At the end of June of this year, we will be hosting an exciting international conference on "Urban Forests, Forest Urbanisms and Global Warming" in Leuven, Belgium.
You can read more about the program, its global and transdisciplinary character, and sessions on Science, Policy, and Design at: https://architectuur.kuleuven.be/urban-forests-forest-urbanisms-global-warm…. Registration can also be done through the website.
Central questions to be addressed include: What do we know about the mitigation and adaptation benefits of urban forestry? How can the climate benefits of urban forests be optimised through governance, planning, design and management? What integrative and innovative approaches can be developed, for example, in collaboration between (urban) forestry, urbanism, (landscape) architecture, ecology, sociology and other fields? What do the green and climate-resilient cities of the future look like, how are they actually made? How can large-scale tree planting and afforestation be embedded in sustainable and socially-inclusive urban forestry programs? Which new forms of forest urbanisms can be developed?
The event will take place in the beautiful and green university city of Leuven, an easy 15-minutes' train ride direct from Brussels Airport.
