Urban Greenway Planning: Adapting to Expanding and Contracting Cities

The Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning is held every three years to bring together experts who are influencing landscape planning, policy making and greenway planning from the local to international level. It is intended to highlight recent trends and expand the literature about landscape and greenway planning. The aim is to explore how landscape architects and planners from different countries have approached greenway planning and to understand how greenways have been tailored to each county’s unique geographical, cultural, and political circumstances. The conference provides an opportunity to publish full papers in printed proceedings.

The theme for the 2019 conference explores the social and ecological potential of linear green spaces in urban areas that are experiencing decline or those that are booming. We look to understand the variety of ways in which urban greenways are conceived, designed, built, used, and maintained in cities across the globe in response to economic and demographic trends.The 2019 conference will feature over 100 presentations and posters from practitioners and scholars from all around the world on topics that include 1) Cultural and/or Historical Landscapes 2) Wildlife Habitat 3) Human Health and Well-Being 4) Recreation 5) Urban Waterfronts 6) Expanding and Contracting Cities 7) Equity and Access 8) Climate Change and Resilience 9) Implementation and Governance.
