Urban Sustainability: Nature-based solutions and ecosystem services

08/07/2021 at 14:30 - 15:30

Dr Alessio Russo, PhD : Urban Sustainability: Nature-based solutions and ecosystem services


Over the last few decades, the school of thought surrounding the urban ecosystem has increasingly become in vogue among researchers worldwide. Since half of the world’s population lives in cities, urban ecosystem services have become essential to human health and wellbeing. Rapid urban growth has forced sustainable urban developers to rethink important steps by updating and, to some degree, recreating the human–ecosystem service linkage. This talk addresses concepts and metaphors such as nature-based solutions and wellbeing, ecosystem services, nature-based thinking, urban regeneration, urban agriculture, urban-rural interface, rewilding.

Dr. Alessio Russo, PhD is a Senior Lecturer and Academic Course Leader in MA Landscape Architecture, University of Gloucestershire https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Alessio_Russo2
