Urban Forestry Days 23-24 March 2021

Tuesday, March 16 , 2021 1540

The European Forest Institute (EFI), the European Forum on Urban Forestry (EFUF) and the Horizon 2020 CLEARING HOUSE project invite you to two days of integrated activities on urban forestry (March 23-24 2021).

This on-line event is targeted at advanced practitioners, established researchers, sector leading policymakers and those wishing to learn of the latest developments in Europe and beyond. 

 

Day one is themed on integrated urban forest management with a focus on the ‘sustainable transition of cities’ and ‘urban forestry and the pillars of sustainability’.

In addition to keynote speakers, ‘a tour of management models’ with leading practitioners will cover different European bioregions and beyond. 

Participants will also be able to attend a ‘virtual fieldtrip’ with ‘live stream Q&A’ from the Kottenforst, a peri-urban forest near Bonn in Germany. 

 

Day two is themed on urban forests and health infrastructure. Keynote speakers will outline what medical science is telling us about forests as health infrastructure followed by a thematic workshop on ‘forests and urban greenspaces in pandemic times’. 

The second day will also see the launch of EFUF 2021; a decentralised networking programme running from March to May 2021 with many diverse events.
