The European Forum on Urban Forestry (EFUF) 2022 will be organised from 17-21 May 2022 in Belgrade (Serbia) by the City of Belgrade and its partners. The Forum theme is “adaptive measures in urban forests”. EFUF 2022 will be a great opportunity to learn about new and cutting-edge research on adaptive measures in urban forests and an opportunity to discuss with inspiring practitioners, advanced researchers and sector-leading policymakers on how to improve urban forest management in a rapidly changing world.
The call for contributions is open until the 1st of February 2022. We invite urban forest practitioners, policy makers, researchers and managers to submit abstracts for the Forum. This includes, but is not limited to, applied as well as academic research, perspectives and experience of professionals and practitioners working in policy making, planning, management, engagement of civil society amongst many others. EFUF emphasises the connection of practice and scientific knowledge, encouraging a variety of possible formats to contribute to the conference. Contributions to the 24th European Forum on Urban Forestry will explore these aspects.
- Theme 1: Adaptive ecological measures in Urban Forests – exploring the challenges of climate change, pollution, natural disasters, resilience, biodiversity loss including invasive species, pollution, biodiversity and innovative approaches to urban ecosystem management.
- Theme 2: Socio-environmental-economic measures in Urban Forests – exploring the challenges and opportunities around awareness, education, recreation, aesthetics, tourism and entrepreneurship alongside health & wellbeing services, spatial inclusion & exclusion.
- Theme 3: Planning and governance measures in Urban Forests – exploring multi-stakeholder participation in urban forests alongside monitoring assessment, policy making, spatial planning, regulations for urban forests, co-creation, co-governance and nature-based solutions.
