Annual Conference 2021
Midlands Green Heritage
Our 2021 Conference was held on Thursday 30th September, at Century Theatre, Snibston Colliery Park, Coalville, Leicester.
The Midlands has a wealth of green heritage with over £100 million invested in the region by National Lottery Heritage Fund. The East and West Midlands also has 330 Green Flag Award winning green spaces and many parks and gardens listed on the National Heritage List for England.
This conference brought together government representatives with national leading green space and heritage organisations to explore the vital role that green heritage such as parks, play in our post lockdown society. Conserving and managing landscapes, features, buildings, structures, wildlife and flora and making them accessible for communities is at the heart of the work of the parks professional. Our experts shared current national strategy, best practice, and workshops will provide practical opportunities for delegates to apply policy to their own space.
