Theme: Growing Green Cities
The Earth has seven billion inhabitants, more than fifty percent of whom live in cities. By 2050 this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanization, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.
In this context, we have developed four sub-themes:
- Green – parks and green structures which make cities more attractive.
- Food – food production, safety and food security solutions.
- Health – the effect of green structures on a healthy living environment, as well as on the physical and mental vitality of city inhabitants.
- Energy – sustainable energy solutions, as well as the effects of green spaces on the vitality of a city.
