The Living Labbers webinar series of the European Network of Living Labs showcases the variety of Living Labs across the globe. Realised in collaboration with the iSCAPE and UNaLab projects, the webinars are structured around the Urban Living Lab framework: providing insight into various aspects of Living Labs' contexts, innovations, governance & financing models, and even some personal views on their way of working and the people involved.
Next up in the series we present to you the UNaLab front-runner city Tampere.
Within the frameworks of the UNaLab project, the city is developing nature-based management of stormwater in the pilot sites Hiedanranta and Vuores. Tampere is one of the demonstration cities in the project, especially due to the stormwater management system that runs via the Vuores central park. The other demonstration cities are Eindhoven and Genova.
The City of Tampere’s aim is to further develop the stormwater management system in Vuores and monitor the functionality of the system, i.e. how efficiently the detention and infiltration structures and the wetland clean the stormwater before it is directed into the oligotrophic lakes in the area. The experience gained in Vuores will be utilised in Hiedanranta, where the planning of the stormwater management system and green areas is only beginning.
