language and perception

What is it?

The 202020 Vision community has noted that there is a need to improve the image and perception of urban greening, particularly among council audiences.

To achieve this, we seek to find ways to overcome legacy issues relating to urban green space and better understand how we can resurrect poorly designed spaces, and avoid creating them in the first place.

 “Steering Committee members have spoken of the language of urban greening and its importance in informing discussion within their organisations. Some describe a shift where plants in all forms, although particularly trees, are thought of as assets rather than liabilities. This shift, however, is not universal”
