Tree and urban landscapes provide an opportunity for every citizen to contribute to climate resilience through informed plant selection and sustainable management practices. The University of Arizona Campus Arboretum was established to guide science-based urban tree stewardship and to advance conservation best practices for campus and communities throughout the state.
Public Participation in the Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Spain
Alba Ballester Ciuró, Researcher at University of Seville and University Autónoma of Barcelona
The requirements of public participation of the European water framework directive have resulted in the development of different participatory processes in water planning in Spain. This seminar presents a critical assessment of these processes, paying special attention to their intangible results and the potential of public participation for social capacity building. Building on it, a preliminary framework for the analysis of social capacities of Tucson environmental organizations will be proposed.
