Living Lab for the realization of green-blue infrastructure measures

>> "Urban heat islands" arise, especially where there is dense development and little ventilation. But there are simple, natural antidotes that have been tried and tested for thousands of years: plants and water. <<  

Quote from the "LiLa4Green" information brochure


LiLa4Green stands for "Living Lab for Green,” i.e., a living laboratory: innovative social science ­methods are combined ­with digital techniques (augmented reality app) in the development of Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) with the greatest possible social impact and acceptance. LiLa4Green aims to support the realization of green-blue infrastructure projects (urban green as well as urban water areas) in public street space in an existing area.

In order to realize projects that not only make sense from a climate-sensitive point of view and take into account social aspects (quality of life, health, safety, usability, etc.), a Living Lab was set up. The users of the Living Lab will be ­involved in the implementation process ­(co-creation) to increase the awareness of the positive effects of green-blue infrastructure measures as well as the acceptance and willingness to implement and invest. The concrete implementation area is Innerfavoriten in the 10th district of Vienna and as follower area the Matznerviertel in the 14th district of Vienna. The need for measures to counteract urban heat island (UHI) effects is high in these dense existing areas, but the financial power is low. While this situation is not unique, but on the contrary relatively common in cities, it poses particular challenges for the implementation of "Nature-Based Solutions" (NBS), including in Vienna.

In the Living Lab ("LiLa" for Green), different methods are tested with residents and stakeholders in order to familiarize the population, investors, developers and planners with the advantages of green-blue infrastructure, with a focus on public street space, and to involve them in the implementation process. It will be investigated how smart user participation can be designed to increase the awareness of the population for mitigation and adaptation measures to climate change.

By combining innovative social science methods, artistic actions and the latest digital techniques, a broad public is addressed and a target group-oriented communication of contents and contexts is made possible. For this purpose, new forms of visualization (augmented reality) will also be tested. In the monitoring phase, a combination of measurements, simulations and surveys will be applied. Conclusions for an optimal implementation and a continuity of the measures (also after the end of the project) will be derived from this.

The actions taken, the use of new forms of smart user participation and the visual presentation of the measures and their effects draw attention to the issue, stimulate discussions and trigger rethinking processes. These are important steps to achieve a broad acceptance of blue-green infrastructure measures in public road space. The implementation of NBS in the demo area shows that through intelligent networking of water, green spaces and elements, urban oases can also be created in existing buildings and lead to a higher quality of the immediate open space in existing buildings.

 

LiLa4Green is a research project funded by the Climate and Energy Fund as part of the Smart Cities Initiative.
