“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.”
– Arundhati Roy, The Pandemic is a Portal
An abundance approach surfaces the hidden potential in existing resources and helps us imagine new ways to build partnerships, attract resources, create park spaces and deliver more impact in city parks.
Often used in community settings and Indigenous teachings, abundance values collaboration over competition, love over fear, and new possibilities over old limitations.
Join Park People Sept 21-23 for a stellar virtual gathering where we'll work together to build an abundant future for Canada’s city parks.
