On January 31, 2023, a meeting was held to mark the launch of the LIFECOOLCITY project - use of remote sensing for management of blue-green infrastructure in the process of city adaptation to climate change.
It was the first opportunity for all partners - both from Poland and Germany - to meet face-to-face and talk about the challenges ahead, plan the implementation of individual activities and get to know each other better. In a workshop atmosphere, the participants discussed, among other things, a detailed work plan for the coming months, learned about the guidelines for reporting the effects of their activities, and decided on the visual identity of the project.
The meeting was attended by representatives of all partners:
With the beginning of the year, the LIFECOOLCITY project (Use of remote sensing for management of blue-green infrastructure in the process of city adaptation to climate change) was launched. The purpose of the project's activities is to enhance the adaptive capacity of cities to the effects of anthropogenic climate change and bring them closer to the model of smart cities of the future.
The consortium's actions will focus on supporting the management of blue-green infrastructure (BGI) in 10,000 cities in the European Union by implementing innovative systems that utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing (satellite and aerial imagery).
The first city for which a BGI reconstruction concept will be developed based on the project's products will be Wrocław, Poland.
The project is being jointly implemented by seven organizations:
The project activities are planned for the years 2023-2029.
