What role does nature play in making cities more sustainable? And how can one contribute to making the cities we live in more equitable? What are some considerations when selecting trees to be planted within a city?

In this talk, Seema shows us a different way of looking at urban greening based on her research and interactions with residents and civic officials. Join us as she chalks out a path forward with planting in urban areas, while navigating the requirements of civic management, concerns of the citizens & RWAs, and the needs of urban biodiversity.
