October 2020 – URBAG Newsletter

18 October 2020



Welcome to URBAG’s first newsletter.
You are receiving this newsletter because you signed up through our website or you have collaborated with us and showed interest in the project. We plan to share twice a year the most relevant milestones of the URBAG project. If you want more frequent updates you can regularly visit our site and follow our twitter account.

URBAG’s project:
URBAG aims to find out how urban green infrastructures can be most efficient in contributing to urban sustainability. We will evaluate which combinations of urban, peri-urban agriculture and green spaces result in the best performance in terms of local and global environmental impact. For this purpose, we will use novel and comprehensive analysis that will integrate the lifecycle impacts of the resources required for green infrastructures with the understanding of how green infrastructures impact the urban atmosphere interaction. For more details we invite you to visit the project section in our site.

URBAG team:
For any project to succeed it is important to have a great team. We introduce our gorgeous team and we invite you to know them in more detail by visiting our team section on our site.
