LIFE URBANGREEN at the European Forum on Urban Forestry
Event: European Forum on Urban Forestry, Krakow, Poland | 24th – 26th of May 2023
How can we preserve urban forests from droughts and give value to the benefits these areas provide for better climate adaptation in cities?
These topics will be covered during the European Forum on Urban Forestry (EFUF) by Paolo Viskanic, CEO of R3GIS, bringing on stage the LIFE URBANGREEN project experience with a network of Polish and Italian partners.
Within the LIFE URBANGREEN project, the GreenSpaces digital platform was developed to improve management of green areas, taking into account environmental parameters. Green areas are no longer understood under a mere ornamental perspective but their environmental value in city management strategies must be considered as a matter of urgency.
The event is happening in Krakow, Poland, from the 24th to the 26th of May 2023. If you will be also present at EFUF, take part in the LIFE URBANGREEN scientific paper presentations!
