Connecting the Street Tree to the Forest – Strengthening Nature for Urban Living
Starting from the City Centre and the European district, delegates to EFUF2015 will gradually connect to the heart of the Sonian Forest. This year’s EFUF will focus on:
- Fragmented urban green infrastructure and its multiple function (ecological, recreation, climate change adaptation etc) and discuss strategic approaches to deal with this;
- Ways to re-connect urban green infrastructure using urban forestry techniques;
- Ways to re-connect citizens, stakeholders and local communities with urban green infrastructure and the urban forest;
- Innovative ways for financing urban nature;
- Building new networks and partnerships;
- Natura 2000 and the urban forest.
Dr Sander van der Jagt will present:
"Trees and Woods in Scottish Towns: Pressures and opportunities at local government level"
