Successful, sustainable development and management of urban green spaces requires integrated planning and maintenance. This is a process that involves varied input from multiple stakeholders — local decision-making bodies, experts, citizens, the business community, etc. How do we set such a process in motion and make it effective? How do we reach out to different actors and keep them involved? The community involvement model provides methods and easy-to-use tools for local authorities that will help to answer these and other questions.
