Building with nature – examples from Utrecht

January 26 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm GMT

Connecting people with nature and people; a presentation on the experience of the City of Utecht in urban greening by Gitty Korsuize

Gitty Korsuize works as a urban ecologist at the city of Utrecht (the Netherlands). As an urban green and nature advisor, Gitty Korsuize shows residents of Utrecht which nature surprises cities can offer (@stadsecoloog030). Gitty connects people with nature, nature with people and people with an interest in nature with each other. As a strategist she seizes opportunities to preserve and strengthen nature. The Utrecht approach to the animal-friendly building, for example, converts the flora and fauna research funds into more effective measures for animals that depend on buildings in the city. By smart procurement Utrecht is now also famous for its green roofs on busstops and the world largest bee-hotel.
