A key advantage of being a member of World Urban Parks is interaction with colleagues around the world. This can be through conferences, technical tours, committees and other formal activity. But members can regularly contact each other directly to get together, ask advice, seek a research partner, find people experiencing similar issues or who have that policy they are looking for, find people who might like to form an informal working group, undertake a staff exchange etc. A contact list of members is circulated to all members and will be maintained on the website in a members-only area.
A resource database to share of best practices, useful policies will be developed in the members-only area.
