Abstract The governance of urban forestry comes with special challenges, related to its environmental, social as well as institutional fragmentation. Meanwhile, the role of urban dwellers appears to be crucial for the environmental, social, and institutional resilience of cities. Based on 20 cases studies from across Europe, we investigate how mosaic governance can foster horizontal and vertical integration across cities. Horizontal integration relates to collaborations between active citizens and governments, while horizontal integration relates to the ecological and the social connectedness across the city. Based on this analysis, we argue for developing modes of ‘mosaic governance’ that allow for effective collaborations across the array of people, institutions, and spatial practices associated with active citizenship. Mosaic governance suggest an enabling and stimulating governance style that harnesses the transformative potential of active citizenship to maximise social and environmental outcomes of active citizenship.
