Advancing the sustainable management of urban trees and forests
By providing a peer-to-peer learning opportunity for mayors, local stakeholders and experts, the webinar (4 October 2021 – 16.00-18.00 CEST) aims to discuss how urban forestry and green infrastructure can be integrated into urban planning, understand how trees can be sustainably grown in cities, and share experiences on innovative approaches to finance sustainable urban forestry.
Selected cities and experts will share examples and proven practices for addressing these challenges, and mayors, local stakeholders, and experts are encouraged to provide input and exchange in discussions. Anyone interested in urban forestry is welcome to register for the event and to follow the presentations and discussions.
The webinar is organized as part of UNECE’s “Trees in Cities Challenge”, a global campaign inviting mayors to pledge, restore, protect, and sustainably manage urban trees and forests. Mayors are invited to make pledges for actions through 2022 and to join the community of cities exchanging experience as part of their participation in the Challenge.
