Erda RTE co-organised “Green and Blue Urban Infrastructure Innovation for Northern Eurasia. Transfer, Regionalisation, Planning Strategies and Development Directions” Workshop and Roundtable on April 19-20 in Saint Petersburg.
We focused on two objectives. One was to take stock of innovations related to green and blue infrastructure (GBI) in Russian cities, and to understand the factors of success and failures of such innovation projects given a variety of biophysical and socioeconomic contexts across the country. The other one was to understand what other innovation projects successfully implemented in the EU have their chance in Russia, what kind of projects would be useful and relevant in terms of sustainability transition in Russia, and what barriers need to be considered to ensure their success.
To achieve the first objective, we have invited speakers representing academic and non-academic institutions from across Russia with relevant GBI experience and reflections to share. Moderated discussions followed. The second objective was achieved through an exercise where specific GBI innovations recently implemented in the EU were presented to the audience by our EU partners involved in these innovative projects. Audience members provided an insightful feedback reflecting on their diverse academic, professional and regional experience.
