5 core areas


The city

Cities are composed of elements that make them unique: pedestrian areas, recreational bicycle, open space and resilience are some issues that are related to urban park.

HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT

Did you know that parks bring many health benefits? Besides inviting us to physical activity, they are a place where we find ourselves face to face with nature. Green areas reduce the rates of depression, anxiety and work stress; they clean the air, improve the circulation of the wind and regulate rainfall patterns.

Design and Planning

What is the importance of design principles and planning processes for parks? In Congreso Parques you can find specific topics such as: playground areas, splash pads, dog Parks and many more, as well as information about intellectual and creative processes so that the design and planning of these spaces are a success.

ECONOMY AND USES OF PUBLIC SPACE

In addition to being spaces for recreation, parks boost the economy and create jobs. Successful models of administration, economic promotion and fundraising will be presented showing the great variety of ways in which a park can be sustainable.

PUBLIC FUNCTION AND CITIZEN PARTICIPATION

Urban parks need public officials committed with the best practices and sustainable processes alongside with the community. In this core area models to promote citizen participation and structures that improve the public service focused on urban parks will be presented.
