The project Climate Mitigation through Nature-Based Solutions in Urban Poland (Climate NBS Poland) realised by the Sendzimir Foundation in partnership with the Ecologic Institute from Berlin from October 2018 till November 2020 thanks to funding from GIZ on behalf of the government of the Federal Republic of Germany.
On October 6-7, 2020 our partner – Croatia Green Building Council – organized in Zagreb an expert seminar inaugurating the project “Mitigation of climate change in historic buildings”. During the seminar, experts representing various groups of project stakeholders shared their experiences and insights on mitigating climate change through revitalization and energy renovation of heritage buildings in Poland and Croatia.
In September 2020, we started the implementation of a new project financed by the Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to support cities from Europe and Latin America in effective restoration and rehabilitation of urban ecosystems to make cities more livable, resilient and inclusive. The project creates many mechanisms for the exchange of experiences and active cooperation, both at the local, regional and global level.
At the beginning of September we started a new project in cooperation with Croatian Green Building Council that will contribute to an increased understanding, acceptance and uptake of climate friendly solutions and renovation procedures in historical buildings among municipal decision makers and key experts.
On August 24-26, our partner Ecologic Institute organized a study visit to Berlin – a city where 80% of rainwater is retained where it falls! The event was aimed at decision-makers representing local governments from all over Poland, engaged in the Climate NBS project.
Joint European-Chinese Collaborative Learning project on the role of Urban Forest nature-based solutions (UF-NBS) for sustainable urbanisation and resilient cities, launched at the beginning of September 2019. Sendzimir Foundation is among 27 partner institutions realising the project. It is a project on urban forests and nature-based solutions with the aim to enhance the resilience of cities that are facing major environmental, socio-economic and cultural transitions and challenges.
The aim of the project is to initiate dialogue and exchange of experience on the management of green areas in cities. In order to develop a sustainable, cross-sectoral, partnership-based cooperation and exchange of experience between entities involved in the creation and management of urban green areas and other stakeholders.
