The recent “Urbanpromo green” event welcomed several conferences: “The green that cares” in which nature was investigated as a filter to absorb the mutations of cities; “Climate proof urban planning” which investigated the urban planning tools prepared by some cities in a climate governance framework; “Landscapes in transition” in which devastated landscapes were investigated whose recovery requires, in the plan, the forecast of an economic cycle that will keep them alive. The sessions focused not only on innovative techniques of analysis and methods of treatment of current landscapes, but also on a new approach that makes greenery and open spaces a founding element of the city’s design, to be included in the balance sought by the plan for a efficient and comfortable city. The aim of the conference is therefore to give a unitary body to the various issues addressed and to include “Green” as an essential ingredient of projects for the country. In addition to organically consolidating what has been acquired, the topic expands concretely to research projects and ongoing experiments that anticipate or already use the “green that designs”. Each coordinator will make use of everything acquired in indications for green areas designed in cities at all scales, possibly supported by a particularly significant partner of the experience presented, and two concrete experiments that are moving in the direction identified will close the review

If you are interested to participate at the development of the program of this conference, you can leave us a comment or a suggestion in the following section “contributions”.
