Advocating for GI in smart growth

This paper aims to introduce and examine green infrastructure planning throughout the so-called smart concept. Green infrastructure addresses the connectivity of ecosystems, their protection and the provision of ecosystem services and it is included in the frame of the EU Biodiversity Strategy. The strategy is built on the three objectives: smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. To achieve these goals sustainable growth needs to go hand in hand with smart growth to collect the full benefits of a green economy, and improving the EU's performance in education, research/innovation and in digital society.
