Forests, their use and sustainable management, are key to combating climate change. They contribute to the prosperity and well-being of current and future generations; from improved microclimates by managing heat islands and flooding risks to promoting health and wellbeing of citizens. Forests also play a crucial role in poverty alleviation and in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
TEDI-London’s local area – Canada Water – is the heart of a 53 acre urban redevelopment. As the Canada Water masterplan unfolds, a proportion of existing, mature trees will be removed. Although these are pledged to be replaced over time, the local community will still be impacted by this transition. This calls for repurposing this timber to minimise waste and offers the opportunity to set up new engagement and upskilling initiatives within the local community. During winter school 2024, you’ll explore ways to make trees in cities part of applied circular economy thinking and harness the capacity of the local community to implement useful projects.
