Today I am extremely happy and proud to announce that SPIRE – Baia Mare's project proposal to the 4th Call of the Urban Innovative Actions that I co-designed with Urbasofia – is one of the 20 out of 175 projects selected for financing under Sustainable Use of Land & Nature-Based Solutions category by the UIA Secretariat!
The project SPIRE - Smart Post-Industrial Regenerative Ecosystem will strive to create a local value system based on key ecosystem services, adaptive phytoremediation and innovative land-use management, for kick starting a smart postindustrial reuse process. The solution includes innovative planning and land-management instruments for regenerating the formerly industrial sites, renaturalisation of contaminated land by long-term phytoremediation process and enabling new bio-based economic development opportunities supported by active participatory approaches to co-create and promote environmentally-friendly actions and behaviours.
