The 21st of March we will celebrate the International Day of Forests. This event has been created in 2013 by the General Assembly of the United Nations and this year the theme is “Forest restoration: a path to recovery and well-being”.
In this context, the Project LIFE Clivut deals with urban green areas and the so-called Urban Forest, as mentioned in the National Strategy for Urban Green Areas, evaluating its ecosystem services and with the ambition to create a strategy for the optimization of the management of urban green areas, in order to make them resilient to climate change, which impacts on everyday life.
For this occasion, together with CEA Messina, the LIFE Clivut Team wants to present the progress of the project and explain the importance of green in the urban environment and how to evaluate the ecosystem services to make our cities more resilient.
