Abstract or Description:

This paper presents four projects where design practice is applied to address the challenges of engaging communities in the maintenance of Blue-Green Infrastructure (BGI). The design projects were initiated by the Royal College of Art in partnership with Enfield council, UK. The aim was to develop service propositions that encourage shared ownership of Broomfield Park between local communities and the council. These projects demonstrate the relevance of design practice in developing urban resilience through BGI. When considering BGI as a ‘wicked problem’, design practice demonstrations its potential in fundamentally transforming the traditional way in which public services are designed and implemented.
