About the Conference “Greening Towards Urban Resilience”

Nature-based Solutions can support urban areas in responding and adapting to climate change. To do so efficiently, learning from Periurban Parks, working across city departments and communicate efficiently is essential. The different project partners of the programme have been working across these areas to lead the way in urban greening. This work, accompanied by expert interventions and field trips, await participants of the conference. Participation is free of charge.


At this final conference of LIFE UrbanGreeningPlans, we will bring together people from different disciplines to reflect on urban greening, sharing best practice case studies and working towards a common framework. To do so, we will take into account multiple scales and angles. We will consider a wide range of urban ecosystems, from urban forests, parks, blue and green corridors, to others. Furthermore, we will consider the actual contexts of climate change, rapid urbanization and social uncertainty.

Those are the questions we will answer during this high-level event.

During two days, Conference participants will enjoy a highly interactive programme. From the presentation of the different project actions in the cities of Athens, Barcelona, Brussels, Milan and Lisbon, to thought-provoking keynote speakers, the event will have no shortage of inspiration for decision makers and urban planners across Europe.
