URBAN GreenUP

aims at developing, applying and validating a methodology for Renaturing Urban Plans to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air quality and water management and increase the sustainability of our cities through innovative nature-based solutions.

Cooperation Manifesto

How

Nature-based solutions are at the heart of URBAN GreenUP Renaturing Urban Plans. These are grouped into four complementary categories.

Where

Three runner cities regenerating their urban environment with nature-based-solutions will demonstrate and validate the URBAN GreenUP methodology. Five follower will enhance the replication potential at European and international level.
