Event Details

 

This event is hosted by City of Melbourne and ARCUE as part of the Annual Conference of the Ecological Society of Australia.

  

Come and join a lively expert discussion which will tackle many issues regarding urban biodiversity. What are the opportunities and challenges we face in conserving and enhancing urban biodiversity as our cities contend with the impacts of climate change, population growth and increasing density? How do we define urban biodiversity? What role does biodiversity play in improving human health and well-being? What are the unexploited opportunities for biodiversity in urban landscapes? What is the role of a capital city in responding to the impacts of growth and climate change on biodiversity?
