Application of Nature-Based Solutions for local adaptation of educational and social buildings to Climate Change (LIFE-myBUILDINGisGREEN)

Description:

LIFE-myBUILDINGisGREEN aims at increasing the resilience of social and educational buildings by implementing nature-based solutions as prototypes of climate adaptation and improved well-being. More specifically, the project’s goals are to:

  • Improve knowledge on the development, assessment, and monitoring of vulnerability to climate change of buildings by developing and testing a common, ready-to-use method in southern, western, central and northern European regions;
  • Analyze and verify the impact of nature-based solutions as measures to adapt to climate change in three pilot buildings;
  • Promote sustainable ecosystem-based adaptation measures and increase the capacity to apply such knowledge in practice through dissemination and demonstration workshops;
  • Promote the governance of regional authorities, directors and building managers, and the construction sector to integrate nature-based solutions as part of measures to promote sustainable adaptation in buildings; and
  • Contribute to the development and implementation of a common EU policy on adaptation to climate change by transferring best practices and knowledge to target groups and stakeholders.

Nature-Based Solutions for Climate Change Adaptation in Scholar and Social Buildings: Concepts and Pilot Solutions for Portugal and Spain includes information on the prototypes developed and tested by the LIFE-myBUILDINGisGREEN project in order to contribute to improving resilience in scholar and social buildings by the use of autochthone vegetation. These prototypes (building adaptation) of nature-based solutions (NBS) are applied on walls, roofs, playgrounds, and exterior surfaces of three pilot buildings in Portugal and Badajoz.
