Project: Vertical greening for liveable cities - innovation to facilitate the breakthrough of an old concept

Acronym Vertical Green 2.0 (Reference Number: 11166032)
Duration 01/04/2018 - 31/03/2021
Project Topic Vertical green (VG) has a great potential to cool buildings, to recycle and upcycle wastes, rainwater and grey water, to produce food or bio-energy and to generate green spaces nearly everywhere in cities - almost independent of available horizontal space. The project approach the different chances and challenges associated with VG together with citizens affecting or being affected by it in order to maximize VG’s acceptance. We will re-develop VG according to stakeholder needs, e.g. we will adapt it to different architectures, different climates and reduce maintenance costs through automated machinery so that VG may unfold its full positive impacts to as many urban neighbourhoods as possible.
