Beware of the green orthodoxy. A critical analysis of urban greening

On Thursday, February 24th at 12 pm, we hosted CAS SEE Weekly Seminar with Bianca Galmarini, presented by our Fellow Andrea Colombo

Galmarini will address the role of nature-based architecture and urban greening in strategies for climate change adaptation and in cities ecological transition. In particular, she will explore both positive and controversial effects on urban space, considering issues such as environmental benefits, community involvement and awareness, economic and socio-spatial impacts. This talk discusses the risks of an a-political, a-critical and technocentric approach to environmental issues and urban sustainability.

Bianca Galmarini is PhD candidate in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Florence. She is part of the research group “LabSo, Sociological Laboratory on design, architecture, city and territory” at the University of Florence, and is interested in the relationship between spaces, groups and socio-cultural issues. She has worked with plant scientists exploring plant-based solutions in architecture and urban regeneration. She is currently studying the socio-economic transformations generated by urban greening interventions.
