Trees for Liveable Cities: Delivering Effective Green Infrastructure – Friday 21st February 2020
The Institute of Australian Consulting Arboriculturists Committee invites you to join them for a one-day forum on 21 February 2020 at the Harold Park Community Hall in the Tramsheds, Sydney, New South Wales.
Trees for Liveable Cities: Delivering Effective Green Infrastructure is a forum that will highlight the benefits and challenges of green infrastructure and consider how arborists, planners, architects, landscape architects, developers, engineers, urban designers, politicians and the general community can actively contribute to improving urban forest canopy.
The Australian Government, in announcing its Cities Agenda in 2015, recognised green infrastructure as a key component for liveable cities. In 2018, the 1st World Forum on Urban Forests, an initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, issued a Call for Action. The Call for Action noted that urban forests help attain many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including making cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Also in 2018, the NSW Government announced a goal to achieve 40% urban forest canopy over Greater Sydney by 2030.
We look forward to seeing you there!
