CLEARING HOUSE - Urban Forests as Nature-based Solutions (introduction to the H2020 project)
Urban forests, as well as parks and trees in public and private spaces, play an important role in addressing environmental, economic and social challenges. We will introduce the variety of “services” urban forests provide to cities and their inhabitants in four different world regions (from Barcelona to Beijing). You will learn about activities taking place in Bonn (the European Forest City 2020). Finally, we will focus on examples of how local governments work together on urban forestry by integrating local stakeholders as part of the CLEARING HOUSE project.
