Urban Design with Nature

21 February 2018 - Sharing Good Practice (SGP) event

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 featured examples of integrated, multi-functional urban GI design and implementation at home and abroad. It provided the opportunity for participants to network with other industry experts and share experiences and knowledge of urban GI.
