Rethinking the ‘green city’ – contemporary research, teaching, and practice in urban greening

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


To fully appreciate the breadth of what ‘landscape’ means in different contexts requires a continual examination of how alternative approaches to landscape teaching, research and policy are integrated. To better understand such diversity asks us – as landscape professionals – to challenge our disciplinary, geographical, and political views and engage with new ideas, theories, and techniques. This includes reflections on biodiversity, climate change, heritage, and design in considerations of how we teach future landscape professionals to think about these issues in a holistic way. This special issue of Landscape Research addresses these thematic areas via a series of papers developed following the Newton Fund supported ‘Rethinking the Green City’ workshop held in Brasilia in 2019. Each paper questions about how we locate ‘green’ ideas in praxis to promote more sustainable forms of planning and asks us to think about the choices we make when discussing socio-cultural, economic, and environmental aspects of landscape.
