URBIO Conference: 3-5 December 2020 INTEGRATING BIODIVERSITY TO THE URBAN PLANNING AND DESIGN PROCESS
 

We are also pleased to let you know that Humboldt University (Berlin, Germany) has agreed to be the host of our coming URBIO Conference 2020. We would like to particularly thank our new Advisory Board members from Humboldt University, Professor Dagmar Haase and Dr. Diana Dushkova for their support and agreeing to host our URBIO conference in Berlin.

The theme of this conference is integrating biodiversity to the urban planning and design process.  Our growing cities, their future health and prosperity directly depends on the integrity of urban planners, architects and landscape architects. In most cases of urban ecology research, we are having deal with already created urban landscapes. The goal of this conference is to exchange conceptual ideas and results of theoretical and practical applications. How can urban ecologists make stronger connections to the planning of our cities and participating in architectural and landscape design process at different scales: from a Master plan to a park or a neighbourhood, or urban forest or private garden? How urban ecologists can be more actively involved in the interdisciplinary teams in the city’s administration and work in close connections with citizens fulfilling goals of protection and reinforcing urban biodiversity?
 

We are looking forward to receive your feedback on the main theme and ideas about sessions. The Conference webpage will be opened at the beginning of January 2020.
 

We wish to all of you a very happy holiday season and New Year. Thank you for your passion for urban biodiversity and support of URBIO.

 

Very best regards,

Maria Ignatieva and Charles Nilon, URBIO Presidents
