The project “Green Cities with Smart Citizens (Greenvolve)” is a two-year project co-funded by the European Union under the ERASMUS+ KA220-ADU – Cooperation partnerships in adult education programme (Agreement Number: 2021-1-HU01-KA220-ADU-000033719).
Greenvolve project aims to incorporate knowledge on green city as well as competences on active citizenship by focusing on two main pillars: 1) Green city elements and 2) Public consultations and other forms of city engagement. We would like to empower 18-65-year-old citizens in these fields in order to be able to shape urban design efficiently and improve their awareness on how to act responsibly in participatory decision-making which can affect them directly. Aware and open-minded citizens can be involved successfully in urban decision-making and, thus, contribute to their own greener, cleaner and healthier environment, neighbourhood and city. Thus, we believe that WE CAN ONLY HAVE GREEN CITIES WITH SMART CITIZENS.
In order to incorporate the knowledge on green city and active citizenship comprehensively, the partnership will create a handbook, a toolkit, two databases and an online learning platform to support the target audience’s better understanding.
