VISIONARY NATURE BASED ACTIONS FOR HEATH, WELLBEING & RESILIENCE IN CITIES (VARCITIES)

Project description

A vision for human-centred future cities

In an increasingly urbanised world, governments are focussing on boosting cities’ productivity and improving citizens’ living conditions and quality of life. Despite efforts to transform the challenges facing cities into opportunities, problems such as overburdened social services and health facilities, air pollution and exacerbated heat create a bleak outlook. With these challenges in mind, the EU-funded VARCITIES project aims to create a vision for future cities with the citizen and the so-called human community at the centre. It will therefore implement innovative ideas and add value by creating sustainable models for improving the health and well-being of citizens facing diverse climatic conditions and challenges around Europe. This will be achieved through shared public spaces that make cities liveable and welcoming.
