[PORTO] URBiNAT Consortium partners meet to assess advanced Healthy Corridor implementation plans
Porto Innovation Hub
In the beginning of April, Emma Björner and Laura Ohler from IKED, a consortium partner of URBiNAT, visited Porto city for two days. Together with Ana Ferreira, from Porto Municipality, they conducted a series of interviews with different companies, associations and municipal projects, all related to the implementation of nature-based solutions (NBS). A central purpose was to better understand nature-based enterprises, and related core values, business models, ambitions and goals. The aim was also to gain insight on how NBS are implemented, to promote urban regeneration and create better and safer living conditions for citizens.
The organisations interviewed focus on the creation of sustainable urban parks (Asprela park), urban forests (FUN project), urban farms (Noocity), green roofs and walls (ANCV Green Roofs), sustainable and inclusive festivals (Cidade +), and other topics that make a difference in the city and to its citizens. The results will be compiled into business cases for the most marketable and bankable NBS.
This will be a base to support and inspire projects that were born during URBiNAT’s participatory process, other cities in URBiNAT, as well as URBiNAT’s greater Community of Practice. We hope to share outputs of the visit soon. Stay tuned!

4.2: Healthy Corridor Concept - PORTO
The “Healthy corridor Concept” aims to establish the general framework of the healthy corridor urban plan (part 1) and present its application in the three front runners by the local task force: Porto (part 2), Nantes (part 3), Sofia (part 4). The general framework redefines the concepts, principles and the methodologies related with the healthy corridor urban plan, taking in consideration previous deliverables and integrating the experience acquired in the cities during the co-creation process
