10:00 am - 11:00 am


Date: Wednesday 24 June 2020
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am (AEST)


In October 2019, Anthony and Richard were invited to the World Urban Parks International Congress in Kazan, Russia. Kazan, relatively unknown, is the 6th largest city in Russia and has long been a multicultural centre located on the Volga River and the Silk Road. Kazan is delivering a renewal program of over 300 urban spaces.

In addition to attending the World Congress, Anthony and Richard also visited urban parks in Moscow and St Petersburg.

In this session Anthony and Richard will outline learnings from the Congress, discuss what they saw of urban parks in Russia, and plan ahead for the next World Urban Parks Congress in Tirana, Albania. Tirana is another city undergoing parks transformations, in a process described by Mayor Erion Veliaj as "urban acupuncture".

Parks and Leisure Australia is a member of the World Urban Parks Association.

This webinar is being presented by the Vic/Tas Region Open Space Planners Network.
