Hamburg, London and Milan are making nature-based interventions in key districts of their cities for urban regeneration. Through exchange between cities, inclusive collaboration and multi-disciplinary learning, the CLEVER Cities project aims to drive a new kind of nature-based urban transformation for sustainable and socially inclusive cities across Europe, South America and China. The project co-creates, – implements, and -manages locally tailored NBS to deliver tangible social, environmental and economic improvements for urban regeneration.
CLEVER Cities aims to:
- increase and improve local knowledge of nature-based solutions,
- demonstrate that greener cities work better for people and communities,
- contribute data and information to EU policy-making, and ultimately
- promote and enable the uptake of nature-based solutions in urban planning world-wide.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 innovation action programme under grant agreement No 776604.
