About this Event

FUTURE PARKS ACCELERATOR PROJECT

In 2019 Birmingham won a place on a new initiative called the Future Parks Accelerator Programme and became one of only eight places across the UK selected by the National Trust (NT), The National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) and Ministry for Communities, Housing and Local Government (MCHLG) to take part in its ground-breaking Future Parks programme.

THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT

1. Promoting a step-change in how people engage with their parks to maximise public benefit, local potential, and innovation.

2. Enabling new cross-sector partnerships that bring together knowledge and expertise from outside the traditional parks sector, embedding new skills.

3. Catalysing and blending new sources of funding to enable diversified and sustainable business models that are attractive to new donors, funders, and investors.

4. Adopting a systemic approach so that a whole place’s portfolio of public green space is protected and enhanced, delivering a fair, quality, and free service to all.

WHY DO UK’S PARKS AND GREEN SPACES NEED AN ACCELERATOR PROGRAMME?

Whether our green spaces are parks, allotments, nature reserves, country parks, public

open spaces, part of our home, cemeteries, wildlife corridors, woodlands, playing fields, community gardens, the bit of grass at the end of the road or two planters greening a grey street, their importance has always been recognised by the individuals that use them. But over recent years the funding available for the development and care of green spaces has been reduced. What can we do over the next 25 years to turn this around.

Birmingham’s parks and open spaces provide residents and visitors to Birmingham with a range of services and benefits that go far beyond what is easily visible. The Future Parks Accelerator Project for Birmingham – “Naturally Birmingham” is trying to make the invisible or hidden services and benefits – visible to those that need to see them. Join us to find out what we have learnt so far, what the plans are going forward and how you can help shape design and delivery over the next 25 years.

Parks need People and People need Parks.
