The following October 13th at 8:30h CEST, Madrid´s city town hall will be collaborating in the organization of the Innovate4Cities Conference, promote by UN-Habitat and the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy.

The Round Table will be debating about how urban renaturalization is an opportunity for coexistence and social inclusion and for multi-actor and multi-sector collaboration.

Answers will be given to questions such as:

– Could urban renaturalization strategies be shifting from an individual to a collective behavioural approach?
– Could these strategies be urban planning experiments based on multi-actor and multi-sector collaborations?
– How can it be combined the expert and institutional notion of “green infrastructures” with the emerging “counter-narratives” coming from mass social movements?Program and Speakers:
