proGIreg's mid-term conference will take participants for a virtual journey through the proGIreg Turin Living Lab in Mirafiori Sud, explicating the successes and challenges of the regeneration efforts. Join the conference for a chance to learn how to harness nature-based solutions in post-industrial districts together with citizens.
proGIreg is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and will run from June 2018 until 2023. ProGIreg stands for ‘productive Green Infrastructure for post-industrial urban regeneration’: nature for renewal. ProGIreg uses nature-based solutions for urban regeneration with and for citizens.
The dynamic conference will entail three virtual visits with a multitude of stakeholders, interviews, presentations discussions and debates to delve into the pioneering work of the Turin Living Lab.
