European Union Funding
It is estimated that by 2050 up to 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. The systemic integration of social, cultural, digital and nature-based innovation in the design and development of public space has a tremendous potential to transform these urban areas into diverse, accessible, safe, inclusive, and high quality green areas that increase well-being and health.
The European Commission is funding visionary and integrated solutions to improve well-being and health in cities by reducing climate-related risks, pollution (including noise), environmental stress, and social tensions. Proposals should demonstrate how the integration of these solutions into innovative land-use management, urban design, and planning could reduce health-related environmental burdens in socially deprived neighbourhoods, foster equitable access for all to public spaces, enhance their quality and use, and promote sustainable urban mobility patterns.
Proposals should be submitted no later than February 19, 2019. To learn more about this funding opprotuinity, click here
