We all know that learning is often complimented and improved through action, and the Uforest project will offer a programme of highly innovative opportunities to turn theory into practice. The participants will be able to consolidate their knowledge and, at the same time, expand their network with the ultimate goal of bringing 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 face-to-face 14-day specialisation programme on urban forestry. The course will be a recognised high-specialisation course. Our aim is to train students, experts and professionals and the programme will end with an “Urban Forestry Challenge” during which the participants will pitch their projects “against” each other.
Activity Working Package (WP): WP5-5.4 | Deadline: Dec 2023
Urban Forestry Workshops
This activity involves the development of the Urban Forestry Workshops. These events, combining technical seminars, debates and field trips on urban forestry, will be organised in different countries and languages. The events will be open to public officials, students and practitioners in the Uforest network.
Activity Working Package (WP): WP4-4.5 | Deadline: Dec 2022
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, and each event will be given maximum visibility through dedicated press hacking and communication activities.
