Dr Digby Whyte, World Urban Parks CEO
Welcome to the first edition of World Park News for 2017. I hope you are all feeling refreshed after some vacation time.
To start the year, I’d like to focus on some of the avenues for you to get involved, including events, committees and other initiatives.
As members, your involvement and support is vital to our organisation. Through working together, we can champion urban park outcomes for city liveability, place-making, conservation and access.
Four new standing committees have been formed, making nine standing and regional committees in total. These committees are a great way to connect with international colleagues and work together towards our common goals, and with upcoming meetings for many of their working parties to get the New Year underway, now is a good time to get involved.
