The workshop has been designed as a moment of reflection and discussion within the Municipality of Milan, and is aimed at those in the administration of the Lombardy capital with specific technical and urban planning expertise who deal with fundamental issues for the sustainable development of the city. On the one hand, the European project LIFE VEG GAP through the contributions coming from the workshop "Methods and tools to analyse the impact of vegetation on temperature and air quality in the city of Milan" will be able to receive feedback on the usefulness of the results achieved so far for the plans and objectives of its "pilot city". On the other hand, the participants will have the opportunity to make their recommendations and learn more about the functioning of one of the main outputs of the VEG-GAP project, its information platform.
Expertise in the fields of air quality, how to mitigate and adapt to climate change through green areas and green regeneration and, more generally, in the environmental and energy transition, will make the information on the links between vegetation, temperature and air pollution provided by the VEG-GAP platform increasingly useful for the development of effective and efficient urban air quality plans.
The Workshop will be an opportunity to discuss, question, raise issues and make suggestions, and represents the second stage of a roadmap that will soon see the third "pilot city" involved in the VEG-GAP Project: Madrid.
