The value of green spaces in cities is increasingly recognised for our health and for the environment. In the age of smart cities, technology can play a role in the management and use of such spaces. Whether it be digital technology to measure the use of our parks, online tools to calculate the productivity of our allotments, community gardens and orchards, or the development of new methods of food growing and food waste use. The harnessing of new technological approaches to activity in these spaces is gaining momentum.

On 29 October 2019 the Social Farms & Gardens and University of Kent event will bring together those involved in the use of technology across a wide range of green space related projects and activities - including parks, heritage spaces, community gardens, orchards and allotments - to highlight the value and application of a wide range of technology in their management, access and operation. This event is part of ‘FEW-meter’, an international project funded by the Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI) Food-Water-Energy Nexus.

The day will include sessions covering topics surrounding technology, food, environment and access; plus, a presentation given by keynote speaker, Mike Hardman from the University of Salford.

29 October 2019 9am - 4.15pm
St Luke's Community Centre, London EC1V 8AJ
