INTERLACE – International Cooperation to Restore and Connect Urban Environments in Latin America and Europe

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 levels.

The consortium of the project, coordinated by the Ecologic Institute from Berlin, includes several scientific institutions, companies and non-governmental organisations, including the Sendzimir Foundation. Among the six partner agglomerations who play a key role in the project, the Krakow Metropolis can be found.

The project is financed under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme (contract No. 869324). Its implementation period is September 2020 to August 2024.

The project is divided into the following work packages:

WP1. Foundations for Inclusive Collaboration

WP2. Governing restorative NBS in cities

WP3. Tools for the assessment of restorative NBS

WP4. City-to-city exchange through multilevel city network accelerators

WP5. INTERLACE Hub for Innovation and Outreach

Tomasz Bergier, PhD is the scientific project coordinator on behalf of the Sendzimir Foundation.
