Descrizione del progetto
The overarching objective of GOGREEN ROUTES is to position European cities as world ambassadors of urban sustainability.
Our inspirational approach shifts the focus of NBS towards what have been previously described as the cobenefits to health and well-being. GOGREEN ROUTES transdisciplinary consortium will pioneer a unique approach augmenting NBS, urban design and land-use management with the goal of fostering a positive human-nature relationship, flourishing nature connectedness and promoting citizen engagement through digital, educational and behavioural innovation. GOGREEN ROUTES components focus on nature-based enterprise (“Grow”), sustainable physical activity ("Move"), digital, cultural (“Feel”) and knowledge innovation (“Know”).
GOGREEN ROUTES cultivates mental health and well-being by optimising human-nature interactions, through innovations that employ authentic nature contact and technological nature. These innovations will increase the uptake and acceptability of NBS across “Cultivating Cities” (Burgas, Lahti, Limerick, Tallinn, Umea & Versailles), “Seed Cities” (Munich, Murcia & Malta) and a “Cross-Pollination Network” (Beijing City Lab, Tblisi). An urban well-being lab, based on the living lab methodology will optimise a learning by sharing approach.
To advance knowledge, best practice and dissemination GOGREEN ROUTES will cluster with H2020 projects and related actions (e.g. COST 17133 NBS and the circular economy) including those involving our partners (e.g. proGIreg, bluehealth2020, Connecting Nature).
In addition, linking all open-sourced data to the OPPLA and Think Nature Hubs, delivering a Urban Well-Being Toolkit (Online resource) and empowering citizens in an iterative process of co-creation will ensure perpetuation beyond the end of the project.
This novel approach, coupled with the high capacity of the consortium, makes GOGREEN ROUTES an exciting prospect.
