The Urban Forum of the UK-Man and the Biosphere Committee is a network of people, including ecologists, artists, managers, planners and researchers, involved with the environment and nature conservation in urban areas.

Its distinctive contribution to this goal is integrated thinking.

It seeks to raise awareness; stimulate research; influence policy; improve the design and management of urban systems and push urban nature conservation up the social and political agenda.

Members of the Urban Forum come from a wide variety of backgrounds, from ecologists to academics and journalists, from NGOs to local authorities, government agencies and private consultancies, from those primarily concerned with conserving "nature" - plants, wildlife, biodiversity - to those who work with people and deal with the human impact of green space.
