To welcome biodiversity in the urban environment means to anticipate forms of future today. Architecture and art play a crucial role: from the narration of the multiple possible combinations of nature and city, to the design of hybrid urban spaces, to promote urban biodiversity means to create spaces of coexistence and hybridisation between the natural and the artificial spheres. Cities of tomorrow need spaces that create and regenerate natural ecosystems: a new urbanity where forests become a crucial asset for the survival of the planet and biodiversity is treated as an anticipation of the future to be defended, protected and encouraged.
