Details

Join us for this fascinating talk with Senior Researcher at the Swedish University of Agriculture and Sciences and Scientific Curator at Gothernburg Botanic Garden, Dr Henrik Sjoman.

In this lecture, Henrik will introduce the concept that with rising populations and diminishing greenspace, humanity must begin to incorporate more plant diversity into its urban landscapes in order to protect the health and integrity of our urban ecosystems.

Discovering the urban trees of tomorrow will pave the way to improving the health and prosperity of our cities and towns for years to come.

Henrik’s experience has been crucial in helping diversify the urban treescape by introducing unconventional tree species that are resilient to urban environments.
