The role of botanic gardens in an urban setting

21 September 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The story of the University of Dundee’s Botanic Garden is one of transformation across time and function.

It is the story of not just a garden in isolation but of a site for learning and teaching, and now the wider urban ecosystem that it exists in.

This talk will look back over the garden’s 50-year journey to reflect on its evolution as a site with agency and a role to play in addressing anthropogenic change, locally and globally.

Explore the garden’s role in progressing nature-based solutions, drawing insights from its diverse living collection and historic landscapes, propelled through novel citizen-powered data ecosystems for inclusive and green urban transitions.

Discover how Dundee Botanic Garden, can act as an agent of change locally, from a curatorial perspective that is concerned with anthropogenic global change.
