Creating Collaborative Learning Networks for Park Leaders

City Parks Alliance was formed in 2000 as a forum for park leaders working in the urban realm at a time when people were moving back to cities but park conditions had deteriorated due to years of disinvestment. New forms of collaborative governance models were beginning to emerge that required park leaders to change practices--through public private partnerships—for urban park design, funding, programming and stewardship. Today City Parks Alliance remains the only nationwide membership organization in North America solely dedicated to urban parks. Its 300+ organizational members include park and recreation professionals, community and civic leaders, urban designers and planners, grant-makers and other advocates. CPA’s strategic objectives include Advancing Lead Edge Thought, Enhancing Member Capacity, and Informing Policy and Decisionmakers. World Urban Parks (WUP), established in 2015, represents urban parks and urban park issues around the world. WUP is a forum for the exchange of ideas on common environmental, social and economic challenges where urban parks, open space and recreation are critical solutions to these challenges. World Urban Parks has 3 key focus areas: 1) Advocacy - a global voice supporting the value and benefits of parks and the industry through science and unity; 2) Best Practices - World-Class communities, organizations, and professionals recognized for high standards and efficiencies through congresses, benchmarking, awards, and certification; and 3) Collaboration - resolving issues and increasing knowledge and capacity through diverse networks of colleagues and partnerships. WUP accomplishes it work by partnering with agencies and organizations - in current and emerging cities – around the world. In this session you will hear about CPA’s methods for on-line and in-person learning through the PARKXCHANGE program portfolio and ladder of engagement. You will hear about WUP’s partnerships and work being done to advance those partnerships and the urban park agenda around the world. We’ll also talk about how CPA and WUP are providing thought leadership within and beyond its membership on important emerging issues facing park systems, such as climate resilience, inclusive economic development, public health and emerging cities. Objectives: 1. Learn about strategic approaches in developing programs through a collaborative network for information sharing. 2. Learn about strategic partnerships to actively advance urban park initiatives. 3. Hear about specific opportunities that range from remote, online opportunities for learning and sharing, to intensive, in-person collaborative learning and networking experiences. 4.

Diagnosis of the 3rd Section of Bosque de Chapultepec as an input for the Master Plan

The 3rd section is the latest addition to the Bosque de Chapultepec and was built in 1974. Its characteristics and conditions are different in the 1st section, since they have ravines and stands that privilege the generation of services for the city and its inhabitants. This section has never been studied and for the preparation of the master plan of the 3rd section attention is paid to the inventory and diagnosis of its tree cover, the characterization of the sites that make up and the quantification of environmental services and the determination of its economic value through the i-Tree Eco program adapted to Mexico. The types of location were differentiated (ravine-plateaus-roads) and they are divided into four zones for operational purposes. Preliminary results indicate that there are more than 25,000 trees, of the other more frequent species are red eucalyptus, ash and casuarina. The preponderant vigor condition is moderately declining, however, the number of dead trees standing is very significant and therefore, the environmental services that generate the trees are not so considerable. The information gathered in the diagnosis-inventory-characterization was combined into a management program that guides the activities to be carried out on the tree cover and the soils in the short and medium term, as well as serving for the elaboration of the Master Plan of the 3rd Section .

Goals 1.- To promote the importance of the realization of diagnoses and inventories of the trees in the urban green areas, as basic inputs for the elaboration of management programs for the tree cover and for the master plans of the urban green areas. 2.- Exemplify the results that can be a report of a tree in an urban green area, with the others in the 3rd Section of the Bosque de Chapultepec. 3.- To promote the importance of the determination and quantification of the environmental services generated by the trees of the urban green areas and their economic value, to sustain a strategy that contributes to their protection, conservation and improvement.

Four decades industrializing street furniture is a good period to stop, look back and turning this ephemerid in a perfect occasion for a critique of our output from the very beginning up to the present and perhaps, hopefully, help us to understand the directions in which we are heading. In a Hyper-connected world with instantly available information, a sequential, descriptive presentation of our catalogued products is probably not the best way. That sort of information is already available to anyone interested in the subject via websites. Alternatively, we have thought about a selection of Highlights from each decade resulting in something that can be considered Celebration of this 40th anniversary, to appeal to the audience emotions and, for sure, add them to our own observations.

Parks as Equity Drivers

Parks provide public benefits including social cohesion, economic value, and city brand. This panel will discuss how parks are providing access to amenities, new green space, and alternative transportation options to all residents while simultaneously fostering balanced economic growth. It will examine right-of-way decisions and investments in linked projects. Precedents from elsewhere such as the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, the SoMa West Skate Park in San Francisco, and the Atlanta BeltLine will be discussed as well.
