Living Links is an urban nature program working to retain and protect the natural values of Melbourne’s south-east by creating a web of high quality, interconnected green spaces.
By improving the connections between the many parks, reserves, open spaces, coasts, beaches, pathways, rivers, creeks and wetlands, Living Links vision is to create a world-class urban ecosystem where people and nature connect.
- A web of green. The region supports an interconnected network of high-quality natural spaces and associated recreational assets.
- People are connected to nature. The community values, uses and actively cares for natural spaces (and associated recreational assets) across the region.
- Urban nature is valued and resourced. Government and stakeholders see urban nature (and associated recreational assets) as a high priority for support and investment.
