From the 29th to the 31st of March, join The Nature of Cities Festival!
The Nature of Cities (TNOC) is an international platform for transdisciplinary dialogue and urban solutions. The platform facilitates the sharing of diverse, transformative ideas about cities as ecosystems of people, nature, and infrastructure. TNOC produces publicly available programs, events, knowledge, and publication to promote the green transition of urban centres.
One of the most important events is certainly The Nature of Cities Festival, which this year will take place from the 29th to the 31st of March.
The Festival is the world’s first and only cities festival with a truly global and transdisciplinary nature. This event is experimental and very interactive, with most of the sessions being participatory. The aim is to enhance new ways of thinking and imagining cities and to seed ideas to develop cities that are better both for humans and for nature.
This is an online event with programming across all regional time zones and in multiple languages. Indeed, one of the core principles of the festival is to foster inclusivity and lower barriers for participation.
The programme of the festival is transdisciplinary and innovative and has different types of sessions, such as interactive workshops, talk, online fieldtrips, art performances, and working groups. A great part of the event is crowd sourced, meaning that sessions are freely proposed by projects, experts, organisations, and initiatives involved in urbanism and other urban-related topics.
Uforest will participate to the TNOC Festival with a seed session focusing on learning and training in urban forestry. On this occasion, Uforest will present its training and learning opportunities, as well as its reports and case studies, with the aim to illustrate best practices and share knowledge in urban forestry. The Uforest seed session will take place on the 30th of March, at 11am.
