About the Project

URBAN GreenUP develops, applies and validates a methodology for Renaturing Urban Plans to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air quality and water management and increase the sustainability of our cities through innovative nature-based solutions.

Three front-runner cities – Valladolid (ES), Liverpool (UK), Izmir (TR) – and five fellow cities – Mantua (IT), Ludwigsburg (DE), Medellin (CO), Chengdu (CN) and Quy Nhon (V) – are involved in the project.

ICONS contributed to the development and launch of the NBS manifesto sustaining the green urban transition.
