City Parks Alliance Summer Series 2021

June 14–25, 2021

Two weeks of interactive programming and conversations on the urgent issues facing cities

The COVID pandemic and resulting economic recession have challenged park and recreation staff and city budgets at a time when the need for equitable access to healthy outdoor spaces has never been greater.

Programming over the two weeks includes one or two sessions per day with recordings available to registrants. Conversations will focus on how cities are reckoning with racial justice, building an inclusive workforce, driving an equitable economic recovery, and leveraging parks and public spaces to connect people and create stronger, more resilient communities.

We’ll keep you posted on the latest announcements, speaker additions, and registration deadlines.
