Communicating Knowledge & Advice
At Urban Ecology in Action, our passion for building better cities where people and nature co-exist, inspires us to share cutting-edge knowledge, ideas and advice with engaged and interested audiences.
We seek to communicate our expertise and research findings to drive action towards the creation of cities for people and biodiversity.
We offer workshops, presentations, site walk & talks, training events, plus other group activities that share practical knowledge and advice.
In short, by engaging and inviting many people to contribute and build capabilities with us, we aim to create cities that are more sustainable, resilient and enjoyable places for people and nature to co-exist.
