The school of thought surrounding the urban ecosystem has increasingly become in vogue among researchers worldwide. Since half of the world’s population lives in cities, urban ecosystem services have become essential to human health and well-being. Rapid urban growth has forced sustainable urban developers to rethink important steps by updating and, to some degree, recreating the human–ecosystem service linkage. This talk addresses topics such as ecosystem services, green infrastructure, nature-based solutions, urban green spaces, edible green infrastructure, human health, and more. It highlights current knowledge, gaps, and future research with the focus on building a sustainable future.
