Green Cities Built With Nature
The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), through its Green City initiative, and ICLEI, via its Cities Biodiversity Center (CBC), have announced a global partnership to collaborate on the 'Cities With Nature' partnership initiative.
Our Solutions are in Nature
Biodiversity is essential for sustainable development and human wellbeing. This was the message from the United Nations ahead of International Biodiversity Day recently. The theme this year is “Our Solutions are in Nature,” which could not be more pertinent at this time when our cities face many challenges.
Chair of the AIPH Green City Committee, Bill Hardy, says: “Our partnership with 'Cities With Nature' enhances the capacity of AIPH to influence practice, and change the way our cities look and function.”
AIPH Technical Advisor, Dr Audrey Gerber (above), added “This partnership reinforces our serious green ambitions. Through joint activities, research, and shared resources, facilitated by this partnership, we will seek to inspire people worldwide. This can only reignite our relationship with nature and to reap the benefits."
