URBAN GreenUP

Objective of mitigating the effects of climate change

Description

URBAN GreenUP is a project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme. Its objective is the development, application and replication of Renaturing Urban Plans in a European and non-European cities with the aim to mitigate the climate change effects, improve air quality and water management, as well as to increase the sustainability of our cities through innovative nature-based solutions.
3 runner cities – Valladolid, Liverpool and Izmir – will validate and demonstrate the effectiveness of the URBAN GreenUP methodology. 5 follower cities, Mantova, Ludwigsburg, Medellin, Chengdu and Binh Dinh-Quy Nhon, will set up their own Renaturing Urban Plans to replicate the Project strategy.

 

 

Objectives

  • The URBAN GreenUP project will improve the quality of life in urban areas, raise awareness of the importance of preserving the environment among citizens, generate new market opportunities for European companies internationally and promote the creation of transnational networks and synergies .

Actions

  • Develop and demonstrate a replicable renaturation methodology
  • Involve citizens, local authorities and stakeholders in the co-design of their city renewal plans
  • Promote the creation of a global NBS market and support the EU’s international cooperation
  • Implement more than 100 different NBS in the three leading cities.

Expected results

  • Through the more than 100 NBS to be implemented, it is expected to achieve a wide variety of impacts related to better rainwater management, reduce the heat island effect, carbon sequestration from the atmosphere and avoid CO2 emissions among other impacts that are also related to social justice and a better distribution of urban spaces.
