6th Fabos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning
2019 Conference Theme
Urban Greenway Planning: Adapting to Expanding and Contracting Cities
The theme for the 2019 conference explores the social and ecological potential of linear green spaces in urban areas that are experiencing decline or those that are booming. We look to understand the variety of ways in which urban greenways are conceived, designed, built, used, and maintained in cities across the globe in response to economic and demographic trends.
The 2019 conference will feature over 100 presentations from practitioners and scholars from all around the world.
Our 4 fantastic keynote speakers will share their insights into greenway planning, drawing on years of experience working on projects across the world.
