The GreenSmart breakfast seminars are short gatherings that explore important challenges, projects, and issues. Areas of focus range broadly from topics such as urban development and agriculture to social equality and entrepreneurship.
Access to urban public green is unequally distributed, and the COVID-19 lockdowns have shed light on the necessity of providing equal access to green urban spaces. Urban development is increasingly oriented towards strategies for sustainability and green urbanism, but the equity implications of these developments are often overlooked. The implementation of strategies to improve the quality and availability of green may indeed also have unintended outcomes for the citizens, such as acting as a trigger for gentrification processes or decreasing place attachment in some part of the population.
