METREXmonthly talk from two of the Partners of EU project LUIGI − Linking Urban and Inner-Alpine Green Infrastructures – which focused on future-oriented solutions to enhance ecosystem services and green infrastructure networks.
Daniele Zucchelli, Local Economic development Manager, Città Metropolitana di Milano, gave an overview of the LUIGI project and its aims to strengthen green infrastructures and ecosystem services.
Dr. Michele Coletti, Associate Professor, Dept. Management, Technology & Strategy, Grenoble Ecole de Management, provided a case study about the LUIGI work in action, covering issues that came up locally, such as involving civil society in policy making, with examples from Green Infrastructure.
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.
