Compatibility of urban green infrastructure and built heritage environments. 01/10/2021 - 30/09/2025


Nature-based solutions in urban environments can help achieving Sustainable Development Goals and those put forward by the European Green Deal. This project scopes the synergy between green infrastructure and the conservation of our built heritage. Using a value-based approach, we investigate how green infrastructure can comply with the quality principles of built heritage conservation, within the limits of technical possibilities. The aim is to provide a decision-making framework to help heritage actors implementing green infrastructure as adaptation and mitigation strategies in heritage environments, making sure that heritage at the core of the urban fabric is playing its active role in the mitigation of environmental challenges.
