EUGIC 2017 Budapest brings together leaders in urban green infrastructure to share nature-based solutions for resilient 21st century cities. We expect over 300 participants from across the built environment sector – planners and policy makers, ecologists, architects and landscape architects, engineers, developers and investors, constructors and facilities managers. We will explore how urban centres across Europe and beyond are addressing climate change and biodiversity loss, managing water, air quality and energy, and designing for health and wellbeing by working with nature.
Tickets are on sale now! We have an Early Bird discount price for all the participants that register for the event by May 31.
EUGIC 2017 Budapest is organised in partnership with Livingroofs.org, supported by the European Union and hosted by the City of Budapest.
