Re-Naturing Cities Workshop
The main aim of this workshop is to explore novel theories, strategies and methods for re-naturing cities. There is today strong interest in the theme, since 'naturalising' cities can help address multiple global societal challenges and generate benefits, such as the enhancement of health and well-being, sustainable urbanisation, ecosystems and their services and resilience to climate change. Approximately 40 academics from the UK and Brazil, most of which will be early career researchers, will participate in this four-day workshop. This initiative is a partnership between the University of Portsmouth and the Universidade Federal de Goiás.
