ProGIreg uses nature for urban regeneration with and for citizens.
ProGIreg stands for ‘productive Green Infrastructure for post-industrial urban regeneration’: nature for renewal. The project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and will run from June 2018 until 2023.
Front-runner cities and their Living Labs
Dortmund (Germany), Turin (Italy), Zagreb (Croatia) and Ningbo (China) host Living Labs where innovative new nature-based solutions are co-developed and tested with the communities living there.
Local ownership and participation
Local communities of the Living Labs are central to this project and involved at all stages from design to implementation. Since there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ model, local knowledge is essential for local adaptation of the nature-based solutions. A key aim is therefore to push-start citizen-ownership, so that impact is long-term and benefits future generations.
Sharing the knowledge
In addition to the cities, a global network of observer cities, NGOs, research institutions, the private sector and individual citizens and activists will have the opportunity to learn from the project. Key aims are to spread awareness of the potential of nature-based solutions, promote market up-take and to feed the results into EU policies and strategies, so that nature-based solutions become the norm and not the exception.
