Green Cities are Healthier Cities

VARCITIES is an ambitious project that acknowledges the complexity and the challenges of future cities. We set the target to advance innovation across different urban scales by fully exploiting nature-based solutions from a digital, social and cultural perspective.

Pilot Cities

The configuration of the project sees the development of eight applied exemplar pilots (eight European municipalities from different geographic and climate zones).
