Parks & Greenspaces: Webinars, Roundtables and Discussions
View this email in your browser
The work DeptfordFolk does with your support is more relevant than ever. Recently local parks and green spaces have played a vital role in supporting people's mental and physical health.

The new benches, bins, paths, trees, ponds and facilities we have delivered have meant our parks have coped with the increased use.

Our success and activities have attracted attention beyond Deptford. We have been invited to share our experiences and learnings at webinar events.

All events are FREE. 
Get involved.

Green Cities Webinar:
Should communities have a right to green space?

October 15th: 3.30pm - 5pm Register Here

Our Chair, Trina Lynskey will join Caroline Lucas MP and Helen Griffiths, CEO Fields in Trust to explore the idea that all communities should have a right to green space. Ideas first proposed by Caroline Lucas in May 2020 in ‘Green Steps to Better’.

The webinar will explore what a ‘right to green space’ might mean; how it could be used to make the distribution of green spaces fairer; and what it means at a local level. 

15th October 3-5.30pm. 
Free to attend. Register here.

Sustrans London #StreetTalk:
How can London become a 20-minute city?

November 4th: 6.30-8.30pm Register Here
We've undertaken a lot of engagement activities with Sustrans for DPLN over the last few years.

DeptfordFolk Chair has been invited to talk about 20 minute neighbourhoods with Matthew CarmonaAmy FosterBen Taylor & Ami Udeshi

London could be a city where most of our needs - from shops, schools, green spaces, pubs, doctors, dentists and playgrounds - are within a 10-20 minute walk. But this needs thriving local town centres and safe walking/cycling routes.

4th November 6.30-8.30pm. Free to attend. Register here.

Future of London Roundtable:
Parks and green space – does everyone feel welcome?

September 29th: Available as webinar
How can public green space help improve our mental & physical health & increase social cohesion? On Tuesday Sept 29 DeptfordFolk Chair and London Green Space Commissioner, Trina Lynskey, spoke at a Future of London round table discussion on parks and equalities. The discussion is available online HERE.
It's fantastic to know that the work we have been doing here in Deptford to improve parks, green spaces and access has been noticed further afield.

There a many great individuals, organisations and community groups who operate around the area who all do great things. 

If you are thinking about getting involved in your community there are great opportunities to work with amazing people.
