Cities are the most altered landscapes created by people, and by 2050 the world’s urban population will swell by almost 3 billion. How can we protect and restore green infrastructure – natural habitat which supplies crucial benefits to urban residents and helps cities adapt to climate change?
Senior Scientist for Sustainability at The Nature Conservancy, Rob McDonald, presents stories of cities around the world where city planners, economists and ecologists have overcome these challenges, highlighting the new science that is providing hope for cities in the future. A moderated conversation with Senior Science Director at the Wilderness Society, Greg Aplet, and a book signing with Rob will follow.
