GoGreenRoutes - GO GREEN: Resilient Optimal Urban natural, Technological and Environmental Solutions

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

GoGreenRoutes is a €10.5m EU-funded project sowing the seeds for increased nature-connectedness across Europe, Latin America and China.

Its multidisciplinary consortium of 40 organisations is pairing participatory approaches and citizen science with Big Data analyses and digital innovation to co-create "Urban Well-being Labs" in six “Cultivating Cities”: Burgas (Bulgaria), Lahti (Finland), Limerick (Ireland), Tallinn (Estonia), Umeå (Sweden) and Versailles (France).

These pioneering cities are implementing “nature-based solutions” such as green corridors, linear parks, pocket parks and shared walkways to enhance the physical and mental health of their urban residents. By maximizing the available public space people can move around the city more actively, enjoy their free time and interact with others, whilst there is also room for restoring ecologically valuable spaces.

The project will develop a set of environmental quality indicators and exchange lessons-learnt with a group of "seed cities" (Munich, in Germany, the Region of Murcia, in Spain, and Gzira, in Malta) and a "cross-pollination network" (Mexico City, in Mexico, Beijing, in China, and Tbilisi, in Georgia), who represent large-scale opportunities for the implementation of nature-based solutions.

Metode

Nature-based solutions

Nature-based solutions are actions inspired and supported by nature that simultaneously address societal challenges, provide environmental, social and economic benefits and help build resilience. See HERE the European Commission's definition of nature-based solutions.

GoGreenRoutes’ unique approach shifts the traditional focus of nature-based solutions towards its co-benefits for biological, psychological, social and environmental health (360-Health). The aim is to enhance, identify and monitor positive effects of green spaces on reduced stress levels, mental resilience and social behaviour while using digital innovation to investigate how green corridors impact physical activity.

Active travel, especially through nature or green corridors, has a key role in supporting healthy lifestyles and achieving WHO (World Health Organisation) physical activity targets. The WHO RECOMMENDS access to green space of at least 0.5 hectares in size and no more than 300 m from one's home.

 

360-Health

The 360-Health approach integrates multiple health domains and encompasses perceptions, attitudes and behaviours related to each of them. GoGreenRoutes has a specific focus on mental health and well-being, physical activity, nutrition, sleep, cognition and performance, social health, human-nature interaction and sustainability in relation to urban nature.

As part of GoGreenRoutes, a specific 360-Health indicator set will be developed to assess the many dimensions of health, determine the impact of nature-based interventions on the health of urban populations, and enable cost-benefit analyses of these measures.

Nature-based solutions developed using the 360-Health approach will provide opportunities for reciprocal benefits for the citizens (e.g. addressing health needs) and the environment (e.g. tackling climate change). An urban 360-Health toolkit will be produced to support decision-makers in the implementation of nature-based solutions that will enhance all dimensions of health long-term.

 

Environmental Quality Indicators 

The EQ indicators will inform to the design and engineering of novel nature-based interventions (e.g. design improvements for new and existing nature-based solutions along green routes/spaces) in our European partner cities.

In parallel to accessing existing open-sourced data, extensive local monitoring campaigns (fixed and mobile) will be implemented and analysed in each of the “Cultivating Cities” to provide a baseline assessment of existing green routes, and to quantify the impact of these green interventions.

This will validate the EQ indicators and define how they can guide the creation of more connected and sustainable urban green spaces in other cities.
