Greenery

The SUN project’s urban neighbourhoods, with their industrial era legacies, suffer from a deficit of environmental quality and in particular of green spaces, in comparison with other districts. As the benefits of nature in town require no further demonstration (air quality, temperature control, general well-being, quality of the landscape, and so on),  the SUN project will seek to reinforce the presence of nature in the districts that are involved. As land recycling for the creation of new green spaces is not easy in practice, one possibility will be to green the fringe between the public and the private domain (frontages, blind façades, etc). This exercise will be difficult for the cities to manage on their own, but with the participation of the residents, it will become possible. Each district will nevertheless have to find, through exchanges organised at local and euregional levels, its own greening strategy.
