Green infrastructure solutions are essential factors in climate change adaptation and reaching carbon neutrality goals in cities. The goal of B.Green is to find innovative approaches to support the pre-planning and implementation of new, multifunctional green infrastructure solutions within the urban planning context in the Baltic Sea region.
By developing the B.Green model for data-driven and participatory urban planning, the project aims to communicate the benefits of green infrastructure to all levels of stakeholders. New solutions are tested and developed by using digital and virtual tools together with residents and experts in Helsinki and Tallinn.
The pilots will be carried out in Kalasatama district in Helsinki and in Pollinator Highway – a species-rich linear park and movement corridor in Tallinn.
The project is carried out by Forum Virium Helsinki, project partners include Tallinn City and SEI Tallinn. The total budget of the project is 1 302 618 € and the duration of the project is 01.02.2020 – 31.12.2022.
B.Green is funded by the Interreg Central Baltic Programme.
In 2021 a survey was organised by the B.Green project. The goal of the survey was to map the attitudes and insights of Helsinki and Tallinn residents related to green infrastructure planning and participatory methods. It focused on two related projects: Kalasatama in Helsinki and the Pollinator Highway in Tallinn.
