Save the date! The World Green Infrastructure Congress 2024 (WGIC) will take place from 3 – 5 September in Auckland, New Zealand!
World Green Infrastructure Congress is the leading global event promoting an exchange of knowledge and inspiration between professionals, companies, associations, institutions, public authorities and scientists to discuss nature-based solutions. Our reliance and impact on the environment underline the need for sustainable urban environments, where biodiversity, water and society are regenerated.
The goal of the 2024 Congress is to catalyse the use of nature-based solutions in urban environments. By coming together as an international community with experience and expertise, we aim to progress action on climate resilience, both environmentally, socially and economically.
In 2024, the University of Auckland, Waipapa Taumata Rau, in collaboration with Design for Nature and the World Green Infrastructure Network will be hosting the 11th World Green Infrastructure Congress in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.
The conference will enable an environment for strategic discussions amongst sponsors and delegates alike. We are expecting 600 delegates who are at the forefront of green infrastructure strategy, policy, research, design and technology.
The conference theme emphasises the inseparable bond between us and the natural world. Our reliance and impact on the environment underline the need for sustainable and respectful urban environments, where biodiversity, water and society are regenerated. This theme will guide the following five streams.
- Urban Strategies, Policy and Regulation
- Environment and biodiversity
- Technology and innovation
- Built environment and urban form
- Building neighbourhoods that help communities thrive and create a sense of place
