Nature for renewal: discover Turin from a nature-based point of view!

About this Event

ProGIreg's mid-term conference will take participants for a virtual journey through the proGIreg Turin Living Lab in Mirafiori Sud, explicating the successes and challenges of the regeneration efforts. Join the conference for a chance to learn how to harness nature-based solutions in post-industrial districts together with citizens.

ProGIreg uses nature for urban regeneration with and for citizens.

The project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and will run from June 2018 until 2023. ProGIreg stands for ‘productive Green Infrastructure for post-industrial urban regeneration’: nature for renewal.

The dynamic conference will entail three virtual visits with a multitude of stakeholders, interviews, presentations discussions and debates to delve into the pioneering work of the Turin Living Lab.


April 21st //9.30 am - Introduction to Torino Living Lab

The first stop will be a school where a green wall and a raised bed garden have been made. The second one will be the "WOW space" where a green roof and a pollinator friendly garden with some beehives have been realized in an abandoned public building.

April 21st // 2.00 pm - Along the Sangone river

The first stop will be the "new soil" test site and the second will be the "Orti Generali" site where citizen rented gardens and community garden areas coexist. The route will take place along the Sangone River.
