Shade is an increasingly important issue for local government and this is a must attend event for 2015.
The forum will highlight the elements of good quality and innovative shade (both natural and built) for parks, childcare, centres, sports grounds, pools and public spaces - and how it is best achieved.
This event will feature:
- international and local presenters highlighting new directions in planning for and designing shade.
- discussions on how to put shade and UV protection on the council agenda and ensuring it is embedded in policies across the built environment, health and social planning, and municipal public health plan areas.
The content has been designed for local government and is particularly relevant for health planners, social planners, environmental health officer, environment and sustainability officers, recreation and open space managers, urban designers, landscape designers, asset and infrastructure managers and early years managers.
The workshop is being organised as a special event within the Third International Conference on UV and Skin Cancer Prevention. It is a joint initiative of the MAV, the Victorian Government’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Cancer Council Victoria.
Although the event is being run as part of the conference, it is independent and can be booked through the MAV.
Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are included in the workshop registration.
