202020 Vision: greening Australian cities together24 January 2018
The entire horticultural industry of Australia cooperating in 202020 Vision and greening all Australian cities. This is quite ambitious as 202020 Vision wants to expand Australian urban green space 20% by the year 2020.
202020 Vision started in 2014 and has come a long way. The greatest achievement is probably the awareness it has created. Millions of Australians have come into contact with the ideas behind creating more urban green space. Millions of them are now convinced that more urban green space is the answer to many ecological, economic and social problems. It helped the flower and plants industry be more relevant to society. It set an example for the world about how to green your urban environment together.
Governmental and private organisations and individuals from the green industry work together to make their initiative succeed. They researched why they should green their cities and how to accomplish this.
They used their network to collect and disseminate practical information on every aspect of expanding urban green spaces. What plants can you use where? How about soil and composting, about overcoming barriers to improving a park, about talking with green industry professionals in their own jargon. But they also deliberated how to create an urban forest and a community action plan.
202020 Vision is showing the world what the value of green can be by using one of the industry's best elements: cooperation.
