Our expert speakers will use global to local examples to examine the importance of green infrastructure and biophilic design for creating sustainable and resilient urban landscapes. Using both global and local perspectives, speakers will tackle policy and planning conditions associated with green infrastructure, discuss integration of biophilic principles into urban design and architecture, and outline how cities like Plymouth could lead the way in a transition from grey to green.
