|The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) and Turkish Ornamental Plants and Products Exporters Association (OAiB) have joined forces to promote Green City concepts on their garden at Expo 2016 Antalya in Turkey.
Designed by award-winning garden designer, Nilufer Danis, the ‘Green Oasis Garden’, which covers over 1,000 square metres, aims to demonstrate the value of ‘living green’ in cities and promote investment in urban greening around the world.
Expo 2016 Antalya expects eight million visitors while it is open from 23 April until 30 October 2016. Visitors to the Green Oasis Garden can see the following concepts in practice:
AIPH Secretary General, Tim Briercliffe, comments, “AIPH believes strongly that cities around the world can use plants and the living landscape to tackle the many social and environmental challenges they face. It is our hope that cities from around the world will use the concepts demonstrated in this garden to improve life for their own citizens. Expo 2016 Antalya will be an amazing event and I would recommend that everyone with an interest in greening the future should visit.”
OAiB President, Osman Bagdatlioglu, adds, “I am proud to have been involved with Expo 2016 Antalya since AIPH first approved it as an A1 International Horticultural Exhibition in 2008. This region of Turkey is developing rapidly as a major producer of ornamentals and we welcome everyone to come and see us this year.”
