The roundtable, which follows on from the Horticulture Week-organised events that led to the creation of The Parks Alliance, will look at how to continue to build the new voice of UK parks and how to bring together park leaders to discuss the various challenges and opportunities for public parks.
Those who attend the event - being held at the new Library of Birmingham on 8 May from 10am to 4pm - will hear updates from the Heritage Lottery Fund on its upcoming major report on the state of UK parks and from innovation charity Nesta on the Rethinking Parks programme.
Members of The Parks Alliance transitional board will lead discussions on the vision, funding, focus and communications strategy for the organisation, alongside workshops on connections between health and park policy, what people need from their new parks organisation and examples of innovations in delivering parks, including in Birmingham.
The Parks Alliance transitional board chair Mark Camley said: "The leadership roundtable is an opportunity to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities for parks and continue to build The Parks Alliance as the voice of UK parks, representing the people and organisations that create, maintain, invest in and use the public green spaces at the heart of British life."
