The Impact of Networking

The Great Urban Parks Campaign is an innovative collaboration between SUFC members National Recreation and Park Association and American Planning Association. Supported by JPB Foundation funding, this nationwide initiative is deploying green infrastructure in local parks to improve the environment and enhance social wellbeing in underserved communities. The NRPA-APA partnership was fostered by both organizations’ membership in SUFC. With its unique convening power around a central issue—urban forestry—at the heart of community vitality and resilience, the Coalition provides rare opportunities for diverse organizations to discover ways to advance interrelated goals.
