Urban biodiversity plays a key role for the health of our cities, the quality of life and the fight against the climate change. Biodiversity is the diversity of life, diversity of ecosystems, variety of species, diversity of genes. It is also the diversity of interactions within and between these and it does not just exist outside our cities, but also inside, in front of our door, between and with us. More than we perceive it in everyday life.
By 2050, about 70% of the world’s population will live in cities and will depend on biodiversity in order to provide many basic services. The challenge of our cities is to protect biodiversity and ecosystems and to involve them in urban planning. However, most of the times the planning efforts to make our cities greener, pass through mobility or energy efficiency solutions, and overlook basic nature integration.
In this event we will take a look at Urban Biodiversity in Berlin: How is Berlin doing? Is it green enough? What is being done to build a more biodiverse and green city? How can you contribute to it?
These and more questions we want to discuss with you in our first Urban Dialogue, jointly organised between Low Carbon City and GreenBuzz Berlin.
