Green infrastructure for better living

The City of Trento involves citizens for improving social and ecological connectivity and accessibility of peri-urban spaces as well as changing the common perception of these areas. The local pilot strategy has three axis: 'exploration' – mapping potentials of open spaces around the urban core (for agriculture, recreation or ecological improvement) and acquiring deeper knowledge; 'cultivation' – including new strategies into planning policies and projects for selected areas and for enhancing the potentials of open spaces; and 'dissemination' – raising interest of stakeholders and involving citizens (and associations or schools).
