The dissemination activities of the results achieved by the VEG-GAP project continue. On Monday 3 May 2021, ENEA researcher Mihaela Mircea, as project coordinator, will give a lecture at the Politecnico of Milan University entitled "Life Project VEG-GAP: the impact of vegetation on temperature and air quality".
The lecture has been organised as part of teaching activities planned for students on the "European Environmental and Landscape Politics and Projects" course at the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering of the prestigious Milan University, and will also see lively international participation.
Professor Julia Nerantzia Tzortzi, in charge of the course, has decided to expand the already wide range of students involved. In order to do this, she has extended an invitation to participate in other courses at the Politecnico, such as the Master's in "Landscape Architecture" or "Urban design", which are mainly attended by international students from Europe, Asia and South America.The organisers of the event hope to increase the knowledge of future urban planners and architects by showing them the potential of a tool, the information platform of the VEG-GAP project, which will soon provide fundamental data for understanding the real effects of vegetation in cities on temperature and air quality.
