E1 I never thought trees were so important to the city

The title of the multiplier event in Cyprus was “I never thought trees were so important to the city”, and a dedicated logo was designed to reflect this. The event’s objectives were to spread the knowledge acquired by students during the CliCCHE project regarding the role of the “green-based solutions” applied to the city, on the basis of analysis designed and developed with the support of the public administration and citizens. In particular, the goal of the workshop is to make people understand the relationship between green areas, trees, climate change and health, through the adoption of a degraded urban space that will be virtually regenerated and reactivated by students, teachers and citizens. The multiplier event was hosted in the European Researcher’s Night, organized by the Research and Innovation Foundation, which took place in the Cyprus Expo venue on 29 September 2023, starting at 9am and ending at 9pm. This national event aims to encourage the public to become familiar with the world of science and research and at the same time to strengthen the public image of researchers, whilst highlighting the important role they play in society. The European Researcher’s Night’s objectives therefore align perfectly well with those of the CliCCHE multiplier event for Cyprus, which fosters a co-participatory and innovative education approach.

E4 Forever Communities

The multiplier event “Forever Communities” claimed for attention to the city green areas, in a scope related to the adaptations to climate change and related health issues in urban areas. We aimed at disclosing the project as much as possible in the Portuguese academia and local civil society. We counted on previous contacts – associations, stakeholders, etc – to help us in the dissemination of the project results, although the main targeted population are the students at Iscte.
“Forever Communities” took place in Iscte and in Alvalade District. Both places were meant to host academic and non academic people.
28 September 2023. We followed a classical day organization of a morning with seminar type, to present the project and conferences/lectures. Our attention was on build environment and urban green areas, with special detail to include solutions.
The afternoon was designed to include a walk and a workshop, described in the following sections of this report.
This Multiplier Event was design to host specific knowledge and to boost skills considering green spaces in the cities, so we invited biologists and architects to share their knowledge. Participants include students, researchers from different universities, workers in the municipality, and even a Theatre Company!
