Urban Forests in Concrete Jungles–Ep.02

June 16, 2019

Ep. 02 Urban Forest in Concrete Jungles.  Joining us on this program is Nora C. Davis, a Research Social Scientist at the U.S. Forest Service; and Dr. Michele Romolini, Managing Director of the Loyola Marymount University Centre for Urban Resilience (CURes).  Our talk focuses on human-nature interconnections and the work that both, Nora and Michelle have been doing in the field of urban forestry through user-inspired research and Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project (STEW-MAP).  Here we discuss, the imperatives of working with disadvantaged communities to improve urban nature and the critical role grass-roots organisations have for tackling nature-related challenges in the highly built city of Los Angeles.
