Movers & Shakers are excited to be hosting the launch of the much anticipated #ParkPower project. Covid-19 has focused us all on the value of communities and the role of green spaces. Both have been transformed from ‘nice-to-have’ into critical resources. During the summer, the London Collective have been crowdsourcing opinions from Londoners about their parks using the Commonplace platform – asking people what they value about them and what they would prioritise in the future. With over 3,500 responses from people living in every London borough, they have built up an extraordinary picture at a defining moment. At the same time people’s perceptions of the value of green spaces has increased, so have the pressures they are under, whilst their budgets and resources have come under increasing pressure too.

As a virtual network of built environment experts and creatives, the London Collective have developed conclusions, recommendations and design proposals based on the feedback from the public which will be launched at this event. The aim is to help local authorities make the best use of their limited resources and to reimagine the future of London’s green spaces as places to exercise, socialise, relax and enjoy in safety. The project is a collaboration between a diverse group of organisations that share one thing in common, a deep interest in the future of London’s green spaces. Joining the City of London Corporation, who own parks and commons from Hampstead Heath to Epping Forest, are the urban design teams of the London Collective and Dar Group, Siemens Smart Infrastructure, London National Park City, Commonplace and the mental health charity the Frank Bruno Foundation. We are hoping to have some introductory words from Frank Bruno himself, a tireless campaigner for mental health issues and one of this country’s great sporting legends. This event is open to anyone and free to attend.
