The pivot toward parks

October 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The pivot toward parks: How can we sustain creative activation of our public spaces beyond the pandemic?

COVID-19 showed us how space, resources and power can be reallocated to create new possibilities for our parks and public spaces.

Community-led projects have helped parks pivot toward serving food security, active transportation, arts and local businesses – like never before.

What are the practical implications of reimagining parks’ role in communities? What systems do we need to reimagine in order for us to build parks back better? This webinar will tackle these big questions in a session to get communities excited to collaborate with city staff in a new vision for park activation.

The panellists:

  • Sabina Ali, Executive Director at Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee
  • Sarah Common & Alice ‘Ali’ Kenny, Hives for Humanity Society
  • Leslie Campbell, Senior Coordinator, Special Projects; FoodShare
  • Rebecca Till, Environmental Stewardship Coordinator at Vancouver Park Board
