How can we make the most of the increasingly limited opportunities for green infrastructure in our urban areas? As demand for new homes rises, our towns and cities are becoming more densely populated.

Green infrastructure - such as parks, green spaces, trees, and sustainable drainage - are vitally important if our urban areas are to be attractive, healthy, liveable places. But finding the space for green infrastructure is becoming increasingly difficult.

How can we make the most of what we've got? How can we design and manage small areas of green infrastructure so that they contribute to larger, strategic objectives? And how can we fund this and make it happen? This conference will bring together leading practitioners from across the sector with new perspectives, ideas and inspiration.

Who should attend? This event is vital for anyone interested in creating economically successful, thriving places - councillors; local authority leaders and officers; landscape architects; planners; urban designers; community activists; academics; parks and leisure managers; members of LEPs and LNPs; architects; ecologists; environmental economists; and business leaders who recognise the importance of investing in place-making.
