Designing Green Cities – Forest Urbanism

Last year, we organised a successful lecture series on designing green cities. This year, we are continuing this successful formula. In autumn 2023, we will organise a series of three lectures with once again with engaging, international speakers.

This lecture series offers designerly perspectives on greening cities and bridges theory and practice in landscape architecture, urban design, urban forestry and urban ecology. The series addresses the integrative and exploratory capacities of design through illuminating discourses that take the landscape as basis to create healthy, climate proof and socio-ecologically inclusive cities. Speakers from practice and academia exchange ideas and showcase practical applications of landscape-based urbanism, forest urbanism and ecological urbanism.
