BARRIERS AND DRIVERS FOR IMPLEMENTING NATURE-BASED SOLUTIONS - SURVEY FOR EXPERTS

April 18

Participate in the survey and promote the development of cities towards sustainable use of Nature-Based Solutions!

ThinkNature EU-project has launched a survey for experts, inquiring about the barriers and drivers for implementing NBS.

You can find the survey here.

Nature-based solutions (NBS) use nature to create sustainability and resilience, adapt to climate change, and counteract the degradation of ecosystems. Such solutions should bring more diverse nature and natural processes into cities, landscapes and seascapes. They are meant to support economic growth, create jobs, enhance human well-being, and be locally adapted and resource-efficient. Read more: The EU Research and Innovation policy agenda on NBS.

Please also spread the link to the survey among your networks: https://www.think-nature.eu/highlights/questionnaire/

Thank you very much for your valuable input!

Scandinavian Green Roof Award 2017

Scandinavian Green Roof Award 2017

November 29

Scandinavian Green Roof Award 2017 to two projects!

The Scandinavian Green Roof Prize for 2017 was awarded to two winners, Hauschild + Siegel Real Estate in Malmö for Ohboy, and the University of Copenhagen for the Panum Institute, Mærsk-building.
The Ohboy is a private project with a combined residential and hotel building where the relatively small roof surfaces of 300 m2 are efficiently utilized and biodiverse. The Panum Institute, Mærsk-building is a public project, impressive in both its design and size with 5 050 m2 of green roofs. The projects, although different in size, have many things in common including sustainable material use with reduction of non-sustainable plastics, impressive cuts in the runoff from the building sites , and use of biotope design for recreation and aesthetic function.

Annika Kruuse from the City of Malmö, awarded the prize to Cord Siegel and Ola Nielsen from Hauschild & Siegel and Morten Leicht Jeppsen from SLA architects (on behalf of the University of Copenhagen). The award ceremony was held at the BiodiverCity conference on the 22nd of November in Malmö.

The award-jury motivation for the award and pictures from the projects:

 “The green initiative at Ohboy by Hauschild + Siegel is a pioneering project setting a new standard for private developers on how to combine recreation with intense and biodiverse greenery that also manages rainwater in an outstanding way. The green roofs are brave and smart, providing benefits for the residents, the local fauna and to the whole city of Malmö.”

“The green roofs at Panum Institute, Mærsk-building successfully merge large roof surfaces of 5 050 m2 with sophisticated design and replication of different Danish habitats. As a public green roof project it takes responsibility for the public good, being primarily based on recycled materials and with significant cuts in stormwater runoff for better climate adaptation in a dense urban area.”

Quotations from the winners:

”The strength and feeling in doing what was understood as impossible is well worth the effort. It is to a large extent a matter of leaving the (dryness) of the comfort zone. But it takes that everyone involved in the process are leaving the same zone of comfort at the same time, and here we have a great strength in being both architect, developer and owner of the project. No one to stop us and no one to blame. By allowing ourself to act in tentative way we also allow nature and biodiversity to yet again enter our cities, a matter of making space for the organic and allowing parts of the process to be irregular and experimental”, says Ola Nielsen, Landscape architect, Hauschild + Siegel.
“We are happy and very proud of our beautiful new oasis in the middle of Copenhagen. The SUND Campus Park is a green urban space that opens our Faculty to the world, inviting it in. The park and Maersk Tower have attracted much positive attention as a new landmark of the City”, says Dean Ulla Wewer, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen.

“The multiple green roofs of SUND Nature Park and the Mærsk Tower are at once both integrated in the park and in the building while providing both functional and social values to the site. The green roofs help with the climate adaptation of the site through their specially designed soil layer created as self-regulated ecosystems that can handle even 100-years cloud burst events. The roofs have extremely high biodiversity with native meadow species and large trees and can be accessed both from the building and the park. Thus, the green roofs also function as lush, dynamic and social urban spaces where researchers, students and ordinary citizens can relax, meet up and enjoy central Copenhagen’s new nature park up close.”, says Stig L. Andersson, founding partner and design director, SLA.

The jury of the Scandinavian Green Roof Award consisted of board members from the Scandinavian Green Infrastructure Association and the Scandinavian Green Roof Institute.

The Scandinavian Green Infrastructure Association’s (SGIA) annual green roof award is given to recognize excellence in the field of green roofs and to inspire owners, designers and builders toward quality and innovation.

This year nine roofs from all around Scandinavia were nominated. Beside the two winning projects, Tak for Maten in Oslo was also a finalist and the third place winner.
