LI CPD: Mitigating the Climate and Biodiversity Emergencies
22 Mar 2022
Day 2. 3 How can the profession mitigate the climate emergency?
Through their work at Forest for Change, Scape Design will explore what they have learnt about the effects of climate change on urban tree species selection, of a mini forest on the associated microclimate, and ensuring the long-term viability of trees in our city. It will then look at West Gorton Sponge Park as a case study for how nature-based solutions can help combat climate change, while adding biodiversity and social value.
