URBAN GreenUP

is a EU-funded project which 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.
