About this Event

What is Biodiversity Sensitive Urban Design (BSUD)?

BSUD is a relatively new approach to urban biodiversity conservation which focuses on urban design. The aim is to create suburbs that are a net benefit to native species and ecosystems by providing essential habitat and food resources. It recognises the importance of well-designed and managed urban areas in conserving native flora and fauna, with significant links to maintaining the health and wellbeing of the community and on mitigating some of the impacts of climate change.

An essential part of BSUD is an integrated planning approach that draws on a range of disciplines, perspectives and knowledge such as: Traditional Kaurna knowledge and other First Nations groups, planners, ecologists, hydrologists, landscape architects, developers, community groups, community engagement experts, researchers, etc.

It can also overlap with the concept of urban greening depending on the project. Urban greening usually aims to increase vegetation cover to provide more livable landscapes, however BSUD aims to achieve specific biodiversity conservation outcomes. Over time the overlap is likely to increase as we better understand our local environments, communities and the needs of each.



Workshop

The workshop will help you better understand BSUD and include presentations by the researchers who designed the framework - Georgia Garrard (University of Melbourne) and Sarah Bekessy (RMIT) - as well as case studies and group discussions.

This will be a great opportunity to meet and learn from the researchers, as well as network with other people and potentially create some awesome collaborative projects!



Case studies

As part of the workshop we would like to work through potential local project ideas and discuss what the barriers and opportunities might be to incorporate BSUD into the landscape. If you have a project idea for a specific location, ideally something within the urban fabric, that you would like to be considered for a case study and group discussion, please submit a few dot points (background, objectives) and map to [email protected] by COB Monday 2nd August.
