AIPH announces third series of Green City Briefings

Following the success of the first two series, the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and the Worshipful Company of Gardeners (WCoG) present the AIPH Green City Briefings 2024/25. These free one hour webinars will demonstrate how successful integrated urban greening provides benefits for the city, its residents, and nature.

The first webinar in the series: “Flourishing urban design with plants”, will take place at 1pm BST on 16th May 2024. The focus of this session will be on how the incorporation of plants into city environments not only provides beauty, but also contributes to improved air quality, reduced urban heat island effect, and enhanced biodiversity.

Speakers include:

  • Jane Welsh: IFLA Special Envoy to AIPH and Co-Chair of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects Committee on Climate Adaptation. Jane is currently the Project Manager of the Environmental Planning unit of Toronto City Planning.
  • Elisa Olivares: Lecturer for the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield.
  • Kathryn Deery: Head Horticulturist at Lurie Garden in Chicago, USA.

Participants will be able to ask questions during the discussion or post them in the Aiph Global Green City Forum.
