Green practices in public spaces present ways of cultivating space and opportunities to develop residential participation and a sense of responsibility for the environment. Such activities bring together different groups of people, promote residents’ mutual understanding, and strengthen social responsibility.

The programme of the conference "Green transformations of the city" aims at presenting the promising potential of "green practices" such as horticultural and vegetable gardening projects as a sociocultural practice uniting communities and as a way to work with the cultural potential of a place. 

The programme focuses on the principles of sustainable development and the role of cultural institutions. 

The conference is designed to develop new inspiring practices building on the experience of the UK and Russian projects as well as answer the following questions :

  • How museums can use urban environmental initiatives to develop their relationships with communities and influence the creation of a favourable environment?
  • How museums can support local initiatives to become producers of urban communities? 

Please register to attend for free.

This project is an example of how a community of volunteers with minimal resources, without financial support from the state or local authorities, is transforming urban space through gardening and other environmental practices, personifying the power of local initiatives. Incredible Edible Rossendale is represented by Incredible Edible Todmorden at the event.
