Urban Design with Nature

Integrating multi-functional green infrastructure (GI) into urban design, planning and delivery offers a range of sustainable, future-proof solutions and benefits for people and nature.

Green infrastructure helps our urban areas be more resilient and adapt to climate change, reduce energy consumption, mitigate flooding, and improve air quality.

These nature-based solutions promote active living, facilitate health and well-being, provide homes for wildlife, and transform our towns and cities into more enjoyable, attractive places to visit, live, work and play in. 

This event will explore a range of forward-looking policy, strategic, and project-level approaches and expertise across a range of themes including:

  • Economic drivers for urban GI
  • Conditions for good integrated GI design
  • Integrated GI in master-planning
  • International and UK case studies
  • Urban GI and city planning
  • Adaptation and retrofitting
