Speakers announced for credit crunch parks event

The speakers at GreenSpace's Parks in the Credit Crunch conference have been confirmed.

The Parks in the Credit Crunch conference on 17 February will explore how to secure funding for parks and green space in an uncertain financial climate while utilising existing resources to the full.

Speakers at Parks in the Credit Crunch include Preston City Council's parks manager Matt Kelly, who will discuss the new Green Space Fund.

The Green Space Fund will encourage local businesses to invest in improvements to their local environment under corporate social responsibility and climate change agendas.

CABE Space research and futures adviser Helen Beck will discuss CABE's research into the asset valuation of parks and green space, and how this can be used to make an effective case for future funding.

Other topics explored at Parks in the Credit Crunch will include the value of effective volunteering, how to attract sponsorship in parks, and how to put together effective funding applications.
