WEBSITE CONTENTS and links to relevant sites are listed in the INDEX - accessible by clicking the word INDEX at the top of each page. Would members and visitors to this website please suggest other links that might be incorporated

6 November

I have just started modifying and reorganising the website which has grown a lot since we started - it will take some time to complete the reorganisation. Please send me anything you want added. Please also let me know if you have any problems accessing or reading (I am reducing font size as I think you now all have up to date Browsers) the data on the webpages - I have been trying to be a bit more clever with the way the pages come up and it may be I've got the code wrong!!

I have added a new button for the Meeting Place Case Studies (see right-hand column) have so far added the Munich information from Bettina and Stephan to that available on Marseilles and the background data on Sheffield. The Sheffield Case study is still underway (Anne and Carolyn) and data is expected from Breda (Siebrant) and Milan (Maurizio) in the near future.

The Ecology Case Studies will remain accessible under the WG1A-ecology button and the data from WG1B and WG2 will be placed under the appropriate buttons. Studies are so far available on: Munich, Vienna, Oslo , Helsinki , Ceské Budejovice , Warsaw . Further studies are underway on : Overvecht (Peter) and Sheffield (Anne and Ian Rotherham)

Minutes of WG1B are now available as are some of that group's papers: Alexander's Sociotop maps
Stockholm
and Gianni's paper Thermal comfort . WG1B button to left

 

1 October

Another paper on urban people and their reactions to greenspace added to Urban Ecology Case Studies relates to Antwerp and other Belgian cities. I have tried an experiment in reducing Font size in the WG1A Section of this website (not yet on this page) - should make it look neater in your Browser and take up less space if you print ! - I have been using a large font size as many members were on old Browsers when we started. If any of you cannot read the text now please email me

Some news, new papers and links
Draft paper - Background to greenspace in Warsaw Ewa

The Report of the UK Urban parks task force - this is the report of the governmental investigation into the state of the parks and greenspaces in British towns. Sheffield University have been involved in this and their research paper will soon be online too.

UK background data - UK national strategy for urban biodiversity.

Further examples from Sheffield of the involvement of the public and local communities in enhancing the biodiversity and general usefulness of open green spaces to the public:
Sheffield Greenspace Atlas - mapping green in the city and identifying who is responsible for its regeneration -A.R. Beer
Sheffield Wildlife Trust -this Trust pre-dates the present national level interest in enhancing biodiversity in urban areas but now links its work to the The Trust now works closely with the City Council to identify the need to improve and change the management of greenspacesacross the city.
An example of the Sheffield public's long standing interest in urban natural history can be seen in the work of the
Sorby Natural History Society
An example of local people's involvement in maintaining and enhancing an old city park -
Graves Park
An example of local people's involvement in historic garden regeneration -

Message from the Chairman:

Some news:

 

1) The minutes of our meeting in Breda will be added to this site soon.We are waiting for

papers from Kestutis and Patrick Grahn.. I am

preparing ( whith the help of Ann Caroll), the progress report for 2001 and

would like to include them.

2) The next Management Committee meeting is now fixed: Munich June 6-9( from

Thursday evening to Sunday mid-day); more informations later on. Lucia, any

new about Rome in autumn?

3) A working group meeting is planned for WG 1A ( Stephan Pauleit) in

Sheffield, March 8-10. If the other WG need or plan a meeting, it is time

now to think precisely about it.

4) I must underline that we are entering our second full year of work, which

means that at the end of it we will be supposed to have finished the first

analytical phase ( states of arts and case studies). Therefore our next MC

meeting will be the moment to collect materials and to start writing them

in a form that could be published, at least as a "grey paper".

Material for C11- WG 1B, Breda - message from Klaus Wagner.

Comments on the Minutes of the Marseilles meeting:

A point that has not yet been mentioned in our discussions is the importance of green structures for the sustainability of different natural resources (clean water and air, plants, food), and within or in the surrounds of densely populated areas; also its importance as a heritage for the next generations.

Globalisation makes us careless about our supply of food, etc.: it will be produced somewhere in the world. But if you think about the increase in the world's population, this confidence may be misguided in the future, e.g. in 50 or 100 years. So another important aspect in the discussion of green structures in my view is the protection of natural resources, not only for ecological reasons, but also in connection with the implications for food supply.

I don't want to broaden the themes of C11 too much, but somewhere this aspect could be mentioned.

This message got missed by me but theexistance of the network may still be of interest

"At the moment a network dealing with urban greenstructures, called

GREENNET-CITY, will be set up. You are co-ordinating or directly related

with EU-projects including similair topics. I suppose GREENNET-CITY will

therefore have your interest. It would be nice if you (or participants of

your project) join this network !

Please read the invitation below carefully, pay attention to the deadline of

februari 15th and let me know whether you would like to join GREENNET-CITY

or not. If you are willing to join, I'll send you further information,

including EU-forms, planning etc. (GREENNET-CITY is as concerted action ment

to set up a network).

 

Official invitation:

 

> As you may know, we are preparing a proposal for concerted action under

Dear Colleagues Webmasters of COST UCE (+ COST G3) websites/webpages,

 

I have the pleasure to inform you of the new address of the COST UCE

website, managed by VTT in Finland:

 

http://www.vtt.fi/rte/projects/yki4/cost/costk.htm

 

This site is, of course, linked with the general COST website.

 

I think that it might be useful, if not already done, to establish an

hyperlink between your websites/webpages and the COST UCE website and, in

any case, to update the COST UCE website address in your "bookmarks" and/or

"favourites"!

-- SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT --

 

 

Background

In Europe, more than two thirds of the population live in urban areas, and partly because of that, the quality of the urban environment is increasingly recognised to be a key ingredient of the social and economic regeneration of Europe cities. Trees have an impact on the abiotic and social aspects of a city, provide recreational opportunities and increase wildlife. Therefore, sustainability of forest stands and urban trees are important for the rapidly growing number of urban habitants. In the future, urbanisation in Europe is expected to increase. Another aspect of city greenspace is a cultural role of historical parks and gardens. Preservation of the environment is a main issue for cities of Eastern Europe in a time of democratisation processes and economic reorganisation.

 

In the conference, the changing roles of urban green areas in Eastern European cities and elsewhere are in the focus. The complex challenges facing the planning, conservation and development of urban green areas, as well as innovative ways of meeting these challenges, are to be discussed.

 

Registration and abstracts:

You are kindly invited to register for the conference and send in abstracts related to one of the four themes as discussed above. Please register and send in your abstract before 1 February 2001. Abstracts should not be longer than 5000 symbols and must be publishable.

 

Participation fees:

Total registration cost, including a copy of the conference proceedings, refreshments, lunches, and symposium materials are estimated to be 150-200 Euro.

 

Excursion and cultural programme:

Visits to various imperial parks and palaces (e.g. the Hermitage) are part of the programme, at an additional cost of 90 Euro.

Message from Anne Beer in Sheffield

Management Committee Meeting Sheffield

Franck has just sent me this message:

"A short Email to inform you that I received today the approval for next COST C11 meeting in Sheffield. Dates: 3 to 5 December 2000, 24 Delegates to the MC entitled to ask for reimbursement by COST."

 

  • So -please book your flights as soon as possible- I suggest you fly into Sheffield via Brussels (Sabena) or to Manchester (all other routes and then take the train to Sheffield direct from the Airport - I will post train times and addresses of our meeting places on this site later in November). Note: London arrivals are a waste of time and money as it costs about £130 return by rail from London St Pancras Station to Sheffield!. If possible arrive Saturday, as we will be busy all day Sunday. The meeting will finish mid-day Tuesday - so a late afternoon/evening flights for the return on the Tuesday would be OK.
  • Please also phone directly to the Forte POST HOUSE Hotel, Fulwood Road, Sheffield (00 44 870 400 9071 )to confirm your room directly yourself (they will need a credit card number to confirm the booking). They have agreed the price of about 60 Euros per night for Bed and Breakfast (at the present rate of exchange that is £35 per night) - you can eat there too but I suggest you just book the Bed and Breakfast deal. THEY ARE HOLDING THE ROOMS UNTIL 10 NOVEMBER - SO BOOK BEFORE THEN - when you book -please say you are part of the COST11 party booked by Anne Beer do not mention the word conference as they will try to charge us more!! our negotiated room rate is lower. It is a very "average quality" hotel but in the process of being "improved". It is usually clean amd warm and it does have a swimming pool - but I have chosen it because it does not cost too much, is very near the conference facilities I have booked and it is within walking distance of eating places.

  • In addition to the cost of paying for the Hotel, you will have to pay us a total of about 70 Euros for the organised meals (2 lunches and one dinner) . For the other meals, I'll arrange that you get a list of local eating places- you should be able to eat for about 34 Euros (about £20) per evening meal per person .
  • Can you email me to confirm you are coming and let me know arrival days and times so we can look after you when you get here. I need to know final numbers fairly soon for booking the bus-tour on Sunday and the organised meals. I need to know the names of the Spanish and Lithuanian members - does anyone know?

 

Note: I will be off line and not in Sheffield due to family problems from now until 30th October - after that I will post more detailed info. on this site. I look forward to seeing you all in Sheffield

 

Anne

8 October

I have added some more suggestions for definitions from other members of the group and some ideas about possible working groups as well as info about Case Studies and clusters of research interest - keep them coming. (click Glossary and Research to see)

I now have 6 personal Presentations - please remember to send as soon as possible - I will sart adding these with links from the members page next week

When sending comments and ideas - do not worry about the "english" - at this stage - I'll modify as necessary to make sense altho. I do not want to spend a lot of time polishing the english.

 

PRIOR NOTICE - I will not be online 15-22 October so get info to me by 14th or after 22nd - Anne

PLEASE FIND OUT ABOUT FLIGHTS TO MANCHESTER or SHEFFIELD (via Brussels - Sabena) to arrive Sat 2nd December or Sun 3rd Dec.. DO NOT BOOK until Franck confirms the meeting has been approved. 20 rooms are being held in an Hotel near the proposed Conference Centre which is the Conference Room at Ranmoor Hall University of Sheffield.

5 October

I have added a version of list of "topics" we discussed in Brussels - please look at this and add and amend. We will need to cluster the topics so that we can form Working Groups - please send me your individual ideas about possible working groups and clusters of research interest - so that we can all start reacting.

I now have 4 personal Presentations - please remember to send yours by Friday if possible.

 

When sending comments and ideas - do not worry about the "enlish" - at this stage I'll modify as necessary to make sense altho. I do not want to spend a lot of time polishing the english.

2 October

Please send your Personal details by email to Anne Beer by 6 October

The Glossary has been started - please add your definitions and list the terms you want included - Click Glossary button to the right

20 Sept

This is a first draft to get us going; there will be lots of amendments in due course.
Please
email to me any data you want included and let me know what you want to see, and send me any amendments where I have got something wrong - at this stage it is easy to change things.

In particular, please check the Members List now and tell me what I should have said!

Also use the Message Board!
You can use the Message Board for short messages (up to 200 words), but if you have a long message/paper to share, please click here and
email it to me and I will index it and arrange to put it on a web page by itself.
