The project GreenIn Cities

In January LAND started together with other 30 partners a new European research action funded by the Horizon Europe programme: The project GreenIn Cities.

The project GreenIn Cities, which responded to the call “HORIZON-MISS-2023-CLIMA-CITIES-01-01 – Urban greening and re-naturing for urban regeneration, resilience and climate neutrality”, is coordinated by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and by 2027 will demonstrate holistic data-driven co-creative approaches in nature-based solutions towards climate adaptation and mitigation.

The project aims to develop, test, and validate methodologies and tools aimed to operationalize collaborative climate mitigation and adaptation urban planning approaches and to co-create innovative “greening” and renaturing solutions for regeneration, repurposing, rehabilitation and pollution abatement in deprived areas.

The main challenges that the project will tackle are improving societal readiness level and awareness of vulnerable groups living in deprived areas, including non-human health dimension, leveraging cutting-edge technologies to enhance co-creation process and maximise urban regeneration impacts.

In the project are involved 5 front runner cities and 4 follower cities, which are mostly part of the selected pilots of the EU Mission “Climate-neutral and smart cities”.

LAND is particularly thrilled to support the city of Prato in designing, assessing, and monitoring nature-based solutions across the next years.
