Nature strips, urban canopy or pocket parks – they’re desirable to most people. But ensuring they become part of urban life requires collaboration and clear guidelines.
The Green Building Council of Australia and collaborative impact initiative Greener Spaces Better Places (previously 202020 Vision) have teamed up to produce What’s The Story – a guide to helping people working in the built environment influence more liveable outcomes.
“Plants and trees,” it begins, “They can make a development amazing, but it’s not as easy as just designing them in. You need to bring all your stakeholders along on the journey.”
This guide uses real world examples to outline the barriers you may come across and show how some “green” developments solved these challenges, by knowing how to tell the right story in the right way.
