Emile Forest joins the UNESCO Chair in Urban Landscape as a research officer


Trained in architecture, urban planning and sociology, Emile has developed a fascination for landscapes and the people who inhabit them. He worked between 2015 and 2020 for the Enclume, a territorial development workshop. He then joined the firm Dark Matter Labs, where he piloted various projects in public governance, urban planning regulations and environmental finance until 2022. He is now the general coordinator of Nouveaux Voisins, an organization that aims to imagine, plant and promote landscapes rich in biodiversity and thus rethink our relationship to nature in the city.

As a practical trainer and research officer associated with the UNESCO Chair in Urban Landscape, Emile works mainly on the development of design workshops and educational approaches. He is also involved in research projects that combine urban ecology strategies, public policy development and the use of new technologies, such as the action-research project on the urbanization of large rivers: Fluvialities.
