Arbo­Ci­ty­Net (ACN) is an inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry Swiss net­work that builds bridges bet­ween green space-rela­ted edu­ca­tio­nal and research ins­ti­tu­tions, asso­cia­tions, autho­ri­ties, the pri­vate sec­tor, owners and users in cities and agglomerations. 

What does ACN offer?


Creates an easi­ly acces­sible web plat­form for the ongoing inter­ac­tions and exchanges bet­ween all inter­es­ted par­ties invol­ved in Urban Forestry. 


Sti­mu­lates the mutual and dee­pe­ned exchange of expe­rience and know­ledge bet­ween admi­nis­tra­tion, science and prac­tice, such as best prac­tices, in per­io­dic par­ti­ci­pa­to­ry events.


Brings toge­ther a diver­si­ty of sta­ke­hol­ders stem­ming from dif­ferent levels (muni­ci­pal, regio­nal and natio­nal) who have spe­cia­lize in sub-aspects of urban fores­try in the fra­me­work of a think tank.


Enables the trans­fer of know­ledge from and to inter­na­tio­nal net­works (e.g., EFUF).

Strategic objectives

Arbo­Ci­ty­Net brings toge­ther dif­ferent dis­ci­plines wor­king in the field of Urban Fores­try. The net­work is very attrac­tive thanks to the com­pe­tences and strengths of its members.

The net­work offers the pos­si­bi­li­ty of an inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry exchange among its members.

The inter­ac­tion bet­ween applied research, deve­lop­ment, prac­tice & admi­nis­tra­tion is a strength of ArboCityNet.

Arbo­Ci­ty­Net is ancho­red in Swit­zer­land and contri­butes to regio­nal net­wor­king, and is inter­na­tio­nal­ly reco­gni­zed as an attrac­tive network.

Arbo­Ci­ty­Net offers Swiss cities a plat­form for dis­cus­sing upco­ming chal­lenges with com­petent people from science and practice.

Arbo­Ci­ty­Net deve­lops par­ti­ci­pa­to­ry events and small pro­jects (e.g., CAS Urban Fores­try) to pro­mote outreach acti­vi­ties among mem­bers and beyond.

ACN lives through the active par­ti­ci­pa­tion of its mem­bers: send us your contri­bu­tions, infor­ma­tion on confe­rences, pro­jects and lite­ra­ture tips, etc.
