Synergy Workshop: Urban Green Belts
In the scope of the INTERREG Central Europe project “Urban Green Belts” transferable smart models for green space assessment and management are developed. Partners from 7 countries elaborate methods and tools in the thematic working groups on geographical information science, community involvement and multi-stakeholder governance. The focus in the functional urban area of Salzburg is on innovative GIS-based solutions.
This synergy workshop aimed at discussing current research and getting insight into innovative approaches for inventory, assessment and management of green infrastructure in functional urban areas in a transnational context. This encompassed the preservation of natural ecosystem functions, the amelioration of social and recreational functions and the contribution to quality of life as well as maintenance and capitalization strategies. This session was planned as discussion forum with short presentations/introductory speeches (5 min) at the beginning.
The aim was to interconnect current projects, collect and exchange knowledge on best practices and thus create research and development ideas with focus on adequate green supply for inhabitancy, mitigation of climate change effects and smart tools for green management, community involvement and governance.
Target groups encompassed researchers in the field of urban and landscape planning with special interest in green spaces as well as professionals in public administration, planning and industry.
