Session 'Green Norm for Cities'

‘Greening the city’ is great for climate adaptation, for improved health & wellbeing and for more biodiversity. But what green intervention is needed exactly in the built environment, and how to define the new norm for green in cities? This session offers an introduction to the 3-30-300 norm (Cecil Konijnendijk), as well as more detailed norm systems from Denmark and The Netherlands. What green norms do we need to effectively include nature in urban developments?

On Monday July 4 and Tuesday July 5 the two days Conference "Growing Green Cities" takes place at Floriade in Almere. 

Climate change, urbanization, declining biodiversity, pandemics, extreme weather and increasing food production: these are just a few of the factors that challenge the future of our cities. There is growing evidence that nature based solutions can be sound investments for future urban challenges. Many investments in our cities of today are expected to last for generations, so there is a need to include long term thinking in our current decision making. 

During this two days conference we look from different disciplines and five dimensions; nature inclusive product- and services design, nature-inclusive building, growing green neighborhoods and green spatial planning in urbanizing regions. Practitioners, researchers, policymakers and students gather to share good Dutch and international practices on how to evolve multi-disciplinary practices that develop longer term thinking and acting in our city- networks, policies and decision making.
