Sustaining with Street Trees: An online panel discussion event

Over 80% of the population of Britain lives in an urban area. By 2030 the climate of London will be similar to that of Barcelona. How can we think about greening our city in the face of the challenges ahead? And how do we centre care and equity for our human and non-human neighbours while we do so? 
The discussion will include the role of planting street trees to address the climate crises, street tree projects, tree selection and whether to plant with native or non-native species, the ecology of exotic species and the relationship between green infrastructure and gentrification. 
Speakers: Oli Back, Poppy George, Dr Mark Spencer and Russell Miller. 
When: Tuesday 12 March 2024; 6.30pm – 8.00pm
Where: Online talk
