Knowledge transfer is a key objective of the AIPH Green City programme. The AIPH Green City Briefings are a series of online webinars that connect knowledge to practice. These webinars feature cities that demonstrate significant progress in including plants and nature in the city’s form and function. Each one-hour webinar will start with a presentation by an expert presenting the principles that explain how urban greening benefits the city, its residents, and nature. The second presentation will be from a city to show how the principles are put into practice and how their success is transformational.
The first of the new series of Green City Briefings is on 13th September 2022 from 1- 2pm UK time. AIPH is delighted to introduce the featured city Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is the host city for the C40 Summit. In its commitment to climate solutions Buenos Aires has committed to halving its carbon emissions by 2030 and going fully carbon neutral by 2050. In the AIPH Green City Briefing in September you will hear how Buenos Aires accelerates its contribution to a better future for all through innovative action that focuses on the integration of nature conservation in inclusive city planning. It demonstrates how greening operates in synergy with other city initiatives, and how conservation strategies are integrated into urban development with a particular focus on participatory and associative co-management that addresses vulnerabilities.
AIPH is proud to continue to be associated with the Worshipful Company of Gardeners and is grateful for their support.
