Nomaji wants to promote research based practice. Our goal is to share our expertise and knowledge as efficiently as possible within the office and with our partners. That is why we have started to organize monthly science afternoons. The science afternoons are open and free events.

Meritullinkatu 11 D (3rd floor)

Welcome to our next Science afternoon to listen about carbon-smart urban green infrastructure. For the last 3 years, two Nomaji experts have been working in the CO-CARBON project in Aalto University. CO-CARBON is an interdisciplinary research project that quantifies and models the carbon sequestration and storage of urban green spaces and creates solutions for planning, implementing, and managing carbon-smart urban green infrastructure. CO-CARBON released new policy recommendations for cities last May 2023. The research group consists of researchers from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, Häme University of Applied Sciences, Aalto University, University of Helsinki, and University of Copenhagen.

Mari Ariluoma is a landscape architect, partner at Nomaji, and a doctoral researcher. Her research focuses on the design and planning aspects of carbon-wise urban green spaces. Her publications have tackled urban green at different levels and scales, from woody vegetation to the importance of soil, growing conditions and maintenance practices.

Caroline Moinel is an architect and doctoral researcher. Her research focuses on the life cycle assessment of urban green spaces which ties to environmental impacts of manufacturing, constructing and maintenance urban green spaces. LCA is commonly used in the building sector but not yet fully adapted in the landscape planning side.

There will be time for questions and discussion after the presentation.

Please remember to register for the event.
