Session Description
For greener, healthier and more resilient cities, we need to integrate nature into the neighbourhood. But how do we do that in ways that are meaningful and inclusive? How can architects, urbanists, ecologists, urban foresters and others work together on creating biodiverse urban environments. What are some of the opportunities but also challenges? This session discusses some of the possible answers, based on experiences from urban ecology, urban forestry, and other fields. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences with successfully making nature.
