SCOL’AIR project
City/Region : City of Lille , France

Anticipating the implementation of national regulations requiring French cities to check and improve air quality in establishments receiving young children, the city of Lille initiated the SCOL'AIR project in 2013.

This project is based on a cross-cutting approach that calls on the competence of many municipal services such as technical services for maintenance and works in public buildings, but also education and early childhood departments. Since 2013, many actions have been already put in place: awareness campaigns, training for teachers and staff members, installation of systems of measures for indoor air quality, works in school and nursery buildings.

Let's "cup2gether" - circular cup initiative to foster climate protection and sharing economy
Organisation : Cup2gether , Germany

In our city Frankfurt, we have to face 25 million single use cups per year becoming waste. There are some highly committed people bringing own cups or avoiding coffee-to-go, but most of us got used to mobile consumption - we don't want to change culture by prohibition, we want to establish a culture which desires for sustainable solutions. So we started an initiative called "cup2gether" that activated local ambassadors for a circular cup system with a regional produced cup (made of leavings from paper industry, natural resources). We started as official "90-days-challenge" against municipality. Now we established the citywide system.

Lousada: Integrated Education for Sustainability
AWARD
City/Region : Municipality of Lousada , Portugal

Lousada is implementing an innovative way of educating for sustainability. Environmental education is being informally embedded in many different actions across the whole society, so that good environmental practices become natural and needed, without necessarily titling initiatives as ‘green propaganda’.

We are working with schools, private businesses and land owners, cultural groups, sports teams, parishes, the elderly, and many other groups to transform the socio-cultural and economic paradigm in this markedly rural community. We are inspiring and supporting alternative ways of creating conservation areas and job opportunities, engaging the community in doing so while taking care of their natural resources.

"LUCIOLE project" : Urban light optimised for the environment
City/Region : City of Lille , France

Outdoor night time lighting is very present in urban spaces. It’s a major part of ecological disruption and it negatively impacts fauna and flora.

LUCIOLE project aims to limit the impact of light pollution on bats, moths, and the nocturnal insects they feed on. This black network includes a 13-hectare perimeter within a larger biodiversity area of 40 hectares, which will be equipped with a public lighting system that is designed to facilitate the animal travel that traditional lighting impedes. This innovative project has benefited from European Union support, as a part of the ERDF "Nature in the City" program.

The “Ambassadors of Recovery” network
City/Region : City of Lille , France

As a project at the crossroads of economic and ecological considerations, the “Ambassadors of Recovery” network was created by the end of 2018. It is born just after the organisation of a “gratiferia” (free second hand market) during a participatory weekend entitled “Recovery and circular economy”, which took place from 23 to 24 November 2018. At the heart of the reflection was the willing of the City of Lille to get all the inhabitants involved in environmental public policies.

Making Women Visible: Walking in Another Nicosia
Organisation : Center for Gender Equality and History , Cyprus

The goal is to make social and material interventions into the urban space and landscape of Nicosia, aiming to make women's contribution and history visible. Initially, a series of alternative historical walks take place in the city, focusing on women's (in)visibility in the urban landscape. The walks are free and operate as means of a structured dialogue between the team and the participants–coming from different groups living in the city–aiming to construct a plan for interventions and strategically implement them. The aim is to transform the urban space, from a space of women's devaluation into a space of fair recognition.
