Best practices

Ecology Constructively is not only about getting ready for the conferences. We are also working on educational posters that present the most interesting urban solutions of sustainable development in Europe.

The posters show places in Europe where sustainable development and spatial planning are applied daily. Cities, neighborhoods and streets that make a good example are also well described on our website in Best practices section. Take a look!

Best practices are the most interesting examples of sustainable development ideas implemented in real life. We present European cities, districts or single squares and streets that can inspire others. They show what it is like to live in a sustainable and well thought out urban environment.

Materials are from educational posters that are being made under the project Ecology Constructively. The posters will be displayed during conferences held under the project.
