Samen met de Aeres Hogeschool, Floriade.digital en de gemeente Almere organiseert de provincie het Engelstalige symposium Circular Green Cities. Aanmelden graag voor 30 september.
The impact of climate change on urban life is significant. The latest IPCC report shows imminent action is necessary. It calls for climate mitigation through a transition towards a circular economy as well as a radical greening of urban areas. The Circular Green Cities symposium will address both these challenges, moderated by Xander de Bruine, program manager Floriade 2022.
The symposium will be streamed live through Floriade.digital. The symposium will be English spoken. The number of seats at the Food Forum is restricted.
In the newly built Food Forum pavilion at the Floriade in Almere, Gideon Spanjar, professor Innovation & Green Urban Space at Aeres University of Applied Sciences will present his Climate and Nature Responsive cities vision based on the current urban challenges. Gideon is professor of Innovation & Urban Green Spaces at Aeres University of Applied Sciences. His professorship conducts research on Rewilding Cities, Biobased Building Materials, Urban Micro-Climates for the promotion of human well-being and future-proofing cities. He is also a member of the chair Spatial Transformation and the chair Urban Water at AUAS, an associate fellow at the Centre for Econics and Ecosystem Management and advisory board member of the Practice Innovation Centre Circular Economy (PRICE).
Vojtech Vosecky of Circle Economy will show us circular trends in European cities, including Prague, and will elaborate on some innovative projects.
Dr. Agnieszka O. Guizzo presents us the groundbreaking urban greening vision from the city of Singapore.
Paola Huijding, senior urban planner with the city of Almere, talks us through the future development of Pampus, a new urban development in Almere. This area will be developed in a nature-inclusive and circular way.
And finally Gerrit Jan van ’t Veen, CEO of WorldStartup, will present the new platform Floriade.digital.
