City Parks Alliance is excited to announce our Call for Speaker Proposals for Greater & Greener 2024 in Seattle, June 21-25! Greater & Greener is where parks leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors; elected officials; design professionals; community and issue advocates; funders; and other innovators come together to explore the role of parks and recreation in creating more sustainable, vibrant, and equitable cities.

Our curated educational sessions and mobile workshops foster open and honest conversations about challenges and solutions and provide opportunities for cross-sector and peer networking to share best practices and innovations for building successful park partnerships.

Program tracks for the Seattle event are:

  • Parks and a Changing Climate
  • Equitable and Sustainable Park Funding
  • Inclusive Parks and Public Spaces
  • Parks, Recreation, Health, and Wellbeing

We will also prioritize proposals that address any of the following five themes as relevant to each track: Resilience, Data & Technology, Design Solutions, Community Engagement, and the Year 2020 (structural changes parks & recreation agencies and their partners have undergone in response to the pandemic and racial justice awakening).

We invite you to share your parks story with peers from around the nation and around the world at Greater & Greener 2024.

Submissions will be accepted until July 14, 2023.
