A collaboration between Greener Spaces Better Places and Living Melbourne
As anyone working in the urban greening space will know all too well, there’s no shortage of information, tools, resources and case studies out there that can help you to plan, manage, protect and enhance green cover.
The trouble is, however, this information is often disparate and incomplete – making it difficult to access the most appropriate tools, resources and best practice examples.
That’s why we've collected these existing materials together – including tools, guides, publications and case studies – and curate the best of them in a single place: right here, in the Urban Greeners' Resource Hub.
This Hub has been curated following consultation with a panel of urban greening implementation, research and technical experts from across Australia, and we gratefully acknowledge their support and input.
Know about a resource that you believe should be considered in further iterations of the Hub? Please get in touch.
Smart Green Cities is a collaborative hub connecting industry, government, researchers and community to create liveable urban environments by inspiring change through evidence-based problem solving.
This research project was tasked with looking at tools and methods available around the world, and currently used in Australia, for mapping, monitoring and reporting on urban green space – as well as investigating the areas relating to urban green space that stakeholders such as local councils, landscape architects and others are interested to see reporting on. The project developed a blueprint for a potentially nationally-consistent urban green space decision-support framework.
