EPLUG

The European Platform of Urban Greening (EPLUG) has the goal to form centers of excellent vocational education, to form collaborations and to increase the knowledge and the skills required to address climate adaptation, biodiversity, and well-being in the urban, green living environment, and to broaden the expertise among professionals in Europe.

The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. Together with partners from Denmark, Finland, Romania, Spain, and the Czech Republic, Yuverta builds an international network with diverse educational institutions that work together with companies and governments to align the academic program to the regional needs in Europe. You can find more information on the website of EPLUG.

From particulates to green roofs

The focus, expertise, and climate zones vary per region. Bundling forces and sharing good practices between the diverse regions help us learn from green methods elsewhere. Good examples are green roofs and roof gardens, and the utilization of specific trees and shrubs to capture particulates. You can also think of edible parks and green solutions for heavy rainfall or droughts.
