The Urban Pathways Implementation Tracker is tracking the Projects Progress
Outlook: Planned and/or Possible Future Action
District integration through the development of an EcoZone in Santiago
In the context of the cooperation that Urban Pathways has established with the Chilean NGO Ciudad Emergente (CEM), the possibility of building on the activities that will be carried out by CEM under the Street for Kids Project from NACTO by combining them with the UP EcoZone approach has been discussed. CEM plans to improve the connectivity between 3 neighbouring districts (Comunas) in Santiago, i.e., Independencia, Renca and Recoleta, with a focus on schools by im- proving sidewalks, public spaces and implementing pilot bike lanes between the districts. UP is currently in the process of identifying local NGOs that could contribute to the intersectoral approach and the awareness raising activities related to both mobility and waste that UP wants to promote through the EcoZone concept.
Budget: 30,000 EUR (20,000 EUR funded by NACTO)
Estimated direct GHG emissions reduction: 36 tCO2/year
