The URBAN GreenUP project was featured in a report by the Council of Europe as an example of how Nature Based Solutions provide environmental, social and economic benefits and help cities become more resilient
The city of Liverpool, frontrunner of the URBAN GreenUP project, recently contributed to a report that has been prepared in the framework of Council of Europe activities for the implementation of the European Landscape Convention.
The report, whose title is “Urban landscapes and climate change: the contribution of Landscape Architects to improve the quality of life” was presented to the 11th Council of Europe Conference of the European Landscape Convention which took place in Strasbourg, on 26 and 27 May 2021.
The document focuses on the role that landscape and Landscape Architects can play in improving the quality of life in cities and managing the climate crisis.
Within the different landscape solutions, the report dedicated one chapter to the role of Nature in Cities and Nature-Based Solutions (NBS). In this chapter, the URBAN GreenUP project was featured as an example of how NBS provide environmental, social and economic benefits and help cities become more resilient.
A short explanation of the solutions implemented in the Front Runner cities (Liverpool, Izmir and Valladolid) were also included, together with a table presenting the range of possible NBS (extracted from the URBAN GreenUP project).
