This column welcomes new members to World Urban Parks, provides information on membership renewals, and gives a progress report on committee and working group activity.
As World Urban Parks begins its second year, it’s a great time to join the international community of cities, organisations and individuals that champion city liveability, place-making, conservation and access in the parks, open space and recreation sector, and who are ready to help each other. World Urban Parks works with members to provide congresses, working parties from Good Practices to Applied Research, professional certification, advocacy and support, partnerships, and networking. For the first two years all members are considered to be foundation members, and from 2016 an organisation membership now also allows unlimited staff to join as professionals for free.
Existing members are welcome to renew your membership online, entering only the required information to identify you and your membership category.
