The ARBR'EMOTIONS event starts with a lecture by Ernst Zürcher:
"Trees in the city, a real place to create".
Ernst Zürcher will talk to us about trees and the importance of their place in the city, both as a climate regulator and as a source of biodiversity. He will be talking about the importance of old trees and the need to replant trees in order to clear the city of concrete and create more green spaces to connect citizens with nature close to home. Not forgetting the benefits to our health and the importance of looking after the trees that surround us.
Ernst Zürcher is a forestry engineer with a doctorate in natural sciences, a former professor and researcher in wood science at the Bern University of Applied Sciences, and a lecturer at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). His research focuses on the temporal structures of trees (chronobiology). He is the author of numerous scientific articles and several books, including "Les arbres entre visible et invisible" (Actes Sud. 2016).
