Ecosystem Services Come to Town is a practical forum that draws together the leading practitioners who understand that true collaboration is about learning to think and act differently in the interests of better environment, economic and social conditions. It will demonstrate the business case for Green Infrastructure and identify planning and design decisions that have the greatest economic, environmental and social impact.

Taking place in London 25-28 November, Ecosystem Services Come to Town will be attended by over 200 of Europe’s leading policy makers, urban planners, developers, contractors, city architects, builders, manufacturers, community groups, utility companies and NGOs.
