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.
