We’re taking part in a European climate change adaptation project called ‘Nature Smart Cities across the 2 Seas’.
The project is part of the Interreg 2 Seas European Territorial Cooperation Programme. Its main aim is to enable local authorities to self-finance green infrastructure investments.
Seven cities, a regional association, and three academic institutions from the UK, France, the Netherlands, and Belgium are also involved.
Each city partner will deliver a green infrastructure investment pilot project. Ours is the Cambridge Canopy project, an urban forest initiative.
