Themes of the conference
* visions of large parks in large cities
* the specific aspects of large parks and nature reserves in townscapes in contrast to urban greening in general
* the role of large parks in urban ecology
* the role of large parks as a source of biodiversity in cities
* ecosystem services from urban green areas and specifically from large parks in large cities
* the role of large parks when building the sustainable city and mitigating climate change
* the role of large parks when integrating - functionally and architecturally - the city in the landscape
* large parks in understanding the history of the landscape
* the establishment and legal status of large parks
* urban planning for large parks - threats and conflicts
* governance of large parks in large cities

These themes can be addressed through case studies, research and practical applications of planning and nature conservation. We strongly encourage presentations of large parks in metropolitan areas and large cities at this conference. We ask for contributions from both practitioners and researchers.
