In Milan, on 14th December 2021, from 10.00 to 17.30, at Cascina Cuccagna, the second Project Conference and Networking Event of the VEG-GAP project is held. It will be an opportunity to share the results developed concerning the role of vegetation in the three partner cities: Milan, Bologna, and Madrid.
The VEG-GAP project aims to develop a strategy to provide new reliable information to support the design of air quality plans considering the characteristics of urban vegetation ecosystems. Furthermore, starting from the research done regarding the three-pilot cities, the event will be an occasion to explore and evaluate the potential of Veg Gap study in other cities.
VEG-GAP project is related to other initiatives and projects held by Milan city, such as: Air Quality Plan, Piano di Governo del Territorio 2030, forestry program – Forestami, the Resilience strategy and many other European and national projects.
We will offer a demonstration of these links and of the project's possible future development in other urban areas through the event.
In particular, the day will be divided into two parts:
10.00 - 13.00 _ The cases of Milan, Bologna and Madrid: knowledge learned and results achieved thanks to the Veg-Gap project
The first part of the day will be an opportunity to explore the emission scenarios of vegetation and its direct and indirect impacts on the meteorology and air quality of the city.
14.30 - 17.30 _ Networking to amplify results: the experiences of European Projects for vegetation and air quality
The afternoon of the event will be dedicated to networking with other European and national projects. Here there will be space for the Projects to talk about their advancements, results or methodologies, with the idea of identifying synergies and meeting points with the VEG-GAP project.
