AIPH and UBHUB partner on World Green Cities awards

The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and the Urban Biodiversity Hub (UBHub) formalized a partnership to collaborate on the AIPH World Green City Awards.

“The AIPH World Green City Awards is a unique opportunity to recognize cities’ efforts in linking urban vegetation, food systems, and biodiversity for healing humanity’s relationship with nature, and to promote healthier, more sustainable, and liveable cities,” Mike Tan with UBHub said. “UBHub is proud to announce our partnership with AIPH to support the inaugural edition of the Awards.”

Dr. Audrey Timm, technical advisor of the AIPH Green City Programme echoes this enthusiasm: “We are thrilled to welcome UBHub as a supporting partner for the AIPH World Green City Awards and look forward to jointly promoting leading initiatives with the potential to inspire cities around the world to embrace nature-based solutions to our complex urban challenges.”

The AIPH Green City Programme acknowledges the significant contribution local governments can make to conserve and restore urban biodiversity. The programme aims to provide awareness and expertise in urban greening while advocating for an international standard for green cities.

AIPH and UBHub invite all cities, large and small, to further demonstrate their ambitious actions and showcase their work on urban greening and biodiversity by entering the AIPH World Green City Awards. Visit aiph.org to learn more.
