Roundtable on Urban Green Space

Activity: Consultancy typesContribution to the work of national or international committees and working groups

Description

I participated as panellist in this roundtable organised by the British Academy (London) aimed to examine innovative approaches in planning and design of urban green space. The activity gathered approximately 25-30 scholars, practitioners and policy makers to present ideas about the planning, design and implementation of urban nature, environmental processes, and inclusive public culture in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. The discussion was structured around three themes: (a) Urban Biodiversity and Wastelands (exploring how spontaneous ecologies can be safeguarded); (b) Aesthetics, Landscapes and non-Design (examining the tension between ecological rhetoric and pre-existing urban spaces of nature with high levels of cultural and ecological interests), and (c) Urban Appropriation Strategies (articulating how practitioners, researchers, artists and activists can remake and reclaim urban space).
