Peer review publication: Co-creation of healthy corridors: a participatory approach to the circular city
URBiNAT researchers Gonçalo Canto Moniz, Beatriz Caitana da Silva, Isabel Ferreira, Marco Acri, Américo Mateus, Susana Leonor have co-authored a chapter on “Co-creation of healthy corridors: a participatory approach to the circular city” published in the book Reconnecting the city with nature and history – Towards circular regeneration strategies.
In their chapter, Gonçalo Canto Moniz, Beatriz Caitana da Silva, Isabel Ferreira, Marco Acri, Américo Mateus, Susana Leonor explore the contribution of the healthy corridor concept as a cluster of nature-based solutions (NBS) and of the co-creation methodology as a process that generates commitment to the circular city debate.
They discuss the URBiNAT project funded under HORIZON 2020, that proposes the co-creation of healthy corridors to respond to the challenges of the social housing neighbourhoods of seven European cities. A thorough investigation into the URBiNAT pillars, namely NBS, citizen engagement, inclusive public space, and social and solidarity economy, highlight the factual circularity of its processes and the final urban plans proposed, making a de facto contribution to the debate on the model of the circular city, which re-connects city with nature.
The chapter is part of the first part of the book: Section 1 on “Enlarging the traditional economic approach in urban planning”
Reconnecting the city with nature and history
Towards circular regeneration strategies
Cities need nature and also their history to be able to face tremendous challenges, adapting to new contexts, changing them, making memories of the adaptations and then learning from them. This book is about the sustainable development of cities and their role in meeting the challenges facing humanity today. It addresses a wide array of important contemporary urban issues, from a regenerative, circular and smart perspective.
