About the Evergreen Conference


The 2024 Evergreen Conference is a two-day respite to experience placemaking in action. It’s an opportunity to learn and connect with people across sectors committed to building better public spaces for people and planet.

Last year, we shared our bold new focus: public places as a solution to some of the most pressing challenges cities and communities face.

This year, the Conference is going to feel a bit different. We want the conference to fill your cup, not add to your plate. It will be energizing, informative and provide opportunities for real connection – to nature, to each other, and to ourselves.

We’re pleased to be working with our lead content partner, the Urban Resilience Hub by UN-Habitat’s City Resilience Global Programme, to share how people around the world are using public spaces create more resilient cities.
