Sep 2017 – Present
Frequent and intense rainfall, floods and drought are intensifying due to climate change. To cope with such extreme weather and climate conditions within urban areas, cities are developing Blue-Green Infrastructures (BGIs) such as green corridors or rainwater reservoirs. In the BEGIN project 10 cities and 6 research institutes have joined forces in a city learning network aimed to design and implement BGI solutions as well as share learnings and best practices.
The Erasmus Governance Design Studio supports the cities by identifying, designing and advising on tools and practices that stimulate social innovation processes amongst the variety of stakeholders involved in the BGI initiatives.
