In Conversation with Annette Richards - How Parks and Open Spaces Play a Role in Health and Well-being, and How Cemeteries Can Be Linked to This.

Parks Week, from the 6-14 March is about hundreds of organisations across Australia and New Zealand acknowledging the vital role parks and open spaces play in creating liveable cities and thriving communities. The next guest in our “In Conversation with…” webinar series, Annette Richards, Parks & Open Spaces Program Manager at Aotearoa, will be joining us to discuss how spending time in our parks and open spaces (including cemeteries) can positively influence our wellbeing. 

Join us for a fascinating 45 minute webinar (30 mins of discussion and 15 minutes question/answer time) to find out more about the benefits of green urban open space, the growth and social injustice issues we face today, the problems and opportunities we are presented with and how cemeteries fit into all this.
