The Alps are characterized by a variety of natural, agricultural, and small urban areas, where the connectivity between natural and semi-natural ecosystems is not always ensured. One of the most effective ways to support ecosystem services is implementing Green Infrastructure (GI) at local scale, but they are still scattered in rural and peri-urban areas. Building on the solutions developed by the LUIGI project, FRACTAL involves local stakeholders in the implementation of green infrastructure. The goal is to standardize the requirements to plan GI at municipality level, as well as to develop an education toolkit in order to raise awareness among citizens and pupils.

Toolkit for formal and non-formal education on the role of GIThe innovative educational toolkit contains an infographic, a movie, a board game, and an illustrated booklet for pupils and students. The movie will be a mute short film. The board game will be a “serious game” to experiment the relevance of GI to face climate change in the alpine context. It will be freely downloadable & developed with 2 expansions so to be used at different school levels and in non-formal contexts. It will be disseminated in 4 languages (EN, ITA, DE, SLO).
Transalpine GI PactThe GI Pact is a jointly produced document arising from the participatory approach developed in Activity 1.3, and from the D 1.3.1. It will contain a set of GI-based solutions for municipalities and for the agricultural sector. The Pact will be delivered to the administrations and each PA, by signing the Pact, will commit itself in implementing the proposed solutions in a defined timeframe.
