Making Nicosia a greener, healthier place

Description

The City-Zen Roadshow visited Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus. The group of international environmental experts, led by Craig Martin and Andy van den Dobbelsteen (AE+T), studied the city together with residents and created a strategy to make the city a greener and healthier place. 

The EU-funded project City-Zen Roadshow develops energy plans with accompanying toolboxes for European cities. The team from BK Bouwkunde spends five days in a city with other academic partners and collaborates with local authorities, citizens, and market players. Each Roadshow is prepared through a SWAT studio, a master studio for students from the Building Technology track within the MSc Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences. In the intensive workshops, plans are drawn up for the energy transition of neighbourhoods in each city. The key to success lies in including the local residents. “In cities, everything is about people. They need to start doing things differently,” explains Craig Martin, leader of the City-Zen Roadshows.
