Led by Hamburg, London, and Milan, CLEVER Cities was launched in 2018 under the Horizon 2020 program of the EU, aiming to position nature-based solutions as a means to drive urban regernation for sustainable and socially inclusive cities across Europe, South America and China. Through exchange between cities, inclusive collaboration and multi-disciplinary learning, the project structure will ensure that the urban transforamtion process is open and tailored to local needs.
In June 2019, ICLEI East Asia, together with Xi'an Jjiaotong Univeristy, Peking University, Tongji University, and the China Center for Urban Development, kicked off the Chinese research team for the project. ICLEI East Asia is mainly responsible for components requiring direct cooperation or synergy between China and Europe, including the facilitation of nature-based solutions regional hub in China, and the development of the capacity building and exchange mechanism between Chinese and European partners.
