The second edition of the World Forum on Urban Forests will take place in Washington, D.C. from Oct. 16-20. The aim of the forum is to continue to highlight positive examples of planning, design and management approaches that cities with diverse cultures, forms, structure and histories have implemented to optimize the contribution that urban forests and green infrastructure can provide in terms of economic development, environmental conservation and resilience, improved social cohesion, and increased public involvement.
This year’s theme is “Greener, Healthier and Happier Cities for All.” Join friends and colleagues from around the world as we focus on the importance of building inclusive and accessible cities where the goods and services of urban forests and trees are universally available.
The forum is co-organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Arbor Day Foundation, the USDA Forest Service, the Smithsonian Institution, the city of Washington D.C., the International Society of Arboriculture, Politecnico di Milano and Società Italiana di Selvicoltura ed Ecologia Forestale.
