2017 KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Douglas Blonksy, President/CEO of Central Park Conservancy

World Urban Parks Europe Region is partnering with Wirral Council for the World Urban Parks European Congress at Birkenhead Park from 14-21 October 2017.

The Congress provides an opportunity for members to become inspired, share knowledge and form and maintain key contacts with people involved in parks, open space, recreation, culture and related disciplines and interests from across the globe as well as see initiatives in the host city.
It acts as a forum for the exchange of ideas on common environmental, social and economic challenges where urban parks are part of the solution.
Congress also includes a World Urban Parks day for board, committee and working party meetings and workshops where members can meet face to face.
