Climate change resilience, mitigation and adaptation are key features of city sustainability. The event will cover thematic areas ranging from horticulture to innovative technological solutions aimed at improving the efficiency and the management of urban green infrastructures. State of the art technologies will be addressed, considering transversal visions in which landscape architecture and environmental engineering meet the functional management of horticulture in the urban environment in order to maximise ecosystem service provision.
The goal is to offer a forum for discussion not only to scientists but also to entrepreneurs, practitioners and policy makers, where results and experiences will be shared and discussed. This international symposium will be a cluster event, including traditional scientific sessions, business sessions and training and research networking sessions.
During the conference oral presentations and posters, technical visits, workshops as well as discussion forums will address the main themes of the conference:
Cities and climate change
Smart horticulture for sustainable cities
Green infrastructures for more efficient ecosystem services
Designing and engineering greener cities: bridging visions
