Annual General Meetings
2021 Annual General Meeting
It would be an understatement to say that it is an exciting time to be working in urban parks on a global scale. We have done quite a lot, yet the process has shown us that much more remains to be done. The world urban population will double from 3.5 billion to over 7.0 billion in the next 40 years. This means that half of the communities that will exist within the lifetime of our children have not been built yet.
This represents a magnificent opportunity as well as an enormous responsibility to support the development of parks and open spaces as critical elements in creating vibrant cities and healthy communities where all citizens can live healthier and happier lives.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) for World Urban Parks is being held electronically every August. The AGM is always held via an electronic survey so that all members will have over a week to participate at their convenience.
The AGM provides an opportunity for members to see, comment on and approve:
- the annual report of World Urban Parks for the year
- the audited financial reports for the year
- the approval of Board Appointments
- other items the Board needs to bring to membership as designated in the World Urban Parks constitution
