JUSTNature: Activation of NATURE-based solutions for a JUST low carbon transition

 

How to combine the transition to a low-carbon society with the principles of ecological justice?

 

JUSTNature explores the potential of nature-based solutions (NBS) in different urban environments, with an eye on socio-economical inequalities. The project draws from the assumption that climate change unevenly impacts urban communities, following the patterns of structural disparities. Adaptation and mitigation strategies are thus framed in an Ecological Justice framework, with specific regard to the right to clean air, thermal comfort, thriving biodiversity and ecosystems.
 

Prospex Institute's Role

 

Prospex Institute will analyse and define what urgent needs are addressed by the NbS in each of the seven different European city practice labs (CiPels). By making sure that the various stakeholder coalitions are identified and engaged, PI will lead the CiPels' co-design process and strategy, with consideration for the local existing resources and problems. Collaboratively facilitating this process aims at bringing the power structures to the surface, supporting the configuration of countervailing measures.
