The Sino-European H2020 CLEARING HOUSE project<http://www.clearinghouseproject.eu/> which uses urban trees and forests as a means to improve living in cities in both Europe and China, opened a new stream of research & communication on urban forest and green-spaces during the Covid-19 pandemic. This communication stream consists of a blog series<http://clearinghouseproject.eu/category/blog/>, a survey<https://vub.fra1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5bSsVfI1g1VgI7j> and short expert interviews.
IUFRO members are welcome to contribute their story during Covid-19 through blogs, photographs or short stories. An introductory blog post for inspiration is available here<http://clearinghouseproject.eu/2020/04/30/trees-urban-forests-and-green-spa…>.
Furthermore, we invite you to complete our survey on green space & urban forests during Covid-19 here.
We are also looking for experts on green space management and urban forests for short expert interviews to be published on our website. If you know someone who is interested, please get in touch with Dennis (dennis.roitsch(a)efi.int).
The CLEARING HOUSE project is coordinated by the European Forest Institute (EFI) and funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program under Grant Agreement 821242. Some Chinese partners participate through their own funding.
