The seminar “From Greening Schoolyards to Urban Biodiversity: Theories and Case Studies” organized by our partner CNRS, has been awarded the EU Green Week label. The event will take place at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Université Paris Cité, Ville de Paris. On 8 June 2023, 08:30 CEST – 9 June 2023, 17:30 CEST
The CNRS (UMR LADYSS, LIED), Université Paris Cité and the City of Paris are involved in the European research project COOLSCHOOLS (2022-2025) on green schoolyards.
Based on schoolyard transformation pilot projects in Barcelona, Brussels, Paris and Rotterdam, the project seeks to assess how schoolyard greening practices can lead to socio-ecological transformations in favor of urban sustainability, climate resilience, social justice and quality education.
The symposium brings together various French and foreign speakers to discuss more specifically the place of biodiversity in schoolyards’ transformations.
