Community Empowerment and Open Green Spaces (in Haringey, North East London and beyond...)
Wood Green Social Club
3 Stuart Crescent, Wood Green, London N22 5NJ
[5 mins. walk from Wood Green tube]
We will be looking at
- some of the history of the establishment and development of public parks and green spaces
- their potential as sites for empowering and creative community activities
- community involvement in management (especially with the rise of Friends Groups over the last 20 years)
- some of the new ideas on environmental sustainability and potential for food growing
- and how parks could be better run in the future by those who work in them and use them.
