29 October 2020 - How to make cities #GreenerHealthierWilder! Voices from around the world

Would you like to hear from people around the world who are making their cities greener, healthier and wilder? Join us online for a series of quick fire talks by inspirational people who are taking action.

Cities are full of millions of people who have ideas and projects to make life better. What if we shared those ideas more and inspired other people to do them too?

As part of Urban October and our campaign for 25 National Park Cities by 2025, we are holding a special series of online events on Thursday October 29th 2020. Via Zoom we are going to showcase people from around the world who are doing things to make life and where they live greener, healthier and wilder.

We will showcase diverse voices speaking on a wide range of topics. Stories might cover parkour, wildlife gardening, nature photography, walking, cycling, trees, climate action, parks and green spaces, green recovery, local volunteering, storytelling, arts and crafts, fungi, fitness, campaigning, skateboarding, community action… and many other things.

There will be three sessions during the day so that we can collaborate across timezones. Each session will be different.

  • Session 1: 8am UTC
  • Session 2: 2pm UTC
  • Session 3: 8pm UTC

This event is organised by the National Park City Foundation in partnership with World Urban Parks and Salzburg Global Seminar.

Do you want to be one of our voices from around the world?

Please get in touch if you have a story to share that could inspire others. You can be from any city across the globe and you will have 3 minutes to share it with the world.

What if you were one of our voices from around the world? What if your story inspired others?

Your contribution will be live via Zoom and be three minutes long. You’ll need to have a good internet connection and speak English. We hope future events will be in other languages too.

If you’d like to be one of our speakers, please fill in this form. We will confirm your slot by October 19th.


Every month - Join One of our Regular Monthly Open Meetings

Are you about to start a campaign to make your city a National Park City? Have you been working to achieve the status for some time already?

Join one of our regular monthly open meetings to be inspired and supported by people who are working to make their cities National Park Cities. We’ll be sharing our hopes and progress, exploring practices, answering questions and giving advice.

These meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month at 8am (London) and repeated at 5pm (London) so that people are able to join from across the world’s timezones.

The next meeting on 3rd September will have a special break-out focus on Community Involvement and Ownership.
