Women in greening the city: solutions to more self-sufficient and
resilient urban communities
Due to heavy urbanisation, approaches in greener cities are required.
This is addressed by a number of initiatives, including seeing the city
as an ecosystem, and the dialogue between economy and ecology.
Sustainable and resilient cites mean connection between the city and the
landscape, bringing the landscape into the city, for example through
nature based solutions such as green walls or through more open spaces
which are green, such as urban parks. In this context the landscape
quality of the city can be judged. The renewable energy in the city can
relate to solar energy of the passive house which can be a house of
heavy geomaterials. In this contribution the authors present their
approach to sustainable and resilient cities, including the first
author’s approach to renewable energy and landscape quality. The first
author would like to thank the Inclusiveness Target Countries grant
scheme for supporting participation in the conference to represent the
COST Action TU1401 (http://www.cost-rely.eu/).
