CLEVER Cities is an EU funded international project which aims to regenerate cities with the strategic planning approach called "Nature-Based-Solutions (NBS)." It focuses on three main front-runner cities; London, Hamburg, and Milan, to learn from their hands-on experiences and local knowledge in implementing NBS approach.
