Mantova 2018

From 28 November to 1 December 2018, the 1st World Forum on Urban Forests brought together over 600 representatives of national and local governments, academia, NGOs, international organizations and private sector from more than 70 countries, to discuss the benefits of urban forests and trees. Over 140 presentations made in plenary and parallel sessions provided a rich overview of the benefits that urban forests bring for sustainable economic growth, health, environmental conservation, social cohesion and public involvement. In addition speakers presented inspiring practical examples of urban green planning, design and management in both large and small cities around the world.  The technical and scientific quality of the programme was overseen by the international scientific committee, headed by Stefano Boeri, architect and urban planner, and Cecil Konijnendijk, professor of urban forestry at the University of British Columbia.
