Trees, People and the Built Environment 4, the international urban trees conference, is requesting papers from those who would like to present at the event.

The organisers are seeking papers that address the conference topics in social and sciences. They should either be original research papers presenting new work in a specific subject area or case studies, demonstrating research being brought through to practice. More details can be seen here.

The deadline for submission is 26 July 2019 and guidelines for these can be found here.

The conference takes place on 22-23 April and will be held at the University of Birmingham. Trees, People and the Built Environment provides a platform for UK and international researchers and practitioners to promote their work. The aim is to show how research is being turned into action. The event takes place every three years and is organised by the Institute of Chartered Foresters.

The aim is to create an international, cross-discipline urban green space conference and it is divided into four areas:

· Green Innovation in Infrastructure
· Tree Value and Natural Capital
· Governance and Planning
· Collaboration is the Key to Achieving Real Change.

A diverse audience will be attending including engineers, architects, landscape architects, planners, arboriculturists, social scientists and health professionals. The conference will be chaired by professor Cecil Konijnendijk, an expert on trees, green spaces, and public health in urban environments. He has helped to develop a an undergraduate degree in urban forestry at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where he is professor of urban forestry.
