The LIFE-GREEN4GREY project has refurbished a park in Zaventem, Belgium, transforming it into a bustling waterfront. The site now provides flood defences to communities living downstream, and a natural refuge for both wildlife and its peri-urban neighbours. Flooding presents Europe with a mounting environmental challenge. As the climate shifts, many parts of the EU expect more sudden and intense rain showers that could overwhelm existing waterways and spill over into built environments.
