ESCom Series November: GREEN SURGE Workshop

Friday, 11th November 2016
Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation

 GREEN SURGE workshop focused on green infrastructure and green economy

Green infrastructure and the green economy

This workshop will target practitioners representing local and regional authorities involved in urban green infrastructure management. The aim of the workshop is to share knowledge about methods for capturing the values of urban greenspace between practitioners and researchers with a view on developing relevant (suited to different purposes and audiences) approaches. This workshop will also touch upon green procurement, exploring avenues for developing a rights and obligations framework around commercial use and external funding of greenspaces. Insights will be shared on different ways of promoting a green economy from the GREEN SURGE project, which has studied practices in a number of cities across the EU. Participants will engage in workshop exercises and optionally (after lunch) a game to explore and understand the different roles and opportunities of different actors involved in the governance of green infrastructure.

Registration by invitation only
