Governance Policies

World Urban Parks champions urban park outcomes for city livability, place-making, conservation and access, and provides strong membership services by connecting, leveraging and supporting diverse membership across the international urban parks, open space and recreation community and allied sectors. 

World Urban Parks advocates strongly for improved park, open space and recreation outcomes in cities and has developed a range of policy positions.

Updated Privacy Policy

The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that World Urban Parks has appropriate practices and controls in place to manage membership information. This Policy will cover what information World Urban Parks collects, how the data is used, and how to inform World Urban Parks of a privacy issue.  

This Policy has been developed to be compliant with the European Union's (EU) Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (2018). The GDPR is to protect EU data collected by businesses and organisations within the EU, but also outside the EU for EU citizens.

Annual General Meeting 2018

The 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held online from 24th August to 31st August. The AGM is always held via electronic survey so that all members will have six days to participate at their convenience.

The AGM provides an opportunity for members to see, comment on and approve:

34 World Urban Parks members participated in the AGM and thus a quorum was achieved as required. 

Of those 34 responses, there was a balanced reflection of our membership types and regions. Read the full Report to see what members had to say about key services, key areas of participation and key areas of leadership.
