Green Infrastructure for Ecosystem Services in the Built Environment: Masterclasses
September 01, 2012 - March 31, 2013
United Kingdom and Ireland
18 accredited interdisciplinary masterclasses are being held around the UK and Ireland from September 2012 - March 2014. Led by experts in urban green infrastructure design, policy and implementation, these events will explore the local potential to adapt our towns and cities to climate change by working with the grain of nature. Starting in September 2012 in Glasgow, these 18 masterclasses led by UK experts are hosted monthly in key urban centres around the UK and Ireland. Participants explore the potential for urban green infrastructure in the host city, looking at issues of policy, planning, design, installation and maintenance, developing the confidence and skills needed for good practice and implementation. Facilitated by RESET in association with chartered institutions and Defra/DCLG’s Green Infrastructure Partnership, these workshops share knowledge and expertise with local practitioners and designers, planners and policy makers, contractors and green space managers. September 2012 - March 2014. Throughout the UK and Ireland.
