To develop high-quality urban forestry “next practice” solutions, we need to learn from current good practices, combining the expertise and knowledge of urban foresters, urban landscape planners, economists and businesses, communication and ICT specialists.
Through research and training needs assessments and stakeholder analysis, our team will develop high quality professional learning materials such as factsheets and blueprints, and help define online courses, workshops and practical training activities.
The following section, which is continuously updated, provides access to our resources (reports, case study factsheets and the EU Strategy and lobby document on Urban Forestry) and our online training course. Uforest is just taking off, so for now, you can have a look at our materials list and discover what we are, and will be, working on.
If you want to stay up-to-date on Uforest and our related fields and discover the new materials subscribe to our newsletter and to our Facebook page!

We are interested in urban forestry solutions, with a special focus on Europe, that either use an innovative mix of technologies, efficient and creative participatory and engagement techniques, that have activated successful public-private partnerships, that plan to (or have) put trees in the ground, or combinations of the above. Therefore, if you represent, are involved in or know of such an urban forestry solution we would love to hear from you!
We invite all potential Uforest social innovators and entrepreneurs to send an e-mail with information describing your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!

Want to learn how to ideate and grow your urban forestry solution into a reality?
The Uforest team guided by POLIMI will design a high-level online course open at the EU-global level. The course will provide preparation on ideation, innovation, project development and implementation of urban forestry solutions as specialised sector-specific modules. Afterwards, there is the possibility for learners to attend the world’s first face-to-face innovation programme and workshops on urban forestry.
The project will create training, using multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning, contributing to improving the quality and relevance of targeted urban forestry MSc and PhD training courses. The open source and e-learning technology together with staff and learner mobility exchange will extend the potential benefits to young researchers and professors all over Europe. Stay tuned to find out more on our e-learning course!
