Introducing Greener Spaces Better Places, the new identity for 202020 Vision, which advocates making Australia’s urban areas the greenest in the world. As Australia's cities, towns and suburbs grow, so should their greenspaces.
202020 Vision launched in 2013 and since then the program has brought together over 7000 organisations and individuals to form the world’s biggest network of greenspace champions. The aspirational goal of 20 percent of greenspace by 2020 also generated a vast amount of research, advocacy, awareness and actual plants in the ground.
WHAT IS HAPPENING NEXT?
As 2020 approaches, Australia's urban areas are facing big challenges and opportunities. To meet these, Greener Spaces Better Places will be focusing on density, climate change, and liveability.
This will include a strategic focus on the 'race for space', as well as the urgent need to transition to water sensitive cities and understanding species survival projections in a warming climate.
As it has for the past six years, the program will continue to be led and informed by the network to detail these future challenges and opportunities and provide the practical tools and support to make it happen.
