The Melbourne 2018 INTERNATIONAL PARKS AND LEISURE (IPLC) Congress in partnership with the Parks and Leisure Australia focused on addressing the pressing global impact and challenges that urban growth and density will have on our parks, overall wellbeing, climate, and sports and leisure. We outlined many of the challenges, but also addressed how we as a sector can comprehensively respond to ensure that our open spaces are protected, communities improved, and our lifestyles enhanced.
From the IPLC 2018 comes the Melbourne Statement. World Urban Parks developed this statement in response to the congress and lays out key principles in conjunction with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
