Urbanization of cities is creating lots of challenges. Because of the abundance of concrete and asphalt, flooding and heat stress are an increasingly prevalent problem. With more green spaces collecting the rainwater we can face this challenge, but space in the city is scarce. That’s why the RESILIO project is utilizing the unused space on the rooftops in inventive ways. The municipality of Amsterdam in collaboration with 8 partners is realizing 10.000 m2 of smart blue green roofs.
RESILIO is an acronym for ‘Resilience nEtwork of Smart Innovative cLImate-adapative rOoftops’. RESILIO is a collaboration between the municipality of Amsterdam, Waternet, MetroPolder Company, Rooftop Revolution, HvA, VU, Stadgenoot, de Alliantie and De Key. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative. Read more about the partners.
