Aqua Naturae in collaboration with CARTIF Technology Center
We are happy to announce that we have initiated collaborative efforts with CARTIF Technology Center. They strive for "CONTINUOS INNOVATION TOWARDS NEW HORIZONS" and do groundbreaking work within the cityscapes implementing nature based solutions!
This is a EU-funded project which aims to develop, apply and validate a methodology for Renaturing Urban Plans to mitigate the effects of climate change, improve air quality and water management and increase the sustainability of our cities. All of this has a basis in Nature based solutions. This is just what the world needs now.

CARTIF is the project coordinator of the URBAN GreenUP. Nature-based solutions are at the heart of URBAN GreenUP Renaturing Urban Plans. These are grouped into four complementary categories. #Re-naturing urbanization #Singular green infrastructure #Waterinterventions #Non technical interventions
The three runner cities Liverpool, Valladolid and Izmir are regenerating their urban environment with nature-based-solutions and will demonstrate and validate the URBAN GreenUP methodology. Five other cities will follow and enhance the replication potential at European and international level. These cities are Chengdu, Ludwigsburg, Mantova, Medellin and Quy Nhon in Vietnam.
Aqua Naturae is looking forward to designing restoration projects in this joint venture. There will be research and development projects in various countries. For 2021 there will be a strong focus on biodiversity regeneration. We will keep you updated! Meanwhile, have a good weekend! Sincerely yours, Ane Mari Aakernes
