Kadikoy Municipality Integrated and Participatory Climate Action
City/Region : City of Kadikoy/İstanbul/Kadikoy Municipality , Turkey

Being the first in Turkey, Kadıköy Municipality has been calculating annual institutional greenhouse gas emissions resulting from its buildings and services since 2010; it takes necessary measures for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and monitors the amount of reduction on annual basis. Based on the accumulation of knowledge and experience as well as the need for the mitigation of the impacts of climate change, the Municipality has extended its efforts from institutional to city (district) level, and in September, 2017 it started the project of “Integrated and Participatory Climate Action for Kadıköy” which directly addresses transformation within the community.

SEE* H2O – A new vision about the water use
City/Region : Loures Municipality , Portugal

Loures is embracing a new vision when it comes to water: adding value to the resource during all urban cycle, betting on an active monitoring, sharing knowledge amongst the citizens and involving stakeholders and interested parts.

This mind set results in a panoply of guidelines: Water Lines Recovery Strategic Plan, Hydrographic Network Monitoring Plan, Municipal Strategy for Environmental Education and, connecting them all, Water Sustainability Plan (on development).

All of this is resulting in a bunch of practical actions that are improving the value of the water on Loures’s territory.

Smart usage of urban space connecting the hillside sections and old core of Sarajevo
Organisation : Association of Engineers of Transportation and Communication in Bosnia and Herzegovina , Bosnia and Herzegovina

Our idea resulted from the fact that the settlements were built on high  hills around Sarajevo through history. We present project that is inovative and the first one which bridges a centuries-old aspiration of connecting two hillsides of the city, but doesn’t violate the appearance of old town. We would improve existing cable car and add component of public transport in hillside settlements to it. This conceptual design represents potential of Sarajevo getting new cable car in the area of hillside on other part of old town, which gives Sarajevo an opportunity to be unique.
