Urban Forest Boundaries
The European Forum on Urban Forestry (EFUF) celebrates its 20th anniversary in the metropolis of Barcelona. The congress is open to researchers and professionals from Europe who are interested in reflecting on the urban forest fringe areas as spaces of opportunities that can be connected with and contribute to the territory.
Under the title "Urban Forest Boundaries. Within, between and beyond the city" , the conference aims to raise the importance of urban and peri-urban forests in building a sustainable and healthy landscape.
It addresses issues such as ecological connectivity, compatibility of ecosystem services, biodiversity and disturbances, and the social aspects of forest management and planning those fringe areas in collaboration with the new culture of leisure.
For all the above, the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona invites you to participate in this congress, to address the latent problems in the contact and interaction between two realities destined to coexist: the city and open spaces.
