Green Infrastructure 4 Green Future
This event is organised by the Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation (Zavod RS za varstvo narave), EUSALP Action Group 7 (co-lead), in cooperation with the Slovenian Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning.
Green infrastructure is a topic that is increasingly mentioned by the professionals and the mediawithin EUSALP countries and in wider territory. What is Green Infrastructure (GI) all about? Is it yet another “green flicker” ordothe numerous activities in this field really bring better solutions for a greener, sustainable and more resilient society that builds on natural capital and respect for nature?
Implementation of EUStrategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) was launchedin 2016 and concrete implementation steps are on the way, including activities within the project AlpGov1. EUSALP Action Group 72is working in the fields of Ecological connectivity and Green Infrastructure(GI)aiming at developing Alpine green infrastructure in the whole EUSALP territory, constantly spreading the network of cooperating actors. In parallelto the AG7 work, many activities on different government levels and project from EU programs have been implemented on the ground, with the content that seems related to GI. Even though this might not be visible at first sight, it is possiblethat many project results are directly contributing to the implementation of the Green Infrastructure concept in EUSALP and wider territory.Theamount and size of results is growing so it is difficult to have anoverview. For this reason, it is necessaryto exchange results and experiences in order to jointly work toward the common goals, including the implementation of GI network.
