Kick-off of CONE project

The conference starting the new project CONE- Cities of Nature: nature-based solutions in Urban Living Labs took place in Padua on June 11-12, 2024. The meeting was organized by the project leader UniSMART, headquartered in Padua. Nearly all partners participated, including representatives from the Association and the Gdańsk University of Technology, who presented the third Polish partner, the City of Wejherowo. It is in this city that the pilot activities will take place. Additionally, the associated partners are: the City and Municipality of Sztum, the City and Municipality of Dzierzgoń, and the City of Tolkmicko, where the Association will conduct a small pilot activity.

The first day of the meeting was dedicated to getting the partners acquainted and revisiting the main project assumptions. The participants were welcomed by Valentina Scandola, the project leader, and Margherita Cera from the Padua City Council. The aim of the project is to create urban living labs to test nature-based solutions. The project will feature three pilot locations in Padua, Wejherowo, and České Budějovice. Additionally, four solutions for replication will be developed, along with a common strategy.

Ms. Anna Boruch, representing the Joint Secretariat of the program, was invited to the conference and discussed the program guidelines regarding the implementation and accounting of the project.
