Thanks to our partners, Revolve’s 2nd Edition (2017) of the Forest City Project was a great success. The Brussels Environment Festival in the Cinquantenaire Park in Brussels on 5 June was the highlight with an estimated 25.000 visitors (to view the 2017 Impact Report, click here).
Following the success of the photo exhibition and the first Value for Wood Forum, REVOLVE is expending the concept of reconnecting with nature to include the following activities:
- An international photo exhibition featuring future forest cities and UNESCO Cultural Heritage forests with images on display in the center of Brussels and Cinquantenaire Park from selected photographers such as Michel Petillo, until June 5 – World Environment Day
- A full day Forest City Forum addressing challenges in developing livable and sustainable urban centers on 21 March (UN International Day of Forests)
- Interactive and educational activities to engage citizens and local commerce
- A public survey to promote Brussels as a green capital and shape local policy for a greener and more livable city.
- A new spring edition of Revolve Magazine dedicated to the environment (browse last spring’s edition).
What is the future of urban development and how can nature be better integrated within the urban fabric? The Forest City Project and its forum aims to put these issues on the agenda and in the minds of policy-makers by addressing topics such as urban mining, life-cycle management, the use of wood, and the forces driving the bio-economy.
