We all know that learning is often complimented and improved through action. For this reason, Uforest offers a programme of highly innovative opportunities to turn theory into practice. The aim is to allow participants to consolidate their knowledge and, at the same time, expand their network to bring their entrepreneurial dream closer to reality.
How? By joining us in the following activities that will be implemented during the final year of the project.
Innovation Programme & Challenge
A 14-days Innovation Programme on urban forestry addressed to students, professionals, and experts. The course will be a recognised high-specialisation course and it will end with an “Urban Forestry Challenge”. In the Challenge, participants will have the opportunity to pitch their projects “against” each other.
Activity Working Package (WP): WP5-5.4 | Deadline: Dec 2023
Urban Forestry Workshops
Urban Forestry Workshops combine technical seminars, debates on urban forestry, as well as field trips. These events are organised in different countries and languages. The Workshops are open to public officials, students and practitioners in the Uforest network.

Urban Forest Planting Campaign
The 4 winning projects of the “Urban Forestry Challenge” will support WOWnature in Europe’s first simultaneous planting of 4 urban forests in Milan, Brasov, Barcelona and Dublin. Each event will be given maximum visibility through dedicated press hacking and communication activities.
