We are pleased to invite you to attend the 6th International Conference on Landscape and Urban Horticulturethat will take place in Athens, Greece, June 20-25, 2016, under the auspices of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the Laboratory of Floriculture & Landscape Architecture of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA).
The theme of the Conference “Landscape and urban horticulture in pursuit of social, environmental and economic wellness” emphasises the need to reflect on our contemporary way of life in relation to Landscape Design and Urban Horticulture. Increased urban building density and urban sprawl have tipped the balance between nature and humans leading to unsustainable urban development characterised by social, environmental and economic problems. Urban Horticulture plays an integral role in securing the benefit of human wellbeing. Thus the 6th International Conference on Landscape and Urban Horticulture aims to focus on identifying contemporary urban aesthetic, environmental and social problems and intensify possible solutions through interdisciplinary scientific collaboration for dispersion of knowledge, expertise and technology.
