialised floodplain and riparian forest environment in the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Area some 50 kilometres east of Melbourne, Australia. This ‘urban/peri-urban’ conservation area of 660 hectares is surrounded by residential and rural properties and links into a broader, but fragmented, landscape of natural areas. Parks Victoria’s role has been pivotal in a highly acclaimed programme that has brought one of Australia’s most critically endangered birds, the helmeted honeyeater, back from the brink of extinction only a decade ago. The initiative demonstrates the importance of having a shared vision/objective, working in collaboration with partners across various land tenures, and the strength and effectiveness of a sophisticated, comprehensive, integrated and coordinated approach. This approach integrates functions such as: • partnerships with key volunteer groups, research institutions, local government, water authorities, Zoos Victoria and government departments to achieve environmental outcomes on public and private land; • coordinated weed management and pest animal control; • habitat restoration, where Parks Victoria has a major partnership role with other government agencies and civil society environmental groups such as the Friends of the helmeted honeyeater; and • floodplain hydrology restoration, where Parks Victoria plays a facilitative and supportive role to the actions and activities of the major project deliverers. The critical roles of advocacy, landowner and community engagement, school and citizen science programs, and building social capital are led by the highly regarded and very active environmental group, the Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater.

Electro Eco tarpunchik (Sowing): Technological proposal for agriculture automated urban that conquers the heights

Annually, food prices have risen an average of 2.6% for the last 20 years. The food shortage of food is related to political problems, which leads to violence as an end product. According to the FAO, in 2008 saw record rises in food prices and ended in fights and brawls in 48 countries. This is because a system doomed to failure continues in times of climate change. Faced with this, vertical farming appears as an alternative solution, which consists of superimposed layers and is performed on ascending structures such as buildings and platforms. There, the environmental variables are controlled for the crops. Additionally, and framing the Peruvian reality, there are methods that lower investment costs for vertical farming such as Electro eco sowing, automated urban farming. This project is an agricultural system that optimizes the use of water since it allows only the amount of water necessary for each food product on its substrate aided by electronic circuits. The excess water will be recirculated to return to the system (automation). It also uses solid waste as inputs. It is small in size, easy to to install, to operate anywhere and gives a friendly and reassuring face to the buildings of an increasingly exhausting and stressful. Human supervision will only be done on rare occasions and by the creator of the draft. Between 70% and 90% water saving was obtained (the variation depends on the species) with food plants and fast growth. The maximum expense of $120 to implement everything. It is concluded that this project is eco-efficient, low cost, guaranteeing food security and it would be an income extra for those who stay in their home.

Reimagining Toronto Parks & Trails Wayfinding

This session will discuss the development, design, pilot implementation, and evaluation of a strategy to enhance and unify wayfinding across the city’s 1,600+ parklands and 600 km of trails. The work was developed over two phases. The strategy forms part of Toronto’s post COVID-19 response to increase access to public and private greenspace, providing residents with accessible and reliable access to outdoor and help make the city’s urban wilderness more inclusive. Phase One, established system framework: identifying gaps and challenges through analysis and ongoing engagement with stakeholders and the general public, setting wayfinding principles, informing content needs, establishing general style and design guidelines. Phase Two, included planning, design and implementation of a wayfinding pilot installed along the Lower Don Valley Trail and in Riverdale Park. Post pilot-implementation user surveys informed value engineering and product refinements to establish a system that is durable, flexible and viable in the long term. A comprehensive set of guidelines (five volumes) describe system strategy, product placement, construction details and graphic specification, as well as a governance structure to deliver a decades-long implementation.

The paths of nature / Les chemins de la nature

Nature's paths are a documentary resource on the ecological network of Paris. Initiated in 2017 and updated regularly, les chemins de la nature offers a range of tools to understand and improve the ecological network of Paris. The document is organized as follows: Atlas of the green and blue webs of Paris: this is to illustrate the geography of Parisian biodiversity through maps that draw the biodiversity reservoirs and ecological corridors that connect them. The priority habitat sheets present the fifteen habitats with high ecological value. The disappearance of habitats is the first cause of biodiversity erosion recognized worldwide and proven in Paris. The regional flora is composed of the regional flora catalog organized by strata and presents the six protected species in Paris. Invasive alien species (IAS): IAS represent the third greatest threat to biodiversity worldwide. This section focuses on their description and provides management guidelines. The fauna target species sheets present in detail the ecology of thirty-eight species or groups of species qualified as target species. Finally, the additional resources section includes several useful documents for biodiversity management, such as: the intervention calendar, participatory science protocols, artificial lodges, etc.

Selección de especies arbóreas para espacios públicos

Históricamente hemos realizado proyectos para la creación de espacios públicos arbolados considerando la utilización de especies “de moda”, “bonitas”, “grandes”, “baratas”, para salir del paso. Sin embargo no tomamos en cuenta las necesidades básicas de supervivencia de las plantas, las dimensiones que alcanzaran, el equipamiento urbano, etc. La planeación y el uso de técnicas para la selección de especies arbóreas apropiadas, es esencial para diseñar, construir y mejorar un espacio público, esto considerando los diversos factores que influyen en el buen desarrollo de las especies seleccionadas para nuestro proyecto, como son: el clima, suelo, disponibilidad de agua equipamiento urbano, usos y más.

Gamification of playground design: An exercise of codesign using collaborative board games

Since the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989, the importance of the participation of children and adolescents in the city began to be highlighted, promoting the recognition of children as subjects with rights and an opinion, freedom of expression and their own voice. As Ian Smith says "Children are part of our cities. If our cities aren't designed for children, then they're not meant for citizens. If they're not meant for citizens, they're not cities." Therefore, we are challenged to find ways to involve children in the process of designing urban playgrounds. How can we do that? What if we turn the design process into a game itself to do it? What if we merge game elements with playgrounds design? This workshop aims to explore the use of collaborative board games as a design tool in which urban design experts and non-experts can participate. Be part of an open playground co-design process using game mechanics.

Funding public policies with private sources – experiences from Brazilian parks

In a moment of budgetary restrictions, is not uncommon for governments to freeze or cut resources for recreation and public spaces maintenance. As a fundamental source of welfare and provider of environmental services, urban parks need to find new sources for funding. This scenario imposes a challenge for policy makers: how to continuously delivery effective public services in a context when budget is scarce? Searching for financially sustainable policies, many governments across Brazil are designing arrangements with the private sector for partnerships intended to support public management of free entrance public parks. These policies require from the private partner to run operational services and managing facilities, commercial or not, as well as to implement policies designed by public officers. While a great opportunity to facilitate investments that hardly would be made exclusively with public resources, there are also challenges to properly manage private interests and assure even more diverse and vibrant parks. This scenario that is intended to be shared. From the theoretical framework behind these partnerships with cases from cities such as São Paulo, Porto Alegre and Recife, to the outcomes and required improvements of this policy.

Street-Park Networks for the Healthy City

Streets cover around 80% of the total public space in cities. How can we enhance the function of such valuable space? What if they achieve more than just connecting us between our destinations? The city of San Pedro Garza García is going through one of its most important transformations in its history. Following three historical urbanization events, and the deep renovation of 5 large parks, there is a new layer being unfolded across three districts that promise a city with an unprecedented network of urban parks. Cities are the product of the constant adaptation of the natural environment and human survival depends on the correct interconnections between air, earth, water, life and culture. The evolution of cities has a straight connection between the way humans transport themselves to access everyday needs and the shape of the paths that connect and provide a safe and comfortable space to move we now call streets. At IMPLANG, we’re working on the transformation of three districts within San Pedro, and this talk will take us through the history of the urbanization of the municipality, the projects in place to improve such places, and the sustainability and health benefits such intervention aims to achieve.

Resilient Parks and Communities

This session aims to inspire: it will show how public parks can contribute to more resilient and healthy neighborhoods and communities. We will present the "Our Resilient Neighborhood" initiative, which implements measures to rehabilitate the public park “Parque Hundido Pedro Sánchez” in the city of San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur. The initiative works closely with the community in order to adjust the park to their needs. At the same time, the initiative implements nature-based solutions and educational measures that can give answers to the environmental challenges in San José del Cabo. We will take participants on a virtual walk in the park and show simple strategies to create “urban oasis” and spaces of cohabitation, recreation and education, which can be replicated in urban parks, schools and homes. The session will be conducted in a hybrid way: videos of the initiative will be shown and a panel will be organized to share lessons learned and recommendations for carrying out these initiatives.

BiodivScore

In Paris, 95% of projects are not subject to environmental assessment, so that the consideration of biodiversity in projects is not assessed, nor is the impact that these projects have on living organisms. In accordance with Action 2 of its Biodiversity Plan, the City of Paris aims to correct this pitfall by integrating biodiversity into all stages of construction, development and rehabilitation projects. A tool for evaluating practices Inspired by the avoid-reduce-compensate sequence, the BiodivScore is a tool to assess the biodiversity performance of projects and to help them move towards the least impact in terms of biodiversity. This tool therefore encourages the avoidance of impacts on biodiversity, or, failing that, their reduction and, as a last resort, the compensation of residual impacts. Four assessment axes are developed to cover the entire timeframe of the project: o Evaluation of the ecological potential to be calculated before and after in order to compare the trend between the initial and projected situations; o Evaluation of the programming and construction choices to assess the consideration given to biodiversity by the project owner and the contractor; o Assessment of the avoidance and reduction of the impacts of the works during the construction phase; o Assessment of the planned management.

National Urban Parks Policy, More and Better Parks for Chile

In Chile, our cities are facing a series of challenges as a result of the increase in the urban population and the socio-spatial segregation that this increase has been associated with. Problems such as environmental pollution, the effects of climate change and vulnerability to disaster risk, constitute a threat to the health and quality of life of its inhabitants. Urban growth and densification generate a growing demand for more and better urban parks, while the land available to materialize them is increasingly scarce. Added to the challenge of land availability is that of equity in the distribution of existing parks and green areas. Providing Chile with a National Policy for Urban Parks (PNPU) represents a unique opportunity to protect and strengthen the vital role that urban parks play in the sustainability and resilience of our cities, in the well-being and quality of life of its inhabitants. , and in the future development of the country. The PNPU ​​is the result of hard multisectoral work led by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (MINVU) with different public agencies, the private sector, academia and civil society. In addition, it was developed with a wide territorial deployment in the 16 administrative regions of the country and with citizen participation processes.

In our collective imagination an urban park is a public place of free access and usually run by local authorities. Its main objective is recreation although there are additional environmental, social, and economic benefits. Under the current urban context of overpopulation, pollution, climate change and mainly prevailing water scarcity, urban parks face great challenges for their maintenance. In this session, success stories from Tijuana, San Nicolás Garza and the tree planting model in Saltillo, all cities in Mexico, are reviewed.

Changing the Narrative Through Park Management: A New Public Space with Consensus, Participation and Urban Transformation

An abandoned park with a low-security perception can become a family destination and women gathering place. The indicators measured in Parque Cuscatlán in San Salvador show that we can recover areas that community thought was lost. The good news is that this exercise can be replicated, and with the case of Parque Cuscatlán and the multiple measurements that have been made in this space, very positive results can be anticipated. Public-private partnerships can achieve this goal if they are adequately supported with the help of legal instruments such as agreements and other tools such as effective communication and the search for consensus. From Buenos Aires, The Elefante Blanco Public Park is in the center of Barrio 15 (called the Hidden City), a neighborhood that has been neglected and built by its inhabitants. The park, as well as a new government headquarters, are located where a building from the 1930s used to stand, abandoned since the 1950s. The design and execution of an unprecedented work in the city was given way, which incorporated 12,000 m² of public green space, where the needs of the affected population were prioritized, generating consensus and promoting a new physical and symbolic appropriation of the built environment. A park's proper management can change the narrative and meaning of a space.

Game Changer: How Small Parks can Leverage BIG Influence

Stories shape our lives. Even in parks management – the story we tell is one of the most powerful communication tools we have at our disposal in order to influence, inspire and motivate. Management software, task schedulers and online reporting systems are now common and useful tools for the modern manager. But documenting the journey or aspirations of a park in a written “story” is increasingly rare. Politicians and key policy makers are the people that can unlock the best staffing, funding and resources for our parks. Like most of us, they are often driven and moved to make decisions; not through flat facts and figures - but through meaningful and engaging stories. In this hybrid talk and workshop event, Carl will explore the power of telling a good story and how this can help to get the things you need to deliver better funded and managed parks. This is presented through the concept of the Green Flag Award - which for 25 years has provided a successful framework for storytelling through park-specific management plans. Attendees will view a selection of example management plans whilst identifying and discussing the key audiences, themes and messages of their own park story. This exercise will help visualise how showing the right people ‘under the bonnet’ of the parks machine can help achieve your goals to deliver better parks. About the Green Flag Award The Green Flag Award is a non-profit international accreditation program that recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces. Originating in 1996 - today the Green Flag Award proudly flies above more than 2,000 places in 17 countries around the world.

Collaborative By Design: Parks Canada’s New Network of National Urban Parks

A collaborative and partnership based model is a successful approach for a federally-led urban park program. Join Parks Canada and partners to learn more about the new National Urban Parks Program, which represents the next evolution for Parks Canada whose history over 110 years has provided Canadians a system of national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas. Building on the success of the Rouge National Urban Park, Parks Canada has committed to collaborate with municipalities, provinces, Indigenous partners, conservation organizations and park advocacy groups, among others, to identify opportunities for creating or expanding national urban parks in urban and near-urban settings. This new network of national urban parks will also include areas managed under a range of flexible governance models, including federally administered places, 3rd party administered places, and partnership models. Our network is working together to create new national urban parks that will help protect biodiversity, support climate resilience, connect people to nature, improve mental health and wellness, promote cultural heritage, and increase social inclusion. They will also provide opportunities to support reconciliation with Indigenous populations and build collaborative relationships with Indigenous partners. This interactive session will offer a hybrid presentation and workshop format, to engage and benefit all participants.

Manage the Municipal Green Infrastructure; a commitment to Public Health and Biodiversity

From the perspective of the conservative management of the municipal green heritage, a change in approach has been promoted with respect to the traditional green model, which is conceived as a set of scattered parks and gardens, to adopt another that conceives them as a network of spaces natural resources interconnected in such a way that they constitute a true green infrastructure. Taking as a reference the evolution developed in Zaragoza (Spain); Zaragoza's green infrastructure includes urban and peri-urban green spaces, as well as those of the natural area of ​​a territorial nature. Its management integrates more aspects than those that have traditionally been taken into account, but it is approached from a more holistic and comprehensive perspective. Logically, it was necessary to continue with the traditional tasks of pruning, mowing, cleaning, irrigation, etc., but their planning and management had to be integrated into a new, more global, more sustainable, healthier approach, more "thinking about the people" who use them. . The general objective of the new model is to renaturalize and connect the city with its territory, contributing to the fulfillment of climate action objectives and the promotion of biodiversity, promoting urban greening by increasing green areas rich in biodiversity, connected and of low cost of maintenance due to its high naturalness and adaptation to the environment compared to the traditional model of more intensive gardening, as well as improving the well-being and health of citizens, promoting simultaneous management of green and blue spaces, facing the fragmentation of the territory in favor of biodiversity and designing an urban green metabolism project.

Yoga Session: The Big Sit x World Urban Parks

The Big Sit was born out of a premise to bring people together to practice mindfulness meditation in the city. Organized by Mindful Moments in collaboration with the Conscious Cities Index research project, and initiated by a group of volunteers, the first Big Sit took place on Mindfulness Day on 12 September 2020 at Urban Park, Guoco Tower in the CBD of Singapore. The Big Sit has since taken place regularly at various places including Urban Park and Gardens By The Bay in Singapore, as well as London, with the aim of driving purposeful use of urban spaces in the city to improve the mental health and wellbeing of citizens, as well as collectively build a healthier and more conscious society. We envision that The Big Sit will inspire more people to make intentional use of spaces in their cities to practice mindfulness and be able to eventually extend these skills to their personal and professional lives. • Participants are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes earlier to set up their practice space. • Participants are encouraged to dress in comfortable clothing and shoes, and bring along their own yoga mat / large towel to sit on, as well as drinking water. This activity has additional cost, will be in English and has limited availability.

YIMBY Arnhem! empowers green citizen.

What is YIMBY Arnhem!? YIMBY is the acronym for Yes-In-My-Back-Yard. YIMBY Arnhem! started in 2013 with the distribution of small scale food growing platforms, called YIMBY's, to the citizen of Arnhem. At the same time green education was offered to urban food growers to convert green enthusiasm into green harvest. During ten years hundreds of citizen in Arnhem joined the YIMBY social network of growing healthy, organic food in the city. The succes of YIMBY Arnhem! are the people supported by local government and local branches of green companies. YIMBY is a culture of YES, positively stimulating social innovation for a healthier, greener and more social neighbourhood. The YIMBY experience demonstrates that changes do not start in The Hague, Brussels or Strasbourg. The change to a greener and more social Europe starts at home, in the backyard of people. YIMBY Arnhem! shows that in due time small grassroots initiatives steadily grow and empower people into social inclusion and green cooperation.

The case for natural and green assets - a cross-sectoral approach

In the drive for financial and environmental sustainability, natural assets can be used in parallel with or to replace some traditional approaches and hard assets. An infrastructure project to reduce the risk of flooding that may, for example, have previously used hard assets like a dam or a levee built from materials trucked into the site might instead use vegetated wetlands. In many cases, these natural solutions come with lower capital and operating costs, and they can mitigate urban heat islands and support resilience to the impacts of climate change. Natural assets also bring additional benefits; they can enhance recreational opportunities, purify air, improve soil quality and enhance habitat. The interaction of urban green infrastructure components can collectively help conserve biodiversity and restore ecological processes. Canada and, in particular, the state of British Columbia have become leaders in this emerging area of asset management practice. This presentation reviews some leading examples of the application of natural assets in urban green infrastructure. It also focuses on the human element and how a cross-sectoral approach across engineering, finance, urban foresters and horticulturalists is critical to future success.

Equitable Park Investments - 3 Cities, 3 Stories

Equity in service delivery is a guiding concern of urban park leaders. This presentation will explore how this interest can be turned to a tangible action that makes public parks better for all city residents. Three legacy urban centers with remarkable diversity in the heartland of America – Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Louisville – decided to create new comprehensive investment action plans for their park systems focused on driving equitable access to, and investments in, public parks and recreation services and systems for all city residents. These three cities shared a general goal – overcome barriers and historical challenges in the delivery of their park system services that will allow them to prioritize serving the people and neighborhoods that have long been forgotten, underserved, and marginalized. The action plans of all three cities are based on the principal that everyone, every neighborhood, and every city deserves access to a great public park system, and thus look holistically at the needs of every park, the needs of every neighborhood, and the creation of a system where the public can clearly shape improvement plans. This session will provide attendees with an overview of developing equitable and transparent investment action plans while exploring the unique opportunities and challenges discovered in each of these three cities.

The theory of change of tree policy

Human behaviour and our attitude to nature brought us where we are right now. Human influence changed the climate, resulting in a decline in biodiversity and an increase of pest and diseases. More and more we realise that humans reached the limits of their expansion, but we cannot exist independent of nature. Trees are an important part of nature in the cultivated Urban Forest we live in. Now, tree policy and tree management is based on prevention of risks, in which we completely ignore the values that trees have for biodiversity and all organisms that live together with trees. Therefore, the focus of tree policy has to change. The Theory of Change of tree policy is a comprehensive description and illustration of the impact of policy change and resources that need to be understood by key decision-makers and influencers. Protecting the value of trees and keeping trees as long lasting organisms that shelter biodiversity and provide protection and form connections with many organisms is essential. Not numbers but the quality of trees will help to reach urgent climate mitigation and political goals. Using Lidar point clouds to collect data on Ecosystem Services of every individual tree gives resources and evidence to strategies, policies and urban planning. In addition, validated eco inventory systems to protect and stimulate ecological values of trees provide the necessary information. Finally, the ultimate goal of the practice of the Theory of Change is to create liveable Future Urban Jungles.

Model for Sustainable Landscape Construction

The sustainable landscape construction (KESY) operational model defines how the project client, designer, builder, and maintainer can incorporate sustainable environmental construction practices at each stage of the project. The aim of sustainable environmental construction is to avoid, mitigate, or prevent adverse impacts on the environment resulting from construction activities. From the perspective of sustainable development, ecological sustainability is particularly emphasized in environmental construction. In construction, we address natural processes: the circulation of water, soil, and vegetation, which are critical factors for ecosystem services. The goal is to strive to preserve the vitality and continuity of these processes, requiring an understanding of the larger picture and their consideration in all activities. The KESY operational model represents a significant step in contemplating how to address growing global challenges. Climate change, more efficient resource utilization, reduced energy consumption, pollution prevention, safeguarding biodiversity, community engagement, as well as the accessibility and diversity of pleasant living environments, are all examples of perspectives considered within the operational model. The KESY operational model sets the direction for action, responding to the general goals of sustainable development as applied to the green sector.

Valuing Nature: Innovative Approaches to Combat Biodiversity and Ecosystem Restoration

This presentation addresses the urgency of re-evaluating economic systems governing our relationship with nature. Amid discussions focused on market-based approaches to 'valuing nature,' this session highlights the significant opportunity within traditional infrastructure asset management. This overlooked avenue incorporates natural assets into a traditional asset manager's portfolio, emphasising the opportunity and examples for the sustainable management of natural assets as a cost-effective alternative to grey or built infrastructure. Urban landscapes are vital to the global economy but primarily exist outside market systems. "Valuing Nature" delves into recognising the intrinsic value of natural assets in urban environments. Exploring market-based, asset accounting, and landowner voluntary approaches, this discussion aligns seamlessly with the conference theme of "Future Green City." Learning Outcomes: Economic Valuation Approaches: The presentation will explore the diverse economic valuation approaches within the broader theme of 'Valuing Nature.' • Market-Based Solutions: Examine the potential of market-driven instruments such as biodiversity certificates and Green Sovereign Bonds and their benefits and concerns. • Voluntary Conservation Covenants: Explore the role of landowners in protecting natural environments and how government support can incentivise participation. • Asset Accounting: A practical approach. Understand the significant potential within traditional infrastructure asset management to integrate and value natural assets in public professional practice. Holistic Solutions: Recognise the necessity for a multifaceted approach, combining market-based, voluntary strategies and asset accounting for effective ecosystem restoration. "Valuing Nature" concisely explores innovative strategies contributing to the broader dialogue and practical solutions for sustainable urban development. Integrating these approaches, which have application to cities around the world, is crucial for creating a truly green and liveable future city.

Challenges in managing public space: insights from public space management practice

Public spaces face long-term challenges, such as energy transition and climate adaptation, which involve a range of adaptations in the existing public spaces. Simultaneously, managers face short-term everyday challenges. This article explores how Dutch public space managers deal with short- and long-term challenges that affect the effectiveness of public space management. This qualitative study based on exploratory interviews with managers provides insight into the obstacles public space managers face in dealing with these long-term and short-term challenges. The study found four characteristics of the current practice: (1) the sectoral division between design and management, (2) the conflictand- action approach, (3) the asset-based focus, and (4) the linear approach. Together, these characteristics prevent the current practice from effectively facing both long-term and short-term challenges. The findings provide a starting point to think about how public space management could be reorganized to ensure the quality and functionality of public space in the future.

What local food does for a healthy and liveable municipality

Producing food in and around a municipality has many benefits and a positive effect on people and their environment. It offers added value for health and well-being, social cohesion, quality of life, climate adaptation, the environment and for the local economy. Scientific research from the Netherlands and abroad supports this. As well as the social impact meter MAEX: local food projects contribute greatly to health and well-being (SDG 3) and sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11). Urban farming can contribute to a solution to current themes such as obesity and poverty. Urban farming is part of the food transition. Worldwide and also in the Netherlands there are beautiful examples of urban agriculture, small-scale in and large-scale around municipalities. EVA Lanxmeer is a neighbourhood in Culemborg where, from the very beginning more than 20 years ago, local food production (the edible neighbourhood), resident participation and community spirit have played a role, as well as biodiversity and climate adaptation. The district has 300 households. The residents grow their own fruit and vegetables, manage an apple and pear orchard and public green spaces. They are also involved in the adjacent Caetshage City Farm. Primary school pupils are taught here. Caetshage also offers supportive guidance and daytime activities for people with care needs.

Schoolgardening for a healthy and nature conscious generation

We will make a tour along several educational gardening sites, where participants will see and experience school gardening, the programs that are successful in the Netherlands and the effects it has on our youngest generation. It would be great to pair a field trip with a classroom presentation in collaboration with Iris de Leeuw, who is researching the effects of school gardening on healthy eating patterns. Please consider a combination of a scientific presentation with a field trip XL. During the field trip, we will not only focus on the healthy city. School gardens are part of a green city with lots of focus on biodiversity, nature education, watering systems, etc. A school garden is an outside learning environment where we teach children about healthy habits and share love for and knowledge about nature with the goal

Parksafari door groen Amsterdam!

Ontdek de kracht van de Amsterdamse stadsparken en hun waarde voor de natuurinclusieve samenleving. Het groene goud; zo betitelen Amsterdammers hun stadsparken. Dat zegt iets over de enorme waarde die parken hebben voor inwoners, maar ook over de bijdrage die parken leveren aan het stedelijk ecosysteem. Weten hoe het werkt? Ga dan mee met deze ‘stadsparken fieldtrip’ en ontdek de kracht van natuur in de stad. Stadsparken krijgen een steeds belangrijkere rol in het stedelijke landschap. De bevolking groeit, de stad wordt diverser en klimaatverandering zorgt vaker voor problemen. Dat vraagt om een nieuwe en vooral inclusievere kijk op de openbare ruimte. Een ruimte die rekening houdt met de wensen en behoeften van bewoners. Waar de natuur de ruimte krijgt om als groene longen van de stad te fungeren en klimaatproblemen op te vangen. Tijdens deze safari nemen we je mee naar het Noorderpark van Amsterdam om je te laten zien hoe de stadsparken van de toekomst kunnen bijdragen aan een toegankelijke en natuurinclusieve samenleving. Door vanuit verschillende perspectieven te kijken naar een park, ontdek je de hoeveelheid aan waarden die een park heeft voor de stad. Denk aan recreatie, ecologie, sociale cohesie, welzijn en welbevinden, en zoveel meer. Wij laten zien deze waarden elkaar kunnen versterken en welke rol jij daarin speelt.

The Vertical Cables and Piping system (VKLS): an innovative way or organising subterranean infrastructure in the cities.

For our session we want to bring the VKLS to the people. By giving an informative presentation where we present the progress, pitfalls and lessons we have learned from this project so far we want to share our experiences so far. Furthermore we want to show how the project takes shape in the future and allow the participants to share their questions or insights. During our presentation we will show video material made during the Living Lab faze that starts on Januari 1st 2024. We also want to bring the prototype of the VKLS that we used for previous exhibitions. This will make sure to convey that the VKLS is not just an abstract idea, but a physical means to solve the spacial issues that many cities around the globe have to deal with. Ultimately we want the participants to leave our session inspired and as enthusiastic about the VKLS as we are as we truly believe the VKLS is a viable and worthwhile solution to a problem that is not just Dutch, but global in nature.

Designing safer parks for women and girls

Participants will work in groups to design and build a model park with women's and girl's safety as a key priority. The models will then be assessed against the principles outlined in the recent, widely acclaimed guidance "Safer Parks - Improving access for women and girls", and feedback provided to them. Participants will then be given the opportunity to make corrections following the learning from the principles. Facilitators will assist them throughout the exercise and provide hints and tips in line with the guidance. The models will also be digitally mapped using industry standard 3D modelling software such as Sketchup, then use Twin Motion or Lumion to create an eye-level first-person view walkthrough of each park, before and after intervention. This will help participants visualise the improvements made and will also become digital assets to promote this unique exercise during and after the congress. Paul will begin with a short introduction to the concepts from the guidance, then be assisted by a team of facilitators who will split the participants into 4 or 5 groups to play the game. A chartered landscape architect will record the layouts of each park at both stages.

Burgerparticipatie en een groene stad: een (on)mogelijke combinatie

De openbare ruimte is publiek. Dit deel van de stad is van iedereen. Mag iedereen daar dan over meebeslissen? Hoe wenselijk is het om stakeholders als inwoners, ondernemers en organisaties te laten meebepalen over de inrichting van de openbare ruimte. Want wat gebeurt er als een groene. Klimaatadaptieve. toekomstbestendige openbare ruimte conflicteert met andere belangen? Zijn inwoners in staat lange termijn voordelen voorrang te geven boven hun persoonlijke korte termijn privileges? Kan een ondernemer zijn financieel belang ondergeschikt maken aan het grotere, algemene belang? Wat kun je als overheid doen om Not In My Back Yard-gedrag te voorkomen? En werkt burgerparticipatie ook in een omgeving waar de overheid zeer sturend is. Of waar inwoners niet gewend zijn openlijk hun mening te uiten. Of is burgerparticipatie juist dé manier om vergroening en klimaatadaptatie op de kaart te zetten op plekken waar de overheid niets heeft met dit onderwerp? Experts vanuit verschillende hoeken gaan met elkaar en met het publiek in debat over de onmogelijkheden en de mogelijkheden van burgerparticipatie en vergroening/klimaatadaptatie. Burgerparticipatie en een groene stad gaan niet samen. Hoe meer burgerparticipatie, hoe versteender de stad. Burgerparticipatie vertraagt. Wil je meters maken en in 2050 een groene, klimaatadaptieve stad hebben, neem dan zelf het heft in handen. Burgerparticipatie kan prima samen gaan met een groene ontwikkeling, mits je particulieren op de juiste manier benadert met een goede communicatiestrategie. Burgerparticipatie is de oplossing voor vergroening van de buitenruimte in landen waar de overheid niets heeft met vergroening.

Marketingbenadering van klimaatadaptatie

In veel steden is het grootste deel van het terrein in handen van particulieren. Wil je dat de stad groener wordt, dan kan dat alleen wanneer overheid en particulieren beide aan de slag gaan. Hoe motiveer je inwoners, ondernemers en organisaties hun terrein klimaatbestendig te maken en te vergroenen? Hoe verleid je hen om in actie te komen? De wetenschap die als geen ander weet hoe je mensen tot bepaald gedrag kunt verleiden is de marketing. Waarom niet ‘klimaatadaptatie’ benaderen als product waarvan je wilt dat mensen het kopen, gebruiken en er fan van worden. Sinds een aantal jaren past de gemeente Enschede een marketingbenadering toe op het onderwerp klimaatadaptatie. Alle klimaatadaptatieprojecten worden ge’brand’ met hetzelfde label als ware het een merk. Daarnaast keert Enschede het traditionele kennis-houding-gedrag model om. Van actie naar houding en kennis. Wat betekent dit in de praktijk? En hoe pak je zoiets aan? In een interactieve classroom leren de deelnemers over de aanpak van Enschede.

Equity in het groen: de Tree Equity Score voor Nederland

Het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek legt per buurt en wijk vast hoe ze "scoort" ten opzichte van alle andere buurten en wijken. Dat geldt voor socio-economische statistieken, maar net zo goed voor groenstatistieken. Weinig bomen? Dan vaak ook een laag gezinsinkomen. Hoge temperaturen? Dan vaak ook veel werkeloosheid. Er is een verband tussen die zaken. De vraag is: Hoe krijgen we dit nu goed in beeld? En als we het in beeld hebben, hoe kunnen we onze vergroeningsinspanningen optimaal inrichten, zodat juist de minderbedeelden in de samenleving er het meeste van kunnen profiteren? Vanuit de VS komt daarvoor het Tree Equity Score instrument naar ons toe. Daarmee kunnen we "positief discrimineren", om zo het groen eerlijker te verdelen in de stad. Maar zijn we daar als maatschappij wel aan toe? Voelt dat wel goed?

We all know that Urban Heat Islands are a significant issue moving forward. Planting more trees is a tried and tested method of mitigating this issue. But do you have the space to plant more trees? Where can you still add trees to your already crowded city? How much will you gain from them, once you do plant these trees? And finally: perhaps you as a human do not like urban heat islands, but your urban forest does not like it either! Will your current trees survive, in this changing climate, and if they do not, which species should you plant? In this workshop we will get you up to speed on the peculiarities of urban heat islands, and we will work together towards mitigating the urban heat islands for the most healthy city possible.

Hoe maak je als gemeente een vergroeningsopgave met bomen?

Bomen dragen bij aan ambities voor leefbaarheid, klimaat, gezondheid, natuur en landschap. Maar waar plant je bomen in een dichtbebouwde openbare ruimte? Hoe neem je de ideeën van inwoners mee? En wat doe je als je te maken krijgt met maatschappelijke weerstand? In het meerjarenproject ‘TreeMark Woerden’ zetten diverse partijen zich in voor een gezond, veilig en klimaatbestendig bomenbestand voor gemeente Woerden. De afgelopen 4 jaar zijn er in de stedelijke omgeving van de gemeente al meer dan 1.000 nieuwe bomen geplant en meer dan 100 bomen met een slechte conditie vervangen. De bomen krijgen een goed ingerichte groeiplaats en er wordt rekening gehouden met de diversiteit van het sortiment. Zo wordt er onder andere gewerkt aan het verminderen van hittestress, het versterken van groene structuren en verrijken van de biodiversiteit. Bovendien is er een participatietraject doorlopen om rekening te houden met de wensen en bezwaren van inwoners, belanghebbenden en beheerders van de openbare ruimte. Ben je benieuwd hoe dit in zijn werk is gegaan? Stap met ons op de fiets en krijg een rondrit door Woerden!

Green Cities need Smart Software

Information Technology is needed and used to achieve a green and healthy living environment. Based on our mission to “Shape the future of Society through Technology” we will inform you about the importance, availability and development of specific IT solutions. Within Visma various companies, covering Northern Europe with an accent on the Benelux and the Scandic countries, have developed multiple SaaS solutions in the area of Spatial Planning & Zoning, Permitting & Code Enforcement, Asset Management, Case Management and Sustainability Management. Employees of hundreds both Public and private organisations are using these tools to support smart and integral decision making and realise positive impact. Whether it concerns more greenery in the city or less CO2 and NOx emissions: when we set a goal and determine what to do to accelerate, we immediately focus the available energy in the right direction. This requires data, periodic measurements of how things are going, goals and improvement programs. That's where smart software comes into play. We will furthermore illustrate the need for interaction between policy makers with IT developers, by the case of the Environmental Protection Act (“Omgevingswet”) in the Netherlands. Both similarities as well as differences in the approach within the various countries in Northern Europe will be addressed. Also the importance of Geographical Information and the possibilities offered by the use of Artificial Intelligence will be covered.

Getting the trees right - Talking the language of municipal parks trees in the face of climate change

Trees have always been an essential feature of public parks. However in the face of climate change - our approach to practices such as species selection, planting techniques and ongoing maintenance needs to adapt. These changes need to consider the unique landscape of each park, designed at multiple scales and in response to particular geographic, historical, and cultural contexts. They also need to be made with an understanding of the 'forest-scape' which characterizes each park, not just to combat climate change, but to preserve the park's sense of place and role in providing valuable physical and educational experiences for the public. In his talk Rene van der Velde draws on ongoing research around tree architecture, park design, climate change and urban forestry, and presents a framework for revising the design and management of trees in parks.

Toekomstbestendige stad met risicogestuurd beheer

Hoe bepaal je welke delen van de stad aangepakt worden? De gemeente Enschede maakt de stad klimaatadaptief met behulp van een risicogestuurde methodiek. Bij risicogestuurd beheer kijken we naar de effecten van extreem weer, welke we wel of niet accepteren en waarom. Wat betreft de effecten van extreem weer, kun je denken aan invloed op onderwerpen als veiligheid, gezondheid, bereikbaarheid, leefbaarheid openbaar en particulier terrein, kosten, klachten etc. Met behulp van onze klimaateffectatlas bepalen we eerst waar kwetsbare locaties zijn en vervolgens bepalen we per locatie welke risico’s dit oplevert. Vervolgens bespreken we met bewoners, ondernemers en met de gemeenteraad of deze risico’s acceptabel zijn. Dit volgens de definitie: risico = kans x effect. Vervolgens kijken we globaal naar welke maatregelen we kunnen treffen wat deze maatregelen kosten. Daarbij zoeken we naar evenwicht tussen de acceptatie van risico’s en de omvang van kosten, om de risico’s naar een aanvaardbaar peil terug te brengen. Naast inzicht over wat men acceptabel vindt creëer je op deze manier bewustwording over de risico’s, de oplossingen die de gemeente kan uitvoeren, maar ook de maatregelen die je op particulier terrein kunt treffen. Van alle locaties maken we op basis van de hoogte van de risico’s een prioritering en vervolgens stellen we een uitvoeringsprogramma op. Tijdens deze classroom introduceert beleidsadviseur Rik Meijer, een van de grondleggers van de risicogestuurd methodiek, het risicogestuurd beheer en laat hij zien hoe je dit kunt toepassen op bijvoorbeeld (grond)wateroverlast en hittestress.

Greenblueprints to facilitate future city design

Een groenblauw structuurplan vormt een blauwdruk en basisplan voor toekomstige gewenste gebiedsontwikkelingen. Het helpt om openbare ruimte-projecten integraal aan te pakken en advies te geven bij initiatieven op particulier terrein. Ontwikkelingen en initiatieven - ook van andere disciplines dan water en groen, bijvoorbeeld verkeer of bouw, kunnen het verminderen van wateroverlast, het uitbreiden van het groen en het opvangen van water meenemen. Of, in het minste geval, niks doen wat deze dingen in de toekomst belemmert. De gemeente Enschede maakt voor diverse wijken van de stad groenblauwe structuurplannen. In deze workshop gaan we met deelnemers aan de slag om de basis te leggen voor groenblauwe structuurplannen in (een deel van) hun stad. Groenblauw structuurplannen vormen een globaal toekomstgericht ontwerp van de openbare ruimte, vanuit de disciplines water, klimaatadaptatie en groen. De groenblauwstructuurplannen laten op hoofdlijnen zien: • hoe we de overlast van grondwater en regenwater aan willen pakken • waar water boven de grond opgeslagen kan worden en willen infiltreren • waar we bestaande planten en bomen houden of verbeteren • waar we extra ruimte voor planten en bomen maken • welke functie het groen op een bepaalde plek heeft Als basis voor de groene en klimaatadaptieve maatregelen ontwikkelen we een set aan te onderscheiden maatregelen die we bouwstenen noemen. Deze bevatten naast een beschrijving van de maatregel ook voorwaarden voor toepassing, koppelingen met andere maatregelen, en informatie over effectiviteit, kosten en mate van participatie. Voor openbaar en particulier terrein. Deze bouwstenen zijn niet alleen bruikbaar bij het opstellen van groenblauwe structuurplannen, maar passen we ook toe bij het ontwerp van de openbare ruimte. Een groenblauw structuurplan bevat een concrete vertaling van de doelstellingen uit ons Water- en Klimaatadaptatieplan en de ambities uit het Groenambitieplan, op wijkniveau. Daarbij helpt dit plan ons om projecten integraal aan te pakken en advies te geven bij initiatieven op particulier terrein.

The role of ‘Blue’ in urban Green-Blue spaces

The main lecture shows the importance of blue spaces as part of the green-blue infrastructure based on recent research in Northern American and European cities. Both small and large urban canals, rivers and lakes/ponds are increasingly used for important functions such as irrigation of urban green spaces, recreation (including swimming), transportation (especially transport of goods) and aqua thermal energy (e.g., extracting thermal energy from surface water to heat buildings). Main drivers of this trend are urban growth and redevelopment, climate change and sustainability ambitions. Research in Ghent (Belgium) and Amsterdam (The Netherlands), reveals the current suitability of urban canals for human use functions and how these can be improved. Optimizing the suitability of urban surface water bodies requires design and water management interventions. Practitioners from several cities will reflect on the practical relevance of the scientific insights. They will also demonstrate how they deal with the planning and design of urban water in innovative ways. Participants of this session are invited for an interactive discussion on how to optimally use, plan and design urban water in the context of future green cities.

Parks In Disguise. The value of cemeteries as public open space.8MonstaBox

Cemeteries are parks in disguise. These parks are masked by death and their main purpose as places to (inter/memorialise) our families and friends are enveloped as a landscaped garden, an image of nature that frames, assures and comforts our memories. These unique urban parks manifest notions of adaptation and transformation, nature, inclusion, attraction and sustainability that expose the emotions. Cemeteries offer the luminous qualities of health and wellbeing, that nourishes the mind, body and soul. Accessing these quiet places provides both an avenue for contemplation and wonder, and signpost a way to reconcile our experience of loss and our relationship with death. By activating cemeteries as local urban parks, opportunities for improving urban lifestyles already exist. Cemeteries landscapes can counter-act the emotional stress of living with increasing urban density by increasing biodiversity, managing water and providing general access to nature. The World Urban Parks Cemeteries Committee propose to present a short film (10-15 mins) expounding the value of cemeteries when viewed together as urban parks. An audience Q & A will follow to spark further insights and perspectives through conversation and discourse. Together, the presentation aims to raise the profile of urban cemeteries as places to be, rather than spaces to fill.

In this project, we aim to get insight into increasing effectiveness and creating conditions for structural embedding of school gardening programs in Dutch primary schools. As we approach the midway point of the project in September 2024, we will share preliminary results and engage participants in an interactive discussion to gather insights on the future role of school gardening. How do we embed them in the primary school curriculum in a structural way? What are challenges and how can we solve those? What resources do we need to integrate school gardening, and with that health & nature education, into the school curriculum? Do you want to completely dive into the world of school gardening? Combine this Science Lab Session with the Fieldtrip XL organised by Alliantie Schooltuinen.

Mapping Landscape Potential for Supporting Green Infrastructure: The Case of Rizal Park Luneta

Ecological, social, and environmental problems can be addressed with the help of green infrastructure (GI), a strategic planning method. Enhancing ecological networks, particularly in urban setting, and conserving natural and semi-natural landscapes are further goals of GI. The integration of urban and rural landscape units can be achieved by GI planning within the framework of spatial planning. Three steps will be involved in this study to determine the landscape potential and map GI in the Rizal Park Luneta: (1) classifying landscape types using landscape character analysis; (2) evaluating landscape types based on three criteria: landscape connectivity, diversity, and rareness; and (3) identifying LP for mapping GI. One of the most important phases in figuring out the landscape potential was to define the landscape typology, which would be done using the Landscape Character Assessment (LCA). Next, the various landscape types will be evaluated in accordance with predetermined standards, which will direct the GI mapping process in Rizal Park. Thus, this research provides a reference for identifying potential location for incorporating GI on urban parks as a contributor to nature conservation, ecological network and spatial planning strategies. This will also help in mainstreaming GI on the hard physical/ infrastructure developments starting with public parks.

Visual Media Analysis from Instagram to Understand Park Visitor Reference at Rizal Park Luneta

As social media and visual culture continue to evolve, photos and data from online platforms are now being used to understand the perspectives and preferences of their users. Rizal Park Luneta, a national park located in Manila, Philippines, has been a part of the memories of many Filipinos. However with the changes in the trends, needs and wants of the society, the preferences and perspectives of the park visitors have also changed. As such, the park’s managing office conducted a visual media analysis of the uploaded photos (digital landscapes) geotagged at Rizal Park Luneta at Instagram, one of the most used and associated online media platforms with visual study, to understand what landscape elements and activities currently attract and encourage the public to visit the park. Through this, a better understanding of the general public’s current preferences, and identification of the park’s hotspots and dead spots will guide the managing body on what and where the landscape developments and events at Rizal Park Luneta should be implemented to keep the park relevant and to further attract more park visitors, to allow them to create meaningful memories, and to improve their visitor experiences.

Like Clockwork: Programming Park Activities in Rizal Park Luneta, Philippines

The concept of time varies across cultures and parks. Rizal Park Luneta has a life on its own: it operates at the break of dawn and closes late at night, wasting no time to showcase the unique Filipino identity to its people and the world. From dawn to late evening, various activities are designed and programmed, depending on the profiles of park goers entering the park at a given period of time. Through this day-in-a-life documentary, a montage of time-based park activities will be shown, to display how this national park continues to be integral in every part of the day of the Filipinos. It also aims to humanize Rizal Park Luneta, as it nurtures the Filipino way of life and the Filipinos’ deep reverence for the nation’s history and culture.

Parks Planning - Taking the Long View

How does a growing municipality plan for diversity in its parks system - long before the parks are built? St. Albert sought to rethink the park planning model, moving from opportunistic park development to a sequential and systematic program that considers parks from Area Structure Plan all the way to construction and operation. The result has been parks planned with both a city-wide and neighbourhood lens, ensuring a balance of amenities, considering unique neighbourhood demographics and needs and managing for current trends. This model has led to true partnerships with developers, expedited park development for residents, and a long term roadmap for the future of parks in St. Albert.

Liège Plan canopée. The City and citizen involvement

The Canopée Plan aims to increase the number of trees in the City of Liège by planting 8,000 public trees and 16,000 private trees by 2030. The Canopée Plan is a project that places urban trees at the heart of Liège's strategy for adapting to global climate change. Every inhabitant of Liège can contribute to the project. Indeed, it's necessary to plant not just in public spaces There are 1,717 hectares of grassland in Liège, representing 25% of the city. These 1,717 hectares are not evenly distributed between the different districts. It should also be noted that two-thirds of the lawns are privately owned. The success of the Liège Canopée Plan therefore requires the mobilisation of areas located on private land and the involvement of some of the landowners, whether citizens, associations, institutions or companies. The Canopée Plan will be initiated by the City of Liège, but it will above all be a collective and civic plan, to which everyone, whether a resident of Liège or not, will have the opportunity to contribute.

E-bikebox for e-bikers and e-policy makers; simple tool, big impact

What. E-bikebox is not only a solution for ebikers seeking a safe parking and loading place in the city, but also a solution for a city seeking to reduce air pollution and lowering the city’s temperature. Furthermore, being loading stations for e-cars as well, ebikeboxes form an infrastructure that helps to get car drivers out of their car and onto a bike. How? Ebikeboxes are ecofriendly built boxes with highly environmentally friendly plants on top (sedum!); added devises store water after intense rainfall and purify air at ground level. Sedum absorbs 200 grams of particulate matter per M2 meter, there are also fans at ground level with particulate filters that suck in and clean air.Since particulate matter sinks to the ground and particulate matter, tires, wear and tea of motors can be processed equally since ebike boxes are often located near the roads in the city. With sufficient boxes set up all over a city, available boxes can be reserved and accessed through electronic means at a place near one’s destination, be it school, office, park, sports facility, bus station or supermarket. Temperature reduction can be as much as 1,5-2 degrees Celsius, as is required in the Paris Agreement on climate control.

The Canopy Plan of the City of Liège: urban trees as green infrastructure at the center of the climate change adaptation strategy

The Canopy Plan, initiated in 2021, is a central part of the municipal territory's adaptation strategy to climate change. We carried out a scientific diagnosis of tree cover, potential tree planting sites and urban heat islands to obtain a rigorous and realistic approach to guide tree planting. We are carrying out an important reflection on regulatory ecosystem services, tree planting techniques and the selection of tree species compatible with the future climate of Liège. The overall objective of the project is to plant 24,000 additional trees between 2021 and 2032 to increase the tree cover rate from 31.4% to 34.4% in 2050. A third of the trees are planted in public domains and two thirds of the trees are planted in private domains. This project therefore requires strong citizen involvement. We have already achieved 25% of the objectives with some interesting difficulties to share for the conservation of existing trees and the planting of additional trees.

Transition of district heating with aquathermia: Green Change helps to bring partners together

In the Netherlands we have a lot of water. Here aquathermia is one of the promising sources for the transition to a fossil free heating system. This involves more than technical solutions, but foremost this is a socio-technical transition. In the co creation project "Warmte uit Water", Rijkswaterstaat, Alliander en Vereniging Nederlandse Riviergemeenten work together to facilitate municipalities for aquathermal projects with the heat of riverwater. The Green Change method helps to spark and solidify the cooperation between usual and unusual partners to start initiatives on district heating powered by aquathermia. The biggest challenges in speeding up these initiatives are not so much technical in nature, but lie in cooperation and aligning each other’s interests. Learn how to get stakeholders to: o understand what roles ‘old’ and ‘new’ stakeholders have in the energy transition, o get to a shared vision o formulate actions and research questions o and have stakeholders take on their responsibilities. Experience for yourself how a gamified approach helps partners to come together and tap into the creativity needed to get these ‘wicked’ transitions done. In this workshop you will experience how this tried and tested method fosters trust and has helped projects get funded.

Meeting the challenge to engage communities in the methodology of parkmaking

Over the last years Amsterdam had the unique opportunity to create a new park (Brasapark) on top of a motorway adding a vast new green area to its South-East City District. The Brasapark connects previously separated neighborhoods. Variation of utilization, diverse visitation and wide appreciation are important benchmarks for a successful park. Therefore, the City of Amsterdam chose an inclusive approach to realize this new part of the city. This approach was the primary focus in three consecutive planning phases: 1. Participatory planmaking 2. Co-creation in implemention 3. Inclusive park management During the planning process several issues and dilemma’s arose: • Issues about the openness of collaboration versus the urgency of making choices about the implementation, specifically if serious technical challenges also have to be met; • How do you create ownership and responsibility in a blank environment for a new park that will be fully grown in years from now? • How do you create trust, cooperation and alignment between municipality, residents and external partners? • How does park management become sustainable and stays responsive to changing needs of users and visitors? Case: What would your approach be for creating an inclusive park? How would you deal with dilemma’s and issues as mentioned above? Participants will split up in three working groups dedicated to the three planning phases and will discuss points of connection in a plenary closing session.

Healthy and sustainable parks in adaptive cities

Our lived experiences over the last few years of the global COVID pandemic and lockdowns have reinforced the absolute value of urban parks and green spaces for our mental and physical health and wellbeing. But what constitutes a healthy park, and why is this important? Healthy urban parks need to be spaces that are not just green, but have a low carbon footprint, are multi-functional, resilient and adaptive, and deliver climate positive outcomes. Access to urban green space and nature is fundamental for our health in our big cities and built urban environments, but how do we ensure adequate provision and quality of open space in rapidly growing cities? This presentation will profile case studies and projects from work that Mark has been involved in: • the international advocacy work of the WUP Healthy Parks Healthy Cities Committee • Auckland projects involving innovative research work on low carbon parks, carbon zero park certification, the design of a new sustainable park, and incorporation of traditional indigenous values around the connection between people and land • Planning open space requirements for a significant Melbourne transport infrastructure and urban renewal project that aims to maintain Melbourne’s status as one of the world’s most liveable cities Ultimately it is about creating healthy natural environments that will foster, promote and encourage positive health outcomes for people. Healthy parks and healthy people are intertwined – a healthy future depends on it !

Sustainable Land Use Plans: The Creation and Maintenance of Useful Thermodynamic Order

In this presentation, the “entropy-based resource management” organizing principle is offered as a framework for developing a Sustainable Land Use Plan for your city. The premise behind entropy-based resource management is that natural systems always act holistically to minimize entropy and associated energy losses, so leaving all resources in their highest, most ordered thermodynamic state after each and every natural process has been completed. Entropy-based resource management “mimics” natural processes, like photosynthesis, by always striving to create and maintain “order” in all aspects of resource management, from thermodynamic order at the molecular scale up to large-scale ecosystems, as well as in all our resource management and regulatory activities. In the land use planning realm, the objective is to minimize the entropy of the “built ecosystem” that will become your future city. Here, this Green, Nature-based strategy can help you both mitigate and adapt to Climate Change. In doing so, your new Symbiotic, Sponge City with its Circular, Regenerative Economy will effectively address the Biodiversity Crisis as well as the Climate Crisis. Consider using entropy-based resource management when developing the sustainable land use plan that you envision for your city. Your citizens will work less and enjoy life more, and your children and grandchildren will be safe, happy and stay with you in their home town when they grow up.

Living Lab Lindenholt: collaboration in the ‘’Tuinbrigade” project in Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Citizen initiatives are increasingly recognized as important players in strengthening the healthy living environment. What makes them special is that they are rooted in the neighborhood, they are easily accessible, they work in an integral manner and thereby connect to the needs of (vulnerable) residents. A beautiful example of such an initiative is the Broederij, located in the city district Lindenholt in Nijmegen. In 2021, the Broederij initiated the ‘’Tuinbrigade’’ project, which aims to green and beautify the neighborhood and to strengthen the social connectedness. A group of volunteers from the neighborhood restore neglected gardens, thereby working together on a liveable environment. The “Tuinbrigade” is an intersectoral collaboration between a citizen initiative, housing associations, the municipality of Nijmegen, community work and healthcare. With the Living Lab research project, we aimed to get insight into the experiences within the collaboration, what makes the Tuinbrigade successful and how this collaboration can be sustained so that everyone can profit from a health-promoting green and social living environment. We performed interviews, organized interactive workshops and made field observations during workdays with the volunteers. Based on the insights, we developed a sustainable model for collaboration. In this Science Lab, the research context and results of the Living Lab Lindenholt project will be shared. Lessons learned in this local context of Nijmegen could inform and inspire others who work on healthy living environments, community building, citizen initiatives and intersectoral partnerships.

The participatory mapping approach empowers community members by acknowledging their unique insights and perspectives, enhancing the contextual relevance of the typology. This inclusivity ensures that the findings reflect the diverse voices and aspirations of the communities involved. Moreover, the study highlights the interplay between different dimensions - social, economic, cultural, and environmental - that community gardens contribute to. This perspective could aid in the formulation of effective urban planning strategies that align with the specific needs and preferences in cities. Ultimately, this study not only enhances our understanding of community gardens but also demonstrates the power of participatory research in promoting sustainable urban development. By recognizing the integral role of local stakeholders, the research underscores the importance of community-driven initiatives in shaping resilient and thriving urban environments.

Mystery City Games: An Amsterdam City Escape Game. Leveraging games and puzzles for community engagement in urban planning.

One of the most difficult challenges faced by urban and environmental planners is engaging community members in meaningful participation in planning for urban spaces. Urban puzzle quests and escape games offer a unique opportunity for engaging community members in deep observation, learning and thoughtful conversation about cities. Mystery City Games, based in Amsterdam, is a leading developer of historically accurate and sustainability-focused escape games. Mystery City’s puzzle quests intertwine historical narratives and landscape-based puzzles to create a unique, enjoyable and educational experience. This field trip includes travel to Amsterdam where we will embark on a puzzle quest with Mystery City principles Emilie Mendes de Leon and Ben Sillevis. During the quest we will learn about key historical events and figures in Amsterdam, and their connections to the city as we experience it today. We will also collaborate to solve the mystery at the heart of the quest, by deciphering codes and puzzles. At the conclusion of the adventure we will hold a discussion about what planners can learn from game makers and vice versa, and how planners can leverage gaming for improved citizen involvement in the planning process.

The use of large parks to humanize and reinvigorate distressed cities, a case study of the Amsterdamse Bos

We as Amsterdamse Bos aim to be one of the precursors of climate adaptation in terms of knowledge, research, and impact on city level. From an innovative strategic perspective, we explore how the Amsterdamse Bos can contribute to Amsterdam City’s climate mitigation and adaptation. • What is the challenge of the forest? • How can innovation help to integrate the Amsterdamse Bos into the region’s climate adaptation challenges? • What is the practical applicability of our research? (resistance in tree species, waterlevel, etc.) • How can we measure the needs of the city and the ecosystem services provided by the forest? • How can we fit this ideology into the bio-physical, historical, and socio-cultural context of the forest? Through co-creation, peer-to-peer learning, and partnerships we strive to be not only one of the biggest city forests in Europe (and the world), but also one of leading in mitigating climate change.

The contradictory objectives of restoration of ecologies and intensely programmed sites in the Amsterdamse Bos

The Amsterdamse Bos is always in a state of transformation so it needs an inclusive attitude toward history, ecology, recreation and perception. There is a process of changes in the social uses of the urban forest due to shifts in population, emergent trends in recreation, community participation, and the incorporation of an ever-growing diversity of cultural practices into public landscapes. This is the daily friction of our commitment to placing nature at the very core of societal and personal life. The Amsterdamse Bos: • is hospitable, it is an urban forest that is made for and by the people of Amsterdam. • is protective, it is a nature reserve and aiming to increase biodiversity and protect its nature. • Innovative, with its diverse landscape and as one of the biggest city forests in Europe, it functions as a great research field. The question is how to reconcile the seemingly contradictory objectives of restoration of ecologies and intensely programmed sites?

How Can We Handle Threats To Urban Green - example Stockholm, Sweden

Urban Green is very different; greenery in backyards, gardens of different types, avenues of trees, cemeteries, hunting parks, golf courses, royal parks etc. Many Parks in Cities are often very well defined with fences and entrances. But much of the greenery have unclear boundaries and therefore exposed to exploitation. The question is how can we counteract threats to urban greenery. My examples of threats and countermeasures to urban greenery are mostly from Stockholm, Sweden.

Circular Water Management

In this workshop, we aim to inspire participants to consider a new form of integrated and circular water management in urban areas. How can we design a circular system that mutually reinforces solutions to these challenges? Can we transition to a system at the individual plot level where: - Excess water is effectively captured and utilized, - Adequate water is available during dry periods to ensure optimal functioning of a city (including its green spaces), - Drinking water consumption is minimized, - Systems are seamlessly integrated both internally and externally. The workshop will begin with an introduction covering the following topics: - The water transition: What challenges do we face? - The integrated approach: What solutions are available? --> In new construction scenarios (ranging from single-family homes to apartment complexes) --> In existing structures Participants will then work on designing an integrated circular water system for a specific plot through various case studies. Following the presentation of solutions, a thematic segment will address challenges in implementing such novel systems, exploring obstacles related to regulations, finances (business cases), and responsibilities.

Reconnecting Nature through Planning, Policy and Public Engagement in the City of Calgary

The successful measure for quality of life and health of a city is dependent upon the quality and health of its natural areas. Parks have always been viewed as playing an integral role in providing access to nature but not all green space is created equal. In a time where climate resilience is imperative cities can no longer be complacent planning for the protection and enhancement of its parks network. This session outlines the City of Calgary’s new direction for parks planning which uses ecological network planning and park functionality as the foundation for future development decisions to grow and enhance urban nature and ensure we build a sustainable city of the future. We will explore the three approaches the city is taking to build advocacy and support for successful implementation and change citywide. 1. Spatial analysis to assess 400 metre access to the major park functions which include: passive recreation, sport and quality natural environment. 2. Public engagement to ascertain public values and confirm park functionality. 3. Policy change to provide the rules ensuring the natural environment, and in specific the ecological network, provides the foundation for the design of new development and build natural connections within the existing city.

Tools for healthy urban development

In the Netherlands, by 2040, more than a quarter of the total labour force must be employed in healthcare to maintain our current level of healthcare, a result of an aging population and lifestyle diseases. Impossible in terms of both costs and personnel! The solution is not by endlessly investing more in healthcare, we must also improve our living environment in a way that it makes us healthier. Healthy urban development focuses on creating an environment which encourages healthy lifestyles and prevents us from harmful environmental factors. This Classroom starts with how to analyze how healthy an area is. Then, we interactively discuss which planning instruments and designs we can use to make healthier urban spaces. Various interventions promote health, such as cycle and walking routes, public sports equipment, water, pocket parks and green roofs. But not everything is possible: can we keep fast-food restaurants out of poor neighbourhoods? And what is the role of a social program or place-making, to make sure physical interventions actually work? Based on examples from practice, we create a range of instruments for the healthy city of the future. Participants leave the Classroom with concrete toolbox to work on a healthy living environment.

Parks and developing cities : how to invest in and develop urban parks when its not the country’s priority

In Armenia the lack of priority support for parks from government, and problems with quality and urban planning are common like in many developing countries. It is crucial to raise this issue and stress the importance of green urban spaces. As a topic for the debate we suggest to involve experts, community members and policy makers from different countries to discuss several topic: Stress the importance of green spaces for modern developing cities How to influence governmental policies and actions Encourage local businesses and entrepreneurship to invest in green areas Motivate community engagement through events and activities How to make green spaces economically sustainable It is important to hear case studies from developing countries that have successfully addressed similar challenges, reflecting on both successes and failures to develop effective short and long term strategies. This approach can foster a comprehensive understanding of the issues surrounding urban parks and promote the exchange of ideas for sustainable and inclusive solutions.

HILVERSUM: THE GARDEN CITY REVISITED

Cultural heritage as an inspiration for the Future Green City In this field trip XL the municipality of Hilversum will show you how the town deals with today’s challenges of biodiversity decline and climate change by using the principles of the Garden City. Garden City Hilversum is a middle size town, a 15-minutes city, that is internationally well known as Dutch media city, as city of young monuments (the famous Dudok town hall amongst them) and city of trees. The Garden City concept and principles evolved at the end of the nineteenth century due to a crisis of deplorable and unhealthy housing circumstances of the working class in the cities. The idea was to combine the advantages of living in a city with the advantages of living in a village: a good quality of housing, living and facilities in a green environment. These qualities as a solution to today’s crises is the subject of the Future Green City Conference. Specialists from Hilversum municipality will guide you through the protected townscape area of Hilversum-Oost. You will learn how cultural heritage, climate policy and green policy can strengthen each other within the human scale of the garden city. Re-using the qualities of our garden cities combines the best of our heritage and our future.

Nature Based Solutions and the Resilient City: the Emerging Role of Landscape Architecture in Future Proofing Cities

As cities throughout the world are dealing with the immediate and future impacts of the climate and biodiversity crisis, we are at a point where we need to aggressively change our approach to city building. Changing requires a collaborative approach between many disciplines and starts with shifting our expectations on built form. It requires advocacy, progressive regulations and incentives, and a focus on design that is sustainable and considers natural processes. Landscape architects, as the profession trained to ‘design with nature’, are key to delivering sustainable design solutions, from master planning to site design, that are both functional and beautiful. Through a case study approach, this presentation will highlight how landscape architects are advancing reformative change and innovative solutions with examples of green city initiatives from Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver, and from across the United Kingdom, UK, Europe, NZ and Asia. The presentation will also address the question of what future revolutionary tools, in development or imagined, we will need to better prepare communities for the challenges of the changing world as the crisis deepens and design solutions and technologies evolve

Biodiversity Sensitive Urban Design: the Call of the Wild!

As cities grow and take up more land, more water and indeed more resources of all kinds, many plants and animals have no choice but to relocate, adapt to urban life or farewell this planet. Species diversity and abundance are heavily impacted, ecosystems are fractured and biodiversity decline is a major and growing crisis around the world. Cities have played a major role in biodiversity decline, and now have a significant responsibility in biodiversity protection. We need to ask ourselves some serious questions about the future: • Should our cities be planned and designed to become biodiversity refugia for the future? • Should binding standards for protection and restoration of nature in cities be established? • Should Biodiversity Sensitive Urban Design (BSUD) be an essential requirement for cities? • What are the risks associated with designing for biodiversity, as well as for not designing for biodiversity? This discussion poses the notion that biodiversity must be incorporated into planning and design at all levels, and explores the opportunities, challenges and approaches for biodiversity protection and restoration in cities.

A robust green standard

The greening of cities is a major strategy to address climate change and loss of biodiversity in urban areas: vegetation helps coping with extreme weather phenomena and increasing it bolsters biodiversity. It is urgent to adapt our cities and this calls for implementing robust green standards in national political agendas. The question is now: what makes a green standard robust? While there is knowledge on green standards, the existing information is often partial and scattered across different sources. This leads to uncertainty and ambiguity. In this session we will discuss what a robust green standard is, guided by three questions: (1) What does being robust mean? (2) What criteria should a robust green standard comprise? (3) What can the implementation of a robust green standard mean in terms of monetary investment? To trigger an active discussion, a group of experts/speakers will address these questions based on two overarching through-provoking statements: (a) robust means being absolute and the quality of green is unimportant to that end (questions 1-2); (b) implementing a green norm is not feasible in monetary terms (question 3). Each expert will contribute to the discussion based on their expertise: green city, biodiversity, health, climate adaptation and governance.

Influencing bicycle parking behavior and the Dutch FietsParKeur bike rack quality mark

For years, the Netherlands, a pioneer in cycling mobility, has grappled with the nuisance of improperly parked bicycles in the urban landscape. This issue has become increasingly problematic for all parties involved, including cyclists, residents, and municipal public services. The policy regarding improperly parked bikes has incurred significant costs for municipalities, amounting to millions of euros. Two key elements contribute to this problem: Poorly designed bike racks and the (resulting) behaviour of cyclists who park their bikes. This presentation will address both aspects: 1. The Parking Facility/System Itself. We will explore the Dutch FietsParKeur bicycle racks quality mark. 2. Behaviour related to different parking systems. What process does a cyclist unconsciously go through before deciding how to park his bicycle? Functional and safe to use bicycle parking systems make an important contribution to the actual use. The importance of the location and accessibility of the parking facility is evident, but also by also including high-quality bicycle parking systems (racks), the willingness of the cyclist to use these, will highly increase. A well-functioning parking facility not only contributes to the increase in bicycle use, but also to the better functioning and attractivenesss of the public space in that area.

Urban ReLeaf in Utrecht: how residents of green deprived areas tackle urban heat stress with community management, technology and data.

Cities and citizens both have a key role to play in keeping cities resilient, liveable, and accessible for all. In the project ‘Urban ReLeaf’, funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme and the UK’s national innovation agency Innovate UK, six cities empower citizen groups and vulnerable communities to shape climate change adaptation and green infrastructure actions in their neighborhoods. In Utrecht, women with a migration background and young people from green deprived areas are taking part in data collection campaigns to understand heat stress in the city. Such approaches contribute to more comprehensive and reliable urban data ecosystems that will allow policy-makers together with citizens to develop more effective, tailored, city-specific strategies in the joint fight against climate change. This Fieldtrip XL will give participants the opportunity to go on a tour by bike and on foot to Urban ReLeaf neighborhoods in Utrecht. The tour will be guided by representatives of the municipality, local community leaders, and engaged neighborhood residents. The guides will share learned experiences for inclusive community engagement and highlight innovative citizen-powered data streams necessary for just and green urban transitions.

Equity standars for the living environment

Article 6 of the European Nature Restore Law aims to ensure a steady increase in urban green space and tree canopy cover in densely populated areas from now to 2050. The challenge is how to achieve this. In 2021, urban forestry expert Cecil Konijnendijk launched the 3+30+300 rule, a planning and design guideline aimed to support the development of greener and healthier living environments. In 2024. The Dutch Urban Tree Standard (Norminstituut Bomen) launched the term crown volume (linked to tree growing space volume). This was seen as filling a gap in better capturing the value a tree adds to its surroundings. This presentation will discuss an initiative to use these two initiatives as a foundation for developing a tree (crown) volume standard for the case of The Netherlands. Ways of connecting such a standard to different neighbourhood types and include it as a tool for planning and design will be presented.

Transformation of industrial and military sites into urban area in Ede.

The municipality of Ede is part of the famous region of Foodvalley. This region is the beating heart of the innovation of food, agriculture and green urban development. Government, commercial entrepreneurs and educational institutes work together to create new landscapes. One of the hot spots of this sustainable urban development is located on both sites of the new intercity railway station, which opened in 2024. At the south of the station factories of ENKA were transformed into a residential area. On the north side military bases were transformed into an urban landscape where working, living and recreation smells together. Near the station forces have combined in a World Food Centre. Altogether, the military bases, the factories of ENKA, the railway station and the World Food Centre are developing into a place where people can live and work, surrounded by nature, with the smell of history. And the train brings you in less than an hour to the cities of Amsterdam, Utrecht or Arnhem. The history of Ede is industrial and military. In the late 20th and early 21th century, industrial and military activities have been stopped and the sites were abandoned. Between the main industrial and military sites, the old railway station was outdated. Ede took the challenge for an integrated transformation of the industrial ENKA-site, the military sites ánd the railway environment. In the last decade the area has been transformed into a living and working area in which both nature and history are always nearby. Historic buildings have been given a second life. Military buildings have been given new urban functions. Chimneys of ENKA are landmarks of the industrial past. Natural elements have been fit in, much effort has been taken to re-use materials and new elements have been added. The chosen elements, including the trees have been selected to improve climate adaptivity and biodiversity. As a result, people live in harmony with nature, history and with each other in this re-created landscape.

From an urban living environment that no longer works......to one urban living environment that does not yet work

The importance of a healthy physical urban living environment. It is no longer a discussion. Based on cases submitted and pre-selected by the participants themselves, it is experienced, lived through and made concrete why a natural city lays the foundation for our Future Green Cities. Important themes such as adaptive, inclusive, healthy, attractive or circular; the foundation is laid by thinking from the principle of the natural city. What is that natural city and why is it necessary? The participant will see and experience the association with the themes mentioned. Soil, landscaping and water management are essential! But what exactly is it about managing soil, greenery and water, what should you pay attention to, what can you manage, how do you approach it and also, not unimportantly, do you tackle the consequences or remove the causes? 1. Not the beautiful ambitions, the beautiful views, but the ultimate effects/results are central! 2. There seems to be a constant conflict of interests, but that is actually the case! 3.

Climate fitness: decoding urban green dynamics

With the majority of the global population projected to reside in urban areas by 2050, urban green spaces, especially parks, will play a crucial role in improving the resilience, functionality, and overall quality of urban areas. By providing essential ecosystem services such as air purification, social cohesion, and health improvements, parks act as crucial catalysts for social-ecological transformation. Despite their importance, there is a lack of a multidimensional approach to assessing parks, beyond ecological factors. To address this research gap, the research team proposes the concept of climate fitness. While this term is uncommon in English, it holds significance in the German-speaking sphere. The lack of a uniform definition opens avenues for the development of a novel conceptual framework for evaluating the role(s) and potential(s) of urban parks as a climate strategy. The multifaceted aspects of climate fitness were explored through literature research, an expert survey, and a workshop, resulting in an intersectional definition and a preliminary set of criteria and indicators. By bringing in the notions of coping capacity, adaptability, transformability, and eco-harmony, the research team defines climate-fit parks as those that simultaneously create added value for the ecological, social, health, economic, and technical spheres of society.

Like Clockwork: Programming Park Activities in Rizal Park Luneta, Philippines

The concept of time varies across cultures and parks. Rizal Park Luneta has a life on its own: it operates at the break of dawn and closes late at night, wasting no time to showcase the unique Filipino identity to its people and the world. From dawn to late evening, various activities are designed and programmed, depending on the profiles of park goers entering the park at a given period of time. Senior citizens stomp their feet to Zumba sessions as the sun rises around 5:00 AM. The military and civilians raise and salute the Philippine flag that flies proudly against the sun at 8:00 AM. By 6:00 PM, the people gather around the Musical Dancing Fountain against the backdrop of the setting sun. The light rays from the free cultural concerts at the auditorium brighten the evening. In-between, several activities (both mundane and peculiar) take place in various pocket spaces of the park. Through this day-in-a-life documentary, a montage of time-based park activities will be shown . It aims to humanize Rizal Park Luneta, as it nurtures the Filipino way of life and deep reverence for the nation’s history and culture.

Cycling for greater independence and safer schools

Cycling is a beneficial activity that promotes physical and mental health for people of all ages. However, certain groups in Utrecht, despite the city's reputation as bike-friendly, face challenges in accessing the advantages of cycling. This includes children in special education who are less likely to experience the benefits of cycling. Dutch children are among the happiest in the world. Cycling allows them to reach destinations safely and gives them the feeling of freedom and independence. Despite their eagerness to cycle, obstacles hinder their ability to do so. Special education schools identified a notable increase in car and bus traffic around their premises during peak hours, raising concerns about the negative impact on the school environment. The presence of cars also created safety risks for children, leading more parents to choose car transportation as a perceived safer alternative.

Climate Fitness: balancing green dynamics in urban parks

This debate session, rooted in the insights of the Urban Climate Reactor (UCR) research team, dives into the critical topic of developing parks that are adaptable, climate-resilient, and equitable. Central to the discussion is the multifaceted concept of climate fitness in urban parks and its implications for societal health, economic vitality, technological integration, and ecological sustainability. Participants will engage in a lively debate on how to create green spaces that not only respond to current and future climate scenarios, but also actively contribute to climate change mitigation. The session will explore the pivotal role of UGSs in sustainable city living, focusing on their necessity to maintain essential ecosystem services and address inequality gaps. The following questions will guide the debate: “While UGSs are vital for sustainable cities, how can their development ensure social inclusivity?”, “Climate fitness in urban parks is key for future planning, but what strategies effectively balance this with the socio-economic realities of urban residents?”, and “How can the value-based concept of climate fitness be pragmatically integrated into urban planning processes?”. The session will utilize real-life examples from Vienna to ground the discussion in practical scenarios, offering tangible insights into the implementation and impact of climate fitness strategies.

The Climate Fitness Challenge

Participate in the Climate Fitness Challenge, a serious game crafted to enhance understanding of sustainable urban development, emphasizing the critical role of parks in bolstering urban resilience, functionality, and social cohesion. This interactive session, inspired by the findings of the Urban Climate Reactor research team, invites participants to delve into the intricate process of developing climate-fit parks. Climate fitness, a novel framework, is employed to evaluate the multifaceted roles and potentials of urban parks. Assuming the roles of urban planners, players will utilize resource cards to judiciously balance ecological, social, health, economic, and technological factors within a meticulously mapped urban landscape. Key decision-making will revolve around implementing blue and green infrastructure, developing park amenities, and integrating green technology, each choice significantly influencing the park’s climate fitness score. This immersive game experience is further intensified by real-world challenges such as extreme weather events, budget constraints, and community protests, compelling participants to adapt and refine their strategy. The climate fitness score, a comprehensive indicator, reflects the park’s impact on ecological sustainability, social cohesion, public health, economic viability, and technological progress. Set against the backdrop of actual urban settings in Vienna, the game presents realistic scenarios, offering an experiential learning opportunity.

Climate fitness through the diversity lens

The climate crisis, coupled with biodiversity loss, is considered one of the greatest threats in human history. The impacts of these challenges are not evenly distributed among all population groups. From environmental risks like floods and heatwaves to the challenges in climate adaptation and mitigation, the effects are unevenly distributed. Recognizing this disparity, our workshop introduces climate fitness – a comprehensive framework designed to assess and address the diverse impacts of climate strategies. Participants will gain insights from Vienna's "Urban Climate Reactor (UCR)" project and engage in an interactive role-play session. Embodying various socio-demographic groups like the elderly, children, and people with disabilities, attendees will assess urban climate strategies from unique perspectives. As mentioned in Harper Lee's ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb in his skin and walk around in it." This is the core of this workshop session. The workshop aims to convey the importance of intersectionality and the inclusion of all population groups, especially those who have been systematically discriminated against and excluded from the sustainability movement, climate policies, and urban planning.

A question of care: Exploring care as a critical concept for the future of the urban forest, the case of Parkstad (NL)

The session is meant to be a presentation of the following research: Advancing urban biodiversity and other ecosystem services in the light of climate change or more generally the Anthropocene, requires the cultivation of mutually beneficial relationships between humans and forest systems. More so, as temperatures continue to rise and weather events become more volatile, the future of the urban forest is increasingly dependent on human care interventions in terms of planning, design and maintenance. The Anthropocene, in short, reveals the deeply-rooted interdependence of humans and their environment. Here care emerges as a critical concept for developing “flourishing” relationships between humans and other than humans, which are capable of creating “liveable worlds”. By analysing a research by design project for Parkstad, The Netherlands this paper investigates how the concept of care can shape the design of urban forest spaces. This is done by categorising definitions and disseminations of care by Puig de la Bellacasa, as well as Tronto and Fisher into action perspectives for planning, design and maintenance of urban forests, which are then tested and specified through the territorial design exploration of Parkstad. From this starting points for a careful and caring cultivation of urban forests are compiled, which span multiple scales and facets ranging from conceptualisation and representation of the urban forest territory, to stakeholder engagement, forest maintenance and integration into the urban metabolism.

Kopurererua River - Not Just an Inner-City River Realignment

The hapū of Ngai Tamarawaho was a driving force behind a 2001 vision to reestablish their relationship with Tauranga’s Kopurererua Valley. Their vision set the framework for the design and development of a business-partnered project. The hapū vision for what became the ‘Kopurererua Valley Project’ included the revival of Ngai Tamarawaho’s connection with the Valley, changing it from a so-called wasteland marked by failed attempts at European cultivation and drainage subsidies, to a thriving 364 Ha waterway park, honouring Ngai Tamarawaho’s ancestors and providing contemporary spaces for people to reconnect. In essence, the twenty-year project culminated in the reintegration of hapū vision into the Kopurererua Valley, offering a model for other regions, city councils, and hapū. Significant achievements range from physical changes to the Valley to relationship strengthening. These include community relationship building and strengthening of the hapū’s relationship with their whenua, their local authority Tauranga City Council, infrastructural agencies, utility companies, and the community.

Biodiversity in focus

The project Biodiversiteit in Beeld inventories the biodiversity of the large allotment garden complex Ons Buiten in Leiden over five years. This has not been done at this scale before and is unique for the Netherlands. We found over 1500 species, under which threatened red list species. It has been shown gardens can be a suitable habitat for several species and ecological gardening could be an important step to strengthen biodiversity. However, many allotment gardens in the Netherlands are under threat and therefore showing their importance for biodiversity is needed. Furthermore, vulnerable species can only be protected when their distribution is known. During our session at FGC we would like to give a small presentation about the development of our project and to show our exciting results. Our presentation will give some hands-on information on how to initiate similar projects elsewhere. After the presentation we would like to go for a fieldtrip to an allotment garden complex in Utrecht, this complex is interested to initiate a similar project as we did. During the fieldtrip we will do a BioBlitz: we will try to identify as many species as possible within a set time limit. In this way we can excite people for the biodiversity present in cities and stimulate them to strengthen the biodiversity around them by sharing knowledge about the ecology of the found species.

Car-Free Grand Prix: How the Dutch Bike to Track

Each year on the first weekend of September, the tiny seaside village of Zandvoort hosts the entire world for the Dutch Grand Prix. And while a Formula One race is a somewhat unlikely place for an active travel revolution, for reasons of practicality and sustainability, the event’s 110,000 attendees have been prohibited from arriving by private car. Instead, organizers have implemented a detailed integrated mobility plan, which has resulted in an astonishing 98% of ticket holders arriving by foot, bicycle, or public transport—often in combination with each other—in 2023. This plan involves the creation of park-and-ride facilities outside the village, and tens of thousands of rental bicycles available for the last mile of the journey, along with the requisite pop-up parking spaces. Each year, the plan is evaluated and refined, with the lofty target of reaching a 100% sustainable mode share during the 2025 edition. The details of this integrated mobility plan are outlined in the new 16-minute documentary film, “Car-Free Grand Prix: How the Dutch Bike to Track”, produced by the Dutch Cycling Embassy and Mobian.

Mechelen: over 2 decades of integrating water in the city

For 25 years the city of Mechelen has been re-introducing water into its city centre. The historic 'Vlieten' streams are returning more and, more and more intrinsic, returning the city's original structure while adding adaptiveness. We look at how the approach is constantly evolving with the introduction of helophyte filters

Impactful city centre transformations

Can public space completely transform and uplift the culture and identity of a city centre? Yes it can. Illustrated with a selection of realised projects, like the widely-praised Hengelo city centre renewal, as well as Assen city centre we make the case that combining ambitious visions with intensive collaboration and decisiveness will lead to a transformation that results in residents falling in love with their own city once again.

Reimagining Public Spaces: Cultivating Meaning and Reconciliation

The session, "Reimagining Public Spaces: Cultivating Meaning and Reconciliation" delves into the transformative power of landscape architecture in creating spaces that resonate deeply with individuals and communities. We will explore three pivotal projects: the Oakland Museum of California's garden renovation, the International African American Museum's African Ancestors Garden in Charleston South Carolina, and Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center in New York. These case studies exemplify how rigorous research, community collaboration and thoughtful design can create outdoor spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also rich in cultural, historical, and emotional significance. The session will analyze how these projects achieved a harmonious blend of functionality, cultural representation, sustainability and community engagement. I'll discuss the strategies used to integrate local history, memory and culture into the landscape, creating spaces that stimulate the senses, evoke emotions, and invite interaction. The role of narrative imbedded public space design and how programming can enhance the user experience will also be a key focus, emphasizing how these elements contribute to the creation of spaces where people feel a strong sense of belonging and engagement.

• Green space management plans – Hyper local or city-wide?

Should our parks and green spaces in the “Future Green City” be managed through an overall city-wide green space strategy? Or should the approach be to create localized individual “Management Plans” -specific to each site and neighborhood community? We will structure a debate around this very question which has become a major debate between parks managers and politicians around Europe. The production of a site-specific management plan has been a requirement for the international Green Flag Award program since its inception in 1996 in England. Over 27 years later more than 2,500 applicants each year submit such a plan for their sites in 17 countries around the world. Critics and Green Flag Award advocates argue that parks and green spaces are intrinsically unique and therefore require highly site-specific adapted management plans. The city-wide believers claim that the way municipal services are delivered in modern times require a higher level view without any written ground level details. This question is also affected by increasing pressure on parks departments to make budget cuts and streamline management personnel. In fact, the Green Flag Awards own data shows a real-time fall in scores for park management plans over the past 10 years - which could be argued, reflects Local Municipality austerity measures across Europe. This could indicate that in many cases parks and green space departments have less time for managing and are simply maintaining as best as possible.

• Theory in practice - What makes a “good” park?

What makes a park good? What makes a park great? The Green Flag Award programme has been answering this question since its inception in 1996. For over 27 years the scheme has provided a standardised system of park quality assessment, now recognized in 17 countries around the world. In this “Urban Trail” style park visit, participants will get to put the Green Flag Award grading system to the test themselves, using an Utrecht park nearby the conference centre as an example. Michele Walde, Senior Training and Development Manager for the Green Flag Award will brief participants on how to use the “Site Quality Assessment” form, and advise how to apply the grading for each criteria. Individuals will then complete the form in real time using their mobile phones. The data submitted will be collated and presented back to the group once back in the conference centre. This will lead to a discussion of whether participants landed on similar or differing results, and whether there was overall consensus on the quality of the park. We expect this visit to last approximately 3 hours. So any spare time left over can be used by participants to continue the discussion about park quality standards, or visit the trade fair.

Community Co-creation and Co-management – the Key to Creating more Inclusive Parks

This session will explore the roles that community co-creation and co-management have played in creating more inclusive parks at two very different park sites, Tauranga’s Kopurererua Valley, and San Francisco’s historic Presidio urban national park. The hapū of Ngai Tamarawaho was a driving force behind a 2001 vision to reestablish their relationship with their traditional home, the Kopurererua Valley. By reviving the Ngai Tamarawaho’s connection with the site, it was transformed from a wasteland marred by failed attempts at European cultivation and drainage subsidies, to a thriving 364 Ha waterway park, honoring Ngai Tamarawaho’s ancestors and providing contemporary spaces for people to reconnect. In essence, the twenty-year project culminated in the reintegration of hapū vision into the Kopurererua Valley, offering a model for other regions, city councils, and hapū. For over 250 years, the Presidio served as a military base. In 1994, the national historic landmarked site because an urban national park in the middle of San Francisco. As an urban national park, the central focus of the Presidio is to create parkland that is inclusive and accessible to all, with a particular focus on communities that have traditionally been underrepresented in national park visitation. Creating a park for all that allows for unique access to the natural and cultural histories of the Presidio is a guiding principle of the Park’s restoration and interpretation. Community co-creation and co-management have played a critical role in transforming the Presidio from what was essentially a local park for the wealthy neighborhoods that surround the site into an urban national park site that welcomes and is loved by a diverse array of visitors.
