Green Surge

Green Infrastructure and Urban Biodiversity for Sustainable Urban Development and the Green Economy

The GREEN SURGE project is a collaborative project between 24 partners in 11 countries. It is funded by the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

GREEN SURGE will identify, develop and test ways of linking green spaces, biodiversity, people and the green economy in order to meet the major urban challenges related to land use conflicts, climate change adaptation, demographic changes, and human health and wellbeing. It will provide a sound evidence base for urban green infrastructure planning and implementation, exploring the potential for innovation in better linking environmental, social and economic ecosystem services with local communities.

GREEN SURGE invites you to join its European Learning Alliance, a virtual community of urban green infrastructure planners, decision-makers and other experts.
