About the event

Tuesday 29th October 2019 09:00 to 16:15

A one-day symposium, showcasing the use of the latest technology in green spaces. Fascinating sessions covering topics surrounding technology, food, environment and access; plus a presentation given by key note speaker, Mike Hardman from the University of Salford.

The value of green spaces in cities is increasingly recognised for our health and for the environment. In the age of smart cities, technology can play a role in the management and use of such spaces. Whether it be digital technology to measure the use of our parks, online tools to calculate the productivity of our allotments, community gardens and orchards, or the development of new methods of food growing and food waste use, the harnessing of new technological approaches to activity in these spaces is gaining momentum.

This event will bring together those involved in the use of technology across a wide range of green space related projects and activities, including parks, heritage spaces, community gardens, orchards and allotments to highlight the value and application of a wide range of technology in their management, access and operation.

Session topics include:

  • Technology and urban agriculture – from urban agriculture and urban anaerobic digestion to aquaponics.
  • Parks & green spaces – how apps and social media can improve access and understanding.
  • How technology can benefit community groups – the impact on community gardens, parks and green spaces.
