GardenTech: future urban green space
Thu 1 June 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 BST
Part of the Chelsea Fringe 2017 festival, GardenTech brings together a panel of academics, corporates and start-ups all working in London with NGO’s, developers and volunteers, to improve the quality of the urban environment through the intersection of technology and urban green space.
Research shows that cities can be excellent for wildlife biodiversity if habitat is made available, and it is increasingly recognised that nature and green spaces are vital for the health and well-being of people everywhere. Not only this, there are many broader environmental benefits that can be derived from getting out into the garden including improved urban air quality, rain water management, carbon mitigation and urban food production - we can all support the resilience of cities such as London by giving people agency to make a difference.
To spark discussion, we'll have people joining us from imby.bio, Intel, the Peckham Coal Line, Green Lab and the Bat Conservation Trust, but we're hoping everyone attending will provide their own thoughts and ideas!
The event is free to attend, refreshments will be served after the panel to let the conversation continue, head to www.futureurbangreen.space for more information on speakers and topics.
