LOS_DAMA! - Green infrastructure for better living

Shared by: 
Action Group 7 - Green infrastructure


The globally attractive Alpine Space cities face common challenges through growing land use pressure. LOS_DAMA!" Landscape and Open Space Development in Alpine Metropolitan Areas" focuses on the `unspectacular´Alpine landscapes on our doorsteps. These valuable green spaces in and around our cities are exposed to heavy pressures and a variety of demands. We are therefore cooperating to protect liveable open spaces while also connecting people and green spaces throughout the Alpine region.


Work Packages and Outputs

LOS_DAMA! will unleash the potential of peri-urban green infrastructure for sustainable development by improving governance and planning. The project will boost the skilled use of advanced tools for negotiation, mediation, and action.

For innovation and impact, LOS_DAMA! will bridge the implementation gap by employing co-creation and informal, creative approaches like participative mapping and landscape stewardship in seven pilot areas. We are collaborating with stakeholders and citizens.
