Can Christchurch Plant Its Way Out of Climate Change?
Join us online here:
Plants are vital for life on Earth. In a warming world, they provide shade, reduce erosion, slow flooding, store carbon, and more. Put simply, they are good for people and the planet. The effective use of this green infrastructure could be important in cities as the challenges of climate change intensify.
How can we best use plants in our cities to ameliorate the effects of the rapidly-changing climate? When is it appropriate to offset emissions by planting trees? Are trees our best urban climate technology?
From street trees and rain gardens to carbon accounting, ‘Can Christchurch plant its way out of climate change?’ is an exploration of the opportunities and limitations of using plants in response to climate change.
Join us on Tuesday 20 September to hear from experts, passionate people and groups working in this area.
