Seminar on Biocities at IAAC Valldaura Labs

The Biocities Seminar will discuss the future of our territory and our cities from new principles that emerge around the interaction between the science of forests, ecological urban development and the fight against climate change. The objective is to gather multiple actors working in these fields to explore ways of collaboration and shared projects from the presentation of innovative visions and pioneering projects and that should encourage a paradigm shift in our urban and territorial development.
