Bankside Urban Forest to feature in symposium at London's Garden Museum
Bankside Urban Forest is set to feature in a symposium being organised by The Garden Museum in London at the end of April 2014. As part of their Green Infrastructure Week (28.04.14-04.05.14) a series of events and activities focusing on raising awareness and sharing good practice of delivering green infrastructure are planned.
The work of Bankside Urban Forest will feature in an event: Public Space / Private Money - New Opportunities for Urban Green Spaces on the 28th April.
This symposium will focus on the changing possibilities of working with commercial partners in making green public (or quasi-public) spaces.
At a time when public funding is declining, commercial clients are a new source of investment and vision; case studies will include the Bankside Urban Forest and Borough Market, the Vauxhall Business Improvement District’s ‘Missing Link’ master-plan for a greener public realm for office workers and the residential community. Designers including Tom Stuart-Smith and Andy Sturgeon will share their experiences (good and bad) of working with commercial property developers.
Tickets £50 Garden Museum Friends, LI Members, Students, £60 Non-Friends.
