Green Public General States: fifth editionNov 15, 2019Green Public General States: fifth edition

Rome, Bologna, Torino, Milan, Lecce, Venice and Napoli 20-22 November

In 2013 Italy adopted a law on the green in the city, n. 10/2013, entitled "Rules for the development of urban green spaces", to strongly promote  a renewed  green culture of spread of trees in urbanized contexts, where most Italians live and work. The law establishes, at the Italian Ministry of the Environment for the protection of the territory and the sea, the Committee for the development of green public that is technically supported of ISPRA.

In order to stimulate discussion and debate, but also active policies on the territory, on the occasion of the National Tree Day on November 21st, the General States of Green Public 2019 were launched - now in their fifth edition - organized in 6 half-days scheduled between Rome (20 afternoon), Bologna (20 afternoon), Turin (21 morning), Milan (21 afternoon), Lecce (21 and 22) and Venice (22 morning). Each event deals with an aspect linked to green infrastructures and urban forests and represents an opportunity of comparison between the technical and institutional world, to converge towards a greater integration of green areas in territorial urban planning and towards nature-based solutions for more resilient cities.
