Project's Homepage

GREENSCOM (Communicating Urban Growth and Green) is part of the European Union Fifth Framework Program, Key Action 4 (City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage, from the programme "Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development." Its objective is to study and to develop urban planning and governance related to the problems of growing urban regions and their green and open spaces. Growth and green are usually seen to be in confrontation, but the situation is in fact more complex, and the way that these issues are dealt with are related to both national and local politics and cultures. The project consists of two theoretical studies or workpackages on communication, governance and policy instruments, seven case studies in five European cities, where tools used by planners and stakeholders are analysed, and a "toolbox" that is currently being developed.
