About B.Green

The B.Green Handbook was developed and published during the B.Green project which sought new green infrastructure solutions suitable for northern climate – and particularly for the Baltic Sea region. The project also mapped out digital tools that enable planning and implementation of these solutions. In relation to this, B.Green project launched several open calls with different themes and consequently piloted various green infrastructure solutions in close co-operation with residents and experts in Helsinki as well in Tallinn.

One of the project objectives was to communicate the benefits of participatory urban planning to all levels of relevant stakeholders, including city planners, decision-makers and residents. By enabling better planning processes, we are able to make cities greener and enhance the wellbeing of the residents.  

The B.Green project was running from 1.2.2020 to 31.12.2022 and it was coordinated by Forum Virium Helsinki. The project partners were the City of Helsinki, City of Tallinn, and the Stockholm Environment Institute Tallinn Center (SEI Tallinn). The project was funded by the Interreg Central Baltic Programme which supports international development projects between Estonia, Finland, Latvia and Sweden.
