GreenSpace – Issue 5

GreenSpace

Newsletter of the GreenInfraNet project

July 2014 | Print | Periodical

The Green Infrastructure Network is a partnership of 12 regions from across Europe. The partners are working together to promote the development and implementation of green infrastructure by exchanging experience and expertise, and by identifying, analysing and transferring good practice related to green infrastructure policies.

The editorial in issue 5 describes the efforts being made by the European Commission to protect the ecosystem services that contribute to human wellbeing. As knowledge and information are recognised as key to preserving ecosystem benefits, the issue reports on progress made in the creation of the project’s European Network for Green Infrastructure Knowledge and Experience (ENGINE), which will be established by the end of 2014. The newsletter also contains reports from several workshops and study visits and summarises the status of best practice transfers between project partner regions.

The Green Infrastructure Network project is implemented with the contribution of the REC's Environmental Financing Topic Area. It is co-financed by the European Union's European Regional Development Fund and made possible by the INTERREG IVC Programme.
