SUR Lab annual workshop: Public-private cooperative models for urban parks sustainable management

Urban park
Aula AS-01 | Via Roentgen 1 | Bocconi University | Milano

Urban parks play a key role in providing quality of life and urban sustainability, as they generate several ecosystem services such as improving air quality and carbon capture process, draining rainwater, enhancing microclimate, providing socio-recreational opportunities, and increasing aesthetic value.

The lessening of public budgets asks for innovative business models addressing urban park implementation and long-term management based on cooperative partnerships of public and private entities. 

On May 13th at 09.30 am, the SUR Lab team invites you to join the annual workshop "Public-private Cooperative Models for Sustainable Urban Parks Implementation and Management" in Bocconi.

The workshop intends to explore innovative business models involving several public and private actors, such as local administrations, park managers, real estate developers, citizens' associations, sponsors, and commercial bodies. 

During the event representatives of the Municipalities, public agencies, real estate and NGOs will discuss the relevance of innovating parks development and management in urban contexts with reference to specific best practices.

Furthermore, the SUR Lab position paper "Business models for the implementation and management of urban parks" will be presented during the Workshop.
