“Mettere Radici”, conference on urban green in Tuscany

The quality of urban green and the kind of plants in the city stand as increasingly topical issues, which are object of continuous in-depth analysis. It has been discussed in Tuscany, during the early-July conference “Mettere radici: benefits, risks and management of the urban green”, organized by Tuscany Region, Tuscany Anci and the Foundation for Climate and Sustainability, at the Florence School of Agriculture. Topics included biohabitat, urban gardens, parks and landscape, to define problems and prospects about the design of green areas in the cities, reflecting on benefits for the environment and citizens. Administrators, technicians, professionals and academics discussed about a more and more relevant field for Municipalities and communities.

The conference was also an opportunity to introduce the “Guidance on the planting of trees in the urban centres”, by Regional Councillor Federica Fratoni, and Rosa de Pasquale’s document “Urban Green: goals of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development”, from Italian Alliance for Sustainable Development, and finally Alessio Fini’s "LIFE URBANGREEN": measurement of ecosystem green services in two European cities – preliminary results), from Milan Polytechnic.

They are very important contributions, that will fall under the overview of projects which are recorded and analyzed by VEG-GAP project.
