Blue Green Infrastructure project seeks two young professionals

Dear Young Planners

It is our pleasure to inform you that IFLA are looking for two young professionals for the Blue Green Infrastructure project.

Here is their post :

Are you a young professional who would like to get equipped with the necessary tools to approach personal growth, complex problems and translate these into powerful solutions that will be applied in practice? You could reach these goals by joining our project at Except Integrated Sustainability.

We are looking for two young professionals with aspirations to science, data and entrepreneurship who could help us realize the project 'Blue-Green Infrastructure' - the backbone of the future European Union green developments and circular economy.

Green infrastructure is a strategically planned network of natural and semi-natural areas with other environmental features designed and managed to deliver a wide range of ecosystem services. These include water purification, air quality, space for recreation and climate mitigation and adaptation. This network of green (land) and blue (water) spaces can improve environmental conditions, and therefore citizens' health and quality of life. This is due to the enhancement of biodiversity, both from a functional perspective and from cultural/aesthetical perspectives.

The project focuses on the development of a practical guidance manual, which guides the implementation of appropriate biodiversity research into design, construction, and management of blue-green infrastructure for European countries. This manual will be used by academia, government, business, industry and citizens when researching, designing and planning individual and integrated solutions in cities, regionally, and nationally.

Partners in the project are International Federation of Landscape ArchitectsEurope (IFLA Europe), Belgium, Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC),United Kingdom, BiodivERsA (BDA), France, Natural Resources Wales (NRW), United Kingdom and Except Integrated Sustainability (Except), the Netherlands.
