What is it?

Simply put, we need to design more spaces and design them better.

202020 Vision partners have suggested that there is a need to increase technical awareness and capabilities related to urban greening – things such as a firmer understanding of urban canopy coverage, species selection, design and green space maintenance.

The focus on creating better green space ensures that it is made accessible and loved by all of the community. Another issue that became clear was the way in which different types of green space is valued such as the perceived value of bushland by the community in comparison to playing fields. 

To overcome this issue, we seek to share the most common knowledge gaps and put forward examples of how the problems have been successfully overcome through various approaches including pilot programs, trials and the creation of resources. 

"Some problems are good ones. Success can be patchy."
