Metropolitan City of Milan, leader of the Interreg Alpine Space LUIGI project, is pleased to invite you to the final conference, entitled “Living your Green Infrastructure” will be held in Milan on 13th, 14th and 15th June 2022.
The event will be a unique opportunity for an international comparison on the subject of ecological transition, starting from the project results. The partners of the 6 regions involved will be the direct protagonists of speeches and discussions on topics of great interest with important guests from the Alpine region. The final conference of LUIGI will be held in presence and online.
Orchards, forests, rivers, green paths… There is a great variety of spaces connecting mountain ecosystems and urban centres. Each of these natural or semi-natural spaces, also referred as green infrastructures, brings environmental, economical and societal benefits: supply of food, water, materials, recreation areas, pollination, climate regulation… It is precisely this wide range of benefits, called ecosystem services, that LUIGI explores and intends to strengthen in alpine, rural and urban areas.
LUIGI − Linking Urban and Inner-Alpine Green Infrastructures − is a project of the European Union, approved on the fourth INTERREG V B tender of the Alpine Space Programme. It gathers 14 partners across 6 alpine countries, working together on future-oriented solutions to enhance ecosystem services and green infrastructure networks.
