Webinar "Social representations of nature in the city"

In the actions implemented within the framework of the Nature For City LIFE project, the Population Environment Development Laboratory (LPED) of Aix-Marseille University carries out "socio-economic surveys".

These surveys aim to measure the potential changes in social representations and practices of nature in cities by individuals: citizens, elected officials and technicians concerned by the development projects and actions promoted over the 5 years by the Nature For City LIFE project.

To present the results of these sociological surveys conducted in the cities of Miramas, Aix, Marseille, Cagnes-Sur Mer and Carros between 2018 and 2019 among inhabitants, local authority technicians and elected representatives of the regional territory, a webinar "Social representations of nature in cities" is organised on Monday 16 November 2020.

This webinar will address the following issues

While scientists emphasise the living nature of nature in cities, inhabitants and technical actors remain attached to a spatialized and interventionist representation of this nature:

What are the stakes involved in public policies for greening the city and how do we measure the gaps between the different expectations of nature in the city?

How can these representations be articulated within the framework of an integrated environmental policy?
