Session 16. SIGS: Successful Implementing the Greening of Cities
Lessons learnt from collaboration among 25 Dutch public and private key stakeholders
Successful Implementation of Green Urban Development (Dutch acronym: SIGS) is a Wageningen University & Research project (2020-2023) committed to improving the implementation of functional vegetation in urban development and renovation. Its goal is to provide professionals with the applied green city knowledge to be used in the policy, planning, design, realization and maintenance phase. With 25 public and private partners, practical pilots in cities like Amsterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven, and close collaboration with project developers and designers, the project addresses main issues and solutions in the efforts to make cities greener. In this session we present tools, approaches and recent insights.
