How will the city of the future look like?

The Nature of Cities Festival is the world’s first and only cities festival with a truly global and transdisciplinary nature. This event is experimental and very interactive, with most of the sessions being participatory. The aim is to enhance new ways of thinking and imagining cities and to seed ideas to develop cities that are better both for humans and for nature.

The Nature of Cities Festival is an online event with programming across all regional time zones and in multiple languages. One of the core principles of the festival is to foster inclusivity and lower barriers for participation. The programme of the festival is innovative and has different types of sessions, such as interactive workshops, talk, online field trips, art performances, and working groups. A great part of the event is crowd sourced, meaning that sessions are freely proposed by projects, experts, organisations, and initiatives involved in urbanisms and other urban-related topics.

The festival is organised by The Nature of Cities (TNOC), an international platform for transdisciplinary dialogue and urban solutions. The platform facilitates the sharing of diverse, transformative ideas about cities as ecosystems of people, nature, and infrastructure. TNOC produces publicly available programs, events, knowledge, and publication to promote the green transition of urban centres

Ilaria Doimo and Colm O’Driscoll from Etifor will participate to the festival with a seed session focusing on learning and training in Urban Forestry. On this occasion, the Uforest project, of which Etifor is partner, will be presented, as well as the training and learning opportunities offered by the project. The session will take place on the 30th of March, at 11am.
