Roundtable on Urban Green Space

Silva, C. (Participant)

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


I participated as panellist in this roundtable of discussion and presentations that gathered together approximately 25-30 scholars, practitioners and policy makers to examine some of the innovative urban approaches to combining nature, environmental processes and inclusive public culture that have developed in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. The discussion was structured around the three themes: Urban Biodiversity and Wastelands (exploring how spontaneous ecologies can be safeguarded); 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 Urban Appropriation Strategies (articulating how practitioners, researchers, artists and activists can remake and reclaim urban space).
