A BLUEPRINT FOR WEAVING LOCAL RESOURCES INTO REGENERATIVE URBAN ECOSYSTEMS
DISCOVERING THE POWER OF UNDERUTILIZED RESOURCES FOR SUSTAINABLE NEIGHBOURHOOD REGENERATION
"Urban regeneration brings back underutilized assets and redistributes opportunities, increasing urban prosperity and quality of life." - UN Habitat
All across Europe, cities are being renewed, regenerated, rebuilt. Former industrial areas give way to redevelopment projects that are set to extract maximum value from "underutilized" urban spaces. Often with profound consequences for local communities who currently live and work in these areas.
We need better methods and strategies for regenerating neighbourhoods. Making neighbourhood regeneration truly regenerative means that we start considering locally available materials, skills, knowledge and human resources as the point of departure for the future vision of a circular, inclusive and sustainable city.
The Cartography is a blueprint for finding, mapping and connecting resources in local neighbourhoods into circular & regenerative local economies. It is an outcome of ongoing work with nine pilot teams working on neighbourhood regeneration strategies as part of the CENTRINNO Project.
In CENTRINNO, nine pilot teams from diverse European cities are working together to foster a more inclusive and sustainable model in neighbourhoods.
Industrial heritage sites are focal hubs of innovative, inclusive and circular urban regeneration.
Between 2020 and 2024, CENTRINNO pilots will apply different cartographic methods and tools to identify local strengths, challenges and opportunities that can be leveraged in a local circular system.
CENTRINNO envisions locally productive and circular cities in which everyone has a role to play.
From local makers and recyclers to schools and public institutions.
