Purpose and goal

Urbanization is a prerequisite for continued economic growth. The accompanying densification and increased use of paved surfaces leads to flooding, less water filtration, declining trees and global warming. The project mainly aims to minimize the negative consequences and make urban environment more prepared for climate changes, e.g. more intense rainfalls and increased temperatures, by creating durable, functional and attractive paving surfaces coexisting with green areas.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
